The Volkswagen Golf GTD was designed to be the best of both worlds, the driving thrill and exhilaration of the iconic VW Golf GTI, married with a modern, clean diesel which would eat up the motorway miles without leaving your bank account drained.
So, the Golf GTD is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing, an assuming family hatchback, that offers an exciting and engaging drive. Don’t let its looks deceive you the GTD has some serious pace, delivering hot hatch thrills and even managing to produce a little bit of its GTi sibling’s throaty rasp.
With the same steering set-up as its GTi brother, it a real driver’s car; that said it’s still comfortable and well-behaved around town and on the school run, changing its personality into that of a relaxed run-around, when practicality dictates.
Sit inside a used Golf GTD and you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in the GTi, their interiors are virtually identical, with a liberal sprinkling of leather and the customary exceptional build quality that we’ve come to expect from Volkswagen.
The GTD offers a surprising amount of space and with split rear seats, meaning you can carry a decent load when necessary too. It’s a five-star performer too achieving the top rating for safety from Euro NCAP and for security from Thatcham research.
