Report: Volkswagen to import the Golf GTD in 2015 as a 2016 model, 0-60 in 7 sec. and a sporty 40+ mpg

It’s pretty well established that the go-to ultimatum in the hot hatchback world has been the Volkswagen GTI. But to make their own selection a little bit more difficult, Volkswagen reportedly confirmed that they’ll be importing the all-new oil-burning Golf GTD into the US beginning in 2015.

It will be sold in both three- and five-door configuration and is in essence a standard GTI, just fitted with a performance-oriented turbocharged 2.0L diesel four-banger, which VW claims will get more than 40 mpg on the highway while returning a 0-60 sprint time of just seven seconds.

“We see it as a very important part of our full range of offerings, a technology halo for our diesel technology,” Volkswagen’s product manager for the Golf, Andreas Valbuena said in a press conference.

Prices are expected to start around $27,000 for the new Volkswagen Golf GTD, which will be sold as a 2016 model.
