DSG dual clutch gearbox
The DSG dual clutch gearbox with its brand new smaller selector lever guarantees fun behind the wheel without any interruptions, helping reduce fuel consumption. Pressing on the selector lever enables you to easily select your chosen driving mode, which is then activated via the electrically connected shift-by-wire gearbox. Particularly handy in a traffic jam: When combined with the Travel Assist feature, the system can help you to pull away and brake.
The true superiority of the Golf GTD is hidden under its bonnet. The modern engine technology in your Golf GTD is characterised by its economy, high torque and power. Its 2.0 l TDI engine, with its full, exciting sound, delivers impressive performance of 200 HP – imposingly underlined with a torque of 400 Nm. It is just the right engine for you if you like driving and drive a lot, but still want to keep your consumption down.
Who would have thought that a little phrase like “electronic differential lock XDS” could bring such a broad smile to your face? This is precisely what happens in the Golf GTD. That’s because the standard XDS delivers more traction, which helps you to feel safe when cornering. For example, the precise application of pressure to one side results in sportier, faster and more accurate cornering, so it comes as no surprise that you feel yourself start to smile when you spot a curve ahead.
