Road Test: 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTD

If you want Volkswagen Golf with a GTI looks and diesel engine, then your choice is GTD. GTD has sport bumpers, black grille with GTD logo, tinted rear lights, rear spoiler, chromed exhaust pipes, 17″ light alloy wheels and it is lowered by 15 mm compared to the standard model. With all these details even the diesel engined Golf looks like a much sportier car. Actually, the only differences between GTD and GTI are the grill trims, which are red in the GTI and chromed in the GTD. Another thing what makes a difference between these two cars are the dual exhaust pipes, which are side by side in the GTD. While in the GTI they are on different sides of the car. Last and probably the hardest detail to notice are the brake calibers, which are red in the GTI and boring steel grey in this GTD. Well, all you need to fix this is a paint can. Otherwise these two cars look very much alike. Inside the car there are sporty front seats with the classic Jacky-pattern. The ceiling is upholstered in black cloth, and in the doors and in the dashboard there are black striped trims. The three-spoke GT steering wheel is leather-upholstered, as well as the shift knob and the handbrake handle.
