As the GTI Mk VI hits the road for the first time, its sister car is unveiled at the Leipzig Motor Show: the new diesel-powered Golf GTD. The ability to accelerate to 62 mph in 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 136 mph are combined with average fuel consumption of 53.3mpg and a range in excess of 650 miles on a single tank of fuel to create a hot hatch of the moment. Lessons learned through the creation of the sixth generation GTI are applied to the new GTD. Sharp responses and an agile chassis complement the car's substantial torque available from as low as 1,750rpm.
