Volkswagen Golf 7 GTD 2017 Specs
The GTD 2017 shows improved in several respects than before. Let us first talk of its technical characteristics, the appearance that perhaps care more fans of the genre. The engine remains a TDI common rail four cylinder 2.0 liter, but they change the values of torque and power. Specifically, the units that are under the hood is capable of delivering 184 horses at 3,500 rpm, combined with a torque of 380 Nm, constant between 1,750 and 3,250 RPM.
The power increase is reflected in the most brilliant performance: acceleration from 0 to in Volkswagen say the 100 km/h is done in 7.5 seconds and the maximum speed is 230 kilometres per hour, when the sixth series would “only” to 222 mph. Faster Yes, but at the same time also greener.

The front wheel is obviously, as usual. Latest technical data we quote concerns the weight of 1,320 kg, which turns out to be quite content.
PLAYING THE GTI
Aesthetically the designers equipped the GTD a really aggressive body kit. To most people, such a look maybe distracted, might seem to be in front of a Golf GTI, which really isn’t. This is because the two cars are very similar. The front has a new bumper with larger air intakes and a chrome-plated beaded mask and logo GTD. There is also, of course, also on the side skirts, rear spoiler and large alloy wheels (18 inches or larger as an option). There is a new front and rear LED light clusters with slightly bronzed, burnished the two exhaust tailpipes on the left side and the rear bumper.
The suspension was lowered by 15 mm in the comparison with the “regular” Makeover Volkswagen Golf 7 GTD 2017.
Going inside is the typical Scottish upholstery for the seats, which are tighter than those of the standard versions. Pedals, steering wheel and shift knob are sporty and most attentive eyes will notice the presence of the sound system Composition Touch (just look at the screen in the center of the dashboard).
