The engine would be connected to a six-speed manual transmission. The model will be able to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 kmph) in 7.5 seconds and will come with a top speed of 143 mph (230 kmph).

Golf product manager Andreas Valbuena stated that for them this model is a very important part of their full range of offerings and a technology halo for their diesel technology.

The Golf GTD in the US is expected to cost approximately $27,000 as a 2016 model.
