The Rivervale Car Leasing Guide to the Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI GTD
The Volkswagen Golf has been on our roads for over 40 years! It is one of only 2 vehicles that has managed to win European Car of the Year twice. The Golf won the award in 1992 and 2015, the only other vehicle to win twice is the Renault Clio. The Golf even won World Car of the Year in 2009 so they must be doing something right!
We have a Volkswagen Golf fan here in the Rivervale office – Jim our Admin Manager currently drives a VW Golf GTD and here he is to tell us why it’s his car of choice …..
The GTD version of the Golf is for those who appreciate a little style, want maximum comfort and love the extra thrill of a sporty drive!
From the outside GTD styling offers uniquely shaped front and rear bumpers along with a black honeycomb front air intake and radiator grille. There’s lowered sports suspension and a prominent rear spoiler.
The GTD’s unique look doesn’t end on the outside, the interior is a quirky Jacara Grey tartan pattern with sports seats in the front. For driver convenience you will find Bluetooth, Sat Nav, infotainment system, ultrasonic front and rear optical and audible parking sensors and keyless entry.
Safety wise this Golf has a 5* NCAP safety rating with many features including a pre-crash warning system, a warning buzzer and light for unfastened front seatbelts, fuel cut off safety device and multiple airbags!
The comments above do not necessarily reflect Rivervale's views unless clearly stated.
