Volkswagen is to hit the North America market with its 2015 Volkswagen GTD by the mid of the year 2015. With the last model of the GTD not released in the US, this time this launch of the model in the country is sure to cheer up its fans. In fact, this news will make the faces of its fans even brighter when they will come to know that the model to be released in the country will have better features and a better performing capability!
The car sports 18-inch Nogaro wheels, GTI-style, Clark tartan-clad sport seats, 181-hp producing EA288 2.0-liter engine, 225/40 Bridgestone Potenzas, Driving Profile Selector with four modes-Eco, Normal, Sport and Individual for superior Sport & Sound, ventilated compound brake discs with flashy red calipers and so forth. The features of the model are a new generation and impressive to make the buyers feel special. It has in fact, been admitted by the testers of the car as well that the driving experience of the 2015 Volkswagen GTD is better than the 2011 Jetta TDI.
What’s more, the VW GTD has progressive electrical steering. But the thing missing in the model is electrically actuated mechanical locking front differential which is found in the GTI Performance model. But that is hardly being missed and hardly makes any difference as there are other impressive factors to divert the attention of its buyers. There is multi-mode stability program like On, ESC Sport and Off collaborating with both DCC and XDS+. With these dynamics systems integrated with the GTD, the car performs better and fine.
The GTD picks a speed of 0-60 mph in just 7.5 sec or less at an economic price likely to be around $27,000 only. The wait of the US buyers for the VW GTD will be worth it with a chance to own a latest featured GTD at last.
