Volkswagen Golf GTD and Golf R priced


Ahead of its expected local launch later this month, Volkswagen South Africa has released pricing details of the revised Golf R and highly anticipated Golf GTD.


A familiar badge in Europe having originally debuted as a more powerful version of the Golf Mk II, the latest GTD slots in below the GTI with power coming from Volkswagen's stalwart 2.0 TDI oil burner developing 130 kW and 350 Nm of torque. 

Paired to a six-speed DSG, the GTD will get to 100 km/h from zero in 7.4 seconds, and reach a top speed of 230 km/h while consuming diesel at a rate of 5.3 L/100 km. Pricing starts at R506 700, undercutting the sticker price of the GTI by a substantial R39 100.


Sitting at the top of the range, the all-wheel drive R retains its 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, but with a bump in power from 206 kW to 213 kW with torque remaining unchanged at 380 Nm. Linked to a brand new seven-speed DSG 'box, Volkswagen claims the R will complete the benchmark 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.6 seconds and top out at 250 km/h.

Fitted as standard with Volkswagen's XDS differential and R Sport suspension, the Golf R retails for R647 300 before options.

Prices on VW's are getting out of hand, the man in the street cannot afford these prices, we will revert to other brands!

Not enough car for that price tag.I would rather go for a 2015/2016 Audi RS Q3 at about R600k with low mileage and 228kw with 450NM torque and an impressive 8L/100km.
