Be Wiser Insurance

The number of people taking out car insurance policies in the UK for Volkswagen models may increase after motorists see the latest offering from the manufacturer.

Unveiled at the Leipzig motor show, the diesel-powered Golf GTD is capable of 53.3 mpg and boasts CO2 emissions of 139 g/km.

Drivers may also be impressed to hear the vehicle is capable of covering in excess of 650 miles on one tank of fuel.

In terms of performance, the GTD can go from standing to 62 mph in 8.1 seconds and has a top speed of 136 mph.

Volkswagen described the car as being different in appearance to the standard Golf, with the same badge style, front-end design and honeycomb grille as the GTI.

The GTD will be available to order next month and will go on sale on June 22nd.

Prices have not yet been revealed, but Volkswagen announced they are likely to start at less than £22,000.

In other news, the Golf released earlier this year was recently named Best Small Family Car by Fleet News.
