VW Golf GT TDI 140

Few cars have commanded such enduring appeal as the VW Golf. With global sales now exceeding 25m and a history dating back 30 years, it’s a car that appears on most hatchback buyers’ shopping lists at some point in their motoring lives.

The undisputed sweet spot of the Golf range is the 140bhp GT TDI. In many respects a more convincing GT than the petrol GTI, it reaches 60mph in little more than 9sec, tops out at 127mph and returns nearly 50mpg in mixed motoring.
