Mk7 GTD coming to America

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...o-america.html

182 hp
280 lb-ft torque
2.0 litre TDI
67 MPG with 6 speed manual, or 60 MPG with DSG

All the handling performance of the GTI, but the fuel efficiency of the TDI models. This will be a popular car!

From AutoMedia.com : The official Volkswagen USA Twitter page (@VW) this morning responded to a fan’s question by posting: “We have no plans to bring the GTD to the US at this time.” Then we received a message that clears things up a bit.

“Our official position is that we are investigating bringing the car to the U.S., but there is no decision,” Volkswagen USA Product and Technology Manager Mark Gillies said in an e-mail to autoMedia.

Hope they get the okay.

GTD would be sweet, but based on the current TDI pricing I'm guessing the price would push close to $30k. Kind of insane.

It's looking more and more likely that the GTD will be coming to 'Merica

I think Autoblog has it right. They are estimating $27k. I think placing this between the GTI and the Golf R is where it will end up. I'm hoping my GTI will last long enough for me to pick up a GTD when they arrive. I don't push my GTI to anywhere near the limits but I enjoy the comfort it affords and the ability to get moving when I need to. I already drive to maximize fuel economy. The GTD will only help my cause even more. I'm pretty excited it about it making it over here.

Not a GTD, but I saw the Mk7 Golf TDI last week.
