HOW did a car as good as the Volkswagen Golf GTD sneak up on us?
Vieira's work makes the system easier to use, and the book includes a list of GTD tools and insights on using the methodology in our cloud-enabled era.
As with all diesels it's the mid range performance which makes the GTD shine and an increase in torque of almost 10 per cent from the previous model from just 1,750rpm means its pulling power really delivers the goods.
You're not going to be buying a GTD estate just for its performance, you'll be wanting a looker, too.

Auto Business News-July 3, 2013--Volkswagen AG to launch new GTD performance diesel in US(C)1994-2013 ENPublishing - http://www.
THE new Volkswagen Golf GTD is now available to order from PS25,285.
0-litre GTD pumps out 170bhp - not quite as punchy as the GTI but still enough to make it a real driver's machine.
Under the Scrappage scheme the GTD will cost pounds 20,450, while the quicker but thirstier GTi will start at pounds 21,015.
Up to 100kg lighter in fact than the car it replaces and, in GTD guise at least, looks much sleeker and much more sporty.
