The 2011 Volkswagen Golf TDI was chosen today by Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com as one of the Top 10 Green Cars of 2011. This year, kbb.com editors considered the leading vehicles that offered superior fuel economy and CO2 emissions while also providing all the safety, comfort and driving enjoyment that make each vehicle a pleasure to own.
As long-time fans of the Volkswagen Golf lineup for its European driving feel, hatchback utility and interior quality, kbb.com editors selected the Golf TDI as a best-in-class vehicle that is both environmentally-friendly and fun behind the wheel.
The Golf 2.0L TDI clean diesel model offers 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway, as well as an 8.6 second sprint from zero to 60 mph. Available in both two-door and four-door models, the Golf TDI is marked by its fusion of German-tuned performance and impressive fuel economy – compliments of an advanced electronically-controlled turbocharger and the electronically-controlled direct injection fuel system.
For drivers that desire a fuel-sipping compact that emits approximately 25 percent less greenhouse gas and achieves more than 30 percent better fuel economy compared to a similar gasoline engine, the 2011 Golf TDI is more than up to the task.
