Diesel Hot-Hatch: Golf R GTD Coming?

Rumor

Would come with 4MOTION all-wheel drive.

Aftertelling you about the possibility of additional Volkswagen R models beingworked on by the company, it seems that one such model might be a dieselhot-hatch in a Golf body: the Golf GTD R. According to Motoring, this modelwould utilize the twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel engine currently availablein VW's European Passat. Thanks to the company's MQB architecture, this engine,which currently produces 236 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, could easily befitted to the Golf.

This engine would be the most powerful diesel ever to be fitted in aGolf, requiring VW's 4MOTION all-wheel drive to keep it grounded. But wouldthis heavy engine be suited to the Golf's lighter weight? Time will tell.
