The upcoming Volkswagen GTD is a fuel-efficient automobile that even discerning drivers will love to get into. It's packed with the same size engine as the gas-powered version (2.0 liter), but the GTD is equipped instead with a high-performance turbo diesel engine that provides 168 horsepower and 260 pounds per foot of torque, according to Autoblog.
Those statistics lend the Volkswagen GTD about the equivalent of 44.4 MPG in preliminary European tests, with a 0-60 of about 8 seconds. Sweet!
