The 2011 VW Golf TDI recently earned the title of Top Green Car of 2011 from Kelley Blue Book last month.
This year, the KBB editors considered a range of vehicles that offered superior fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions while also providing all the safety, comfort and driving enjoyment that make this kind of personal transportation a pleasure to own. The Golf gets high marks in all of these categories: its European driving feel, hatchback versatility and impeccable build quality earned the Golf TDI as a best-in-class vehicle that is easy on the environment and incredibly fun behind the wheel.
The Golf 2.0L TDI clean diesel offers 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway and is available in both two-door and four-door models. It 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 shopping for a fuel-efficient 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.
