The 2011 Volkswagen Golf TDI was chosen by Kelly Blue Book’s kbb.com as one of the Top 10 Green Cars of 2011. Rather than simply selecting the Top 10 vehicles in fuel efficiency, the editors at kbb.com sought a variety of vehicles for the list, as not everyone pursuing greater economy will be happy with a hybrid or plug-in vehicle. This year, the editors considered the leading vehicles that offered superior fuel economy and low CO2 emissions for its class while providing all the safety, creature comforts, and drivability that would make it a pleasure to own.
“The sheer number and types of choices in the Green Cars category have grown remarkably in the last year, with new plug-in electrically driven vehicles alongside an increased number of traditional gasoline-powered cars with improved fuel economy, as well as hybrids and diesels,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com. “Whether drivers are looking to be more environmentally friendly or seeking to save cash at the gas pump or both, the latest Top 10 Green Cars list from kbb.com offers a variety of choices to suit drivers’ various Green Car wants and needs.”
As long-time fans of the VW Golf lineup for its European driving feel, hatchback utility and interior quality, kbb.com selected the Golf TDI as a best-in-class vehicle that is both environmentally-friendly and fun behind the wheel. The Golf 2.0-liter TDI clean diesel model offers 30 mpg (7.8-liters per 100km) city and 42 mpg (5.6-liters per 100km) 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.
