Spied in SA! Hot but frugal Golf GT

Forced induction at its best! The Golf GT uses a combination of super- and turbocharger, and it was snapped by a Wheels24 reader recently doing the rounds in Pretoria.

Reader Nico Potgieter snapped these models outside the Eastwood shopping complex in Arcadia, Pretoria, noting that the interior was very similar to that of the GTI's.

The GT bearing the twincharger technology was first seen at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The 1.4 litre direct injection engine produces 125 kW and 240 Nm between 1 750 and 4 500 r/min thanks to its turbocharger and supercharger combination.

Volkswagen claims a top speed of 220 km/h with an acceleration from 0-100 km/h of 7.9 seconds.

The car's average fuel consumption is 7.2 litres/100 km.

VWSA recently told Wheels24 that there were no plans to introduce this model in the local market.
