BMW 320d vs Golf 2.0 TDI GTI

OK, looking to buy a used car and seem settled on these 2.

Main criteria, enjoyable to drive, comfort, economy, interior and which has the better engine.

Needs to be a 4 door and I get good milage rate with work so economy is essential

Already ruled out the Golf GTD.

Thanks

I’m not sure there is a 2.0 TDI GTI – the diesel version of the Golf GTI is the GTD.

Thanks Alan, Cargiant think otherwise, OK, let's say 2.0 TDI GT 148bhp

Alan is right chum, that's the GT TDI as opposed to a Gti. I had one, it'll be badged as a gt.

They're a great car. What year of cars are you looking at?

15 plate 320d driven with a certain respect will do nearly 70mpg on the motorway.

Any car can be made to get rubbish mpg and BMW is no different when you stamp on the loud pedal.

I don't know if it has been changed but I chose a BM over the Golf as at the time the back seats do not fold down flat and that is important to me.

It'll be a mk7 golf vs an f30 3 series.

I have a 2016 f30 and it's a great car. In saying that, I'd also be more than happy with a mk7 golf GT. There is a beautiful red one passes our house a few times a week, and I really love the look of it.

I'd actually be happy with either tbh. Nice choice to have tbh lol.
