Because 0-180 is from Auto Motor und Sport and 0-200 is from Autozeitung. Which means Autozeitung just had a better launch or shifts, or road conditions / air pressure etc.

These performance figures for the Golf are truly weird. Look at the 130, 180, and 200 kph times for the Seat and the VW....At 180 the Golf is 1.7 seconds slower;then, in the acceleration on to 200,the Golf becomes .3 seconds faster!
