Volkswagen is to unveil its first ever Golf GTD estate at the Geneva motor show in March, offering 184hp and official fuel economy of 64.2mpg.
The model, powered by a 2.0 TDI engine, will also accelerate from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds.
The car’s sporty character is reflected in its exterior design: along with special GTD bumpers and the honeycomb radiator grille, the Golf GTD Estate also features smoked rear lights and flared sills.
It also features 17-inch Curitiba alloys, black roof rails and dual chrome tailpipes.
Also standard are bi-xenon headlights, sports suspension with ride height lowered by 15mm, and progressive steering, which gives a sharper response during high-performance driving as well as ensuring greater comfort in ordinary conditions.
The interior features sports seats in tartan, illuminated door sills, black headliner and black pillar trims.
There are also numerous decorative inserts and panels in Checkered Black, plus stainless steel pedal caps.
Further refinements include the multifunction steering wheel with aluminium trim and the gear knob styled as a golf ball.
The Golf GTD Estate is expected to go on sale in the UK in April, with first deliveries in June.
UK pricing and specification will be confirmed closer to launch.
