Volkswagen Golf GTD Estate Heads to Geneva

Wagon uses same 2.0L diesel 4-cylinder as GTD

Volkswagen will debut its first ever Golf GTD Estate at the Geneva Auto Show in March. The station wagon carries the same 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder engine as the traditional GTD.

What sets the Golf GTD Estate apart is its original design. Along with its long body, the car sports unique GTD bumpers, a honeycomb radiator grille, smoked rear lights, and flared sills. Bi-xenon headlights, black roof rails, dual chrome tailpipes, and 17-inch Curitiba alloy wheels add just enough attitude to set it apart from the rest of the Golf clan.

Inside, look for illuminated door sills, sports seats in Clark tartan, and black trim for the headliner and pillars. These details complement stainless steel pedal caps, a multifunction steering wheel with aluminum trim, and a gear knob in the shape of a golf ball. Options include Alcantara or Vienna leather seat covers as well as a Sports and Design package with driving mode selection, red brake calipers, tinted windows, and upgraded 18-inch alloys.

The Golf GTD Estate delivers 181 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque from its 2.0-liter turbodiesel TDI engine, allowing it to hit 62 mph in just 7.9 seconds, according to Volkswagen. To enhance performance, Volkswagen also threw in a sports suspension with a 15-mm lower ride height as well as progressive steering that gives the car sharper responses during high-performance driving.

Just like the Golf R Wagon, it doesn't look like there are any immediate plans for the model to arrive in the U.S., but it will go on sale in the U.K. in April. More details on pricing and specs will be announced closer to the launch date.
