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.

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that. Today, a decade later, he’s moved on to his
