Since 1982, Volkswagen’s GTD logo has stood for Gran Turismo Diesel with its promise of sporty yet economical motoring.

Now for the first time, the GTD initials grace the Golf Estate, which like the Golf GTD, boasts the 184 hp engine.

The new model is set to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The Golf GTD Estate is well placed to establish itself as an iconic long-distance cruiser.

The 184 hp TDI engine takes the Golf GTD Estate to 62 mph in just 7.9 seconds with the 2.0-litre unit and yet this sporty Estate car boasts a combined fuel consumption figure of 64.2 mpg.

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.

The look is completed by 17-inch Curitiba alloys, black roof rails and dual chrome tailpipes. Also standard on-board the Golf GTD Estate are bi-xenon headlights, sports suspension with ride height lowered by 15 mm, and progressive steering, which gives a sharper response during high-performance driving as well as ensuring greater comfort in ordinary conditions.
