64.2mpg VW Golf GTD Estate to debut at Geneva
Like the Golf GTD, the estate features the 181bhp 2.0-litre TDI engine, giving a 0 to 62mph time of 7.9 seconds along with a combined fuel consumption figure of 64.2mpg.
The GTD will be marked out with special GTD bumpers and a honeycomb radiator grille, along with smoked rear lights, flared sills, 17-inch alloys, black roof rails and dual chrome tailpipes. Also standard 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.
Inside, the model features sports seats in Clark tartan, illuminated door sills, black headliner and black pillar trims. Added to this, there are 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.
Optional extras include a Sports and Design package featuring driving mode selection, Nogaro 18-inch alloy wheels, red brake callipers and tinted windows.
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.
