2015 Geneva Motor Show: Volkswagen Golf GTD Variant image

Volkswagen has made the public debut of the Golf GTD Variant at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, after it has been unveiled online in late January.

The brand new Volkswagen Golf GTD Variant has been officially introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. This is the newest addition to the Golf family and it is taking its name from Gran Turismo Diesel, being a derivative of the Variant (wagon), following the same footsteps as the Golf GTD hatchback. The vehicle has received chrome exhaust tips, black roof rails, smoked taillights, bi-xenon headlights, a 15 mm lowered sports suspension system, 17-inch standard wheels and several other goodies. The model is also getting illuminated door sills, stainless steel pedals and a golf ball styled gear knob, amongst others.

The Volkswagen Golf GTD Variant can also be equipped with the Sports and Design package, adding the red brake calipers, the larger 18-inch alloy wheels, the driving mode selection and the tinted windows. Under its hood, we can find the same 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine, which is also used on its hatchback brother. This is capable of putting down 184 HP (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the wagon to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 7.9 seconds. The average fuel consumption stands at 4.4 L / 100 km (64 mpg UK / 53.4 mpg US). Deliveries of the model will begin over the next few months.
