The Volkswagen Golf Variant family is about to grow as our spies have snapped pictures of the upcoming GTD wagon.

The Volkswagen Golf Variant family is about to grow as our spies have snapped pictures of the upcoming GTD wagon.

Caught leaving a parking lot, the Golf Variant GTD follows in the footsteps of the hatchback as it adopts an aggressive body kit, honeycomb grille inserts and tinted headlights. The model also has a sport-tuned suspension and five-spoke alloy wheels.

Our spies only got one interior photo but the GTD will likely be equipped with sport seats, a sport steering wheel and stainless steel pedals.

Power will be provided by a 2.0-liter TDI four-cylinder engine that produces 184 PS (135 kW) and 390 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds with the six-speed manual transmission, so expect the wagon variant to be a few ticks slower.
