How very curious, there are literally no familiar European/USA/Australasian/South African GTI cues inside or out.
That just begs so many questions as to why VW even marketed it as a GTI in Japan.

A fantastic and unique car for sure in its own little niche.
Hopefully it’ll live a long and pampered life in your care.

You can always rely on the Japanese market to add a curveball to what we know.

I like it, and look forward to seeing more of/about it.

That is certainly not a GTI. It is a normal 2.0tsi estate that someone had stuck some GTI badges to.
There is simply no such thing as a GTI estate in any market. Look closely... missing GTI interior, rear exhausts, wheels, bumpers, wrong ride height, wrong steering wheel and chrome around windows. All incorrect.... Hope you didn't pay a GTI price!

Does however look a nice car in great condition :)
