New engines included the first Turbocharged Direct Injection (TD) diesel engine in a Golf, and a narrow-angle 2. 8-litre VR6 engine. US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel consumption estimates are 9. 0 L/100 km (31 mpg‑imp; 26 mpg‑US) (city) and 7. 4 L/100 km (38 mpg‑imp; 32 mpg‑US) (highway), with 420 km (261 mi) per tank (city) and 584 km (363 mi) per tank (highway). For the first time ever, a Golf estate (Golf Variant) joined the line-up in September 1993 (although most markets did not receive this model until early 1994). At the same time, a completely new Mk3-derived Cabriolet was introduced, replacing the 13-year-old Mk1-based version with one based on the Mk3 Golf platform from 1995 to early 1999. The Mk3 Golf Cabrio received a Mk4-style facelift in late 1999 and was continued until 2002.
