Since going on sale in Europe in 2008, many a jealous Australian has been holding out hope that Volkswagen Australia would eventually bring the handsome hatchback to local showrooms.

Some rumours have even suggested the model was virtually months away from the dealership floor. Alas, it appears it's not to be.

We asked Volkswagen whether the racy three-door would be coming our way, and the answer was a solid "no". While it would no doubt get a lot of interest from hot-hatch fans, Volkswagen Group Australia spokesman Karl Gehling says it would clash with the rest of VW's local range and cost too much.

"We like the car but cannot bring it here," Mr Gehling said.

"We are still looking at it but have no plans to release it in Australia."

2009 Volkswagen Golf GTD

It's a bit of a downer, but the VW hot-hatch story certainly doesn't end with the Scirocco. The new Golf VI GTI is due to go on sale here later this year, and Volkswagen Australia is also considering the diesel-drinking Golf GTD (above).

It's still too early to say whether we will or won't get the GTD variant, but those seeking FWD thrills should be adequately served by the GTI regardless.
