Volkswagen Golf GTI concept to be revealed by October
After the unveiling of the 2009 Golf VI, Volkswagen announced that a new high performance GTI version will be revealed by late October. The new GTI should keep the current car’s well-judged balance of ride, handling and refinement, but there will be extra attention given to further improve steering and handling.
With design inspired by the new Scirocco, the GTI will be powered by a 211bhp turbocharged 2.0-liter version of the group’s new global EA888 engine, equipped with the new valve-lift system developed by Audi.
There will be a new bumpers front and rear, as well as different head and tail-lights. The headlights will have Audi-style LED running lights. Five-spoke 18in alloys will be standard, with 19in items on the options list.
A R32 version is also set to be unveiled.
