The next generation VW Golf MK8 is set up to be released in the UK in early 2018 however buyers searching for a stylish GTI model may have to wait up until 2019. This upcoming hot hatch will probably use a brand-new 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine improved by an electrical motor– similar to a Mclaren P1.
The brand-new Mk8 model will doubtless feature a number of ageless GTI style features– it’ll certainly look more muscular appearance than the basic car thanks to red trim pieces, sporty wheels, a brand-new spoiler and chunky twin exhaust pointers. There aren’t any strategies to restore the GTI Cabriolet model, nevertheless, so you’ll have to be satisfied with the more practical five-door version. Its interior will be handsomely selected with lots of package– a large infotainment system with sat nav, numerous chauffeur help features and lots of unique GTI trim pieces including chequered cloth seats must all come fitted as requirement.
The upcoming 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI should produce more power than the present top specification 261hp Clubsport model. Range-topping scandal sheets could drain as much as 325hp– that’s more than the present Golf R. This power-hike will come thanks to the addition of a little electric motor and an effective 48V battery. As requirement, the GTI will feature a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission– sadly, it’s unknowned whether the next-generation car will be readily available with a manual gearbox.
It’s safe to say that the brand-new 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI engine will not just be more powerful but should also more fuel-efficient than the current model, too. Light-weight products and an upgraded chassis will help both efficiency and fuel economy.
The Golf’s eighth generation is anticipated to go on sale early 2018. Expect the Golf GTI to go on sale quickly after in 2019. Entry-level GTI models could cost from approximately ₤ 28,000 while range-topping Clubsport editions could leave you with a costs for more than ₤ 30,000.
