The new Volkswagen Golf GTI: first image

Volkswagen is going to show in Geneva two sample “hot” Golf with petrol and diesel engines. Published the first official image of the upcoming Golf GTI the eighth generation. And it is strangely reminiscent of the teaser, it has been shown earlier – the one that announced the premiere of the diesel Golf GTD.

If you compare both images, it turns out that by and large petrol hatch is different from piatigorski “heavy fuel” only two nuances – the GTI is the GTD nameplate next to the headlight and the traditional red stripe that connects the elements in head optics.

In Volkswagen’s carefully kept secret the data on the technical characteristics of the future Prime Minister, but due to the relatively recent leak, we already know that, for example, the Golf GTD will receive a two-liter unit increased slightly compared with the previous modifications of power – as expected, his return will bring to 200 HP

But Golf GTI can be weaker than expected according to preliminary data, his engine will develop “only” 245 HP However, later on, appears more severe versions – a 300-horsepower Golf TCR and the hot Golf R with the engine developing at least 333 HP with the prospect of a boost to 400 HP

Most likely, the missing details Volkswagen will officially reveal only March 3: two new Golf will debut during the traditional “night of the Volkswagen” prior to the start of the Geneva motor show.
