Introducing the seventh generation of the Volkswagen Golf GTI, which was unveiled today in final production trim. The new sports hatch gets all the usual styling trinkets we’ve come to expect from GTI models, like the red accent line on the grille, which now extends into the headlamps, honeycomb grille inserts, smoked (LED) tail lamps, a rear spoiler, twin pipes, side sills, a diffuser and different set of 17-inch alloy wheels shod in 225/45 size tires.
It also gets a newer 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injection four-cylinder unit that’s offered in two power levels, 217hp (220PS) for the base model and 227hp (230PS) for the GTI Performance version.
Available transmission options include a standard 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic.
In Germany, advance ordering for the new Golf GTI Mk7 will begin on March 5th, the same day that the car will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, with prices starting at €28,350 or about $37,000 USD. For more details please visit CarScoop.
