Volkswagen is coming out with model number seven of its stunning hatchback, the Golf GTI. CAR Magazine will release all of the information in the April 2012 issue. You will be able to get all the information up to a year before it is revealed at the Geneva 2013 auto show.
The artists have rendered an extraordinary picture of what the design may look like. It is evolutionary. It will be almost 30mm nearer to the ground than the current model today, and the wheelbase will be around 50 mm lengthier too, and there will be a lot more room for your legs and boots, and the maximum capacity is around 395 litres.
It will look definitely like a Golf. This model number seven will follow in the Mk5 and Mk6 look, and it will have clearer creases and lighting elements. There will also be some awesome telephone dial switches, spoilers, and red piping throughout the beautiful and stunning headlamps.
What is the engineering background on the VW Golf GTI?
The Golf GTI will be built on the MQB architecture, and it will be all real fresh. It will have the latest technology built into it, and you can learn more about the whole MQB platform by reading more about it here.
There will be a new 2.0-litre engine with four cylinders, and it will produce 217bhp and 251 ft. That’s a big boost in torque, and it will go easily from 1800-5200rpm.
The next Golf will be really fast too. It will go from 0-62mph in just 6.7 seconds, and it will have a top speed of 153mph, and CAR Magazine’s sources in Wolfsburg confirm this.
How will the new Golf GTI handle?
All signs look good now. The last couple of generations of the fast Golf car were excellently thought-out, and the new chassis have been created at a huge expense.
There will be a new slip differential instead of the electrical operation of the one today. There is also going to be a Bluemotion Golf GTI this time around, and it will have thinner tires, and it will have taller gearing too. The ECU will be recalibrated to cut down on emissions as well.
You can learn all about the 2013 Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk7 in the April issue of CAR Magazine, and you will be able to look at it alongside the Ford Focus ST and Vauxhall Astra VXR.
The hot hatchback could be making a huge comeback and really coming around the corner. This hot hatchback will have some of the same thrills as all the models before it. It will be one of the most tremendous re-inventions of the Golf to date. There are a lot of naysayers that are saying it won’t be much of a difference, that it will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary, but this is downright wrong. It will be one of the most beautiful hot hatchbacks to date.
