Autocar brings word we should expect the next-generation GTI, or at least a near production-ready concept, at the Paris Motor Show next month. The info was tucked away at the end of their article on the new Golf VII:
“At the Paris motor show on 27 September, Volkswagen plans to preview the new Golf GTI. It receives a new 222bhp version of the Audi developed EA888 turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder direct injection petrol engine.”
You’ll note today’s guess on power is 222bhp, or around 165kW. That figure has been around since speculation on the Golf VII GTI began. However, we’ve also had suggestions as high as 195kW, which remain dubious about.
Looks like we won’t have to wait long to find out.
