Next-gen VW Golf GTI to get 260 BHP

The future generation of the Volkswagen Golf GTI will get an impressive 260 BHP from the 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol engine.

According to the guys at autocar.co.uk, the future generation of the Volkswagen Golf GTI will be lighter than the current one and the model will even drive around the Nurburgring faster than the current GTI even if the model won’t have any extra power. The Volkswagen Golf VII GTI will be more powerful than the current one and the model will get a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which will generate a total output of 260 BHP, which is less than one of its main rivals, the Opel Astra OPC, with its 280 horsepower.

While the new Opel Astra OPC has 280 horsepower and front-wheel drive, the upcoming Volkswagen Golf GTI is expected to be more fun to drive and faster around the corners thanks to the 4MOTION all-wheel drive technology which will be fitted onto it. The Volkswagen Golf MK7 GTI will be the second model based on the company’s new MQB architecture, after the new Audi A3, and the model will be officially presented to the public during the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September, before hitting the market early next year. More details on the future Golf GTI will be announced in autumn, during the French automotive event.

    This can't be close to the truth…so what people are saying is that the GTI will have 260 bhp and have an all wheel drive system? So…it's a Golf R is essentially what it is….and people are expecting these features to be around the same price as the GTI? Won't believe it until I see it.
