As we see, new Golf GTI remained one of the most reserved hot hatchbacks on style, though differences from the base Golf 7 presented at the beginning of september, here much. Are evident both a new bumper, and a traditional red strip on a front grille, and red supports of brakes.

Compared to the previous generation 2-liter engine was slightly more powerful: 220 h.p vs 210 h.p, and also expected 230 h.p version. However, according to this indicator, many competitors have already gone a long way. However, there is evidence that the Germans could still surprise us on the technical side.

According to some reports, Golf GTI can find clutch Haldex. No, it will not be all-wheel drive, although this nod we used to see a crossover with transmission 4x4. In the case of golf multi-plate clutch will serve as the self-locking differential. Argues that such a radical modification of the hatchback shows the best time on the track compared to the conventional models with limited slip differential.
