Hey there folks, welcome to the auto universe,
we’ll start of today’s news with spy shots of the all new mk8 volkswagen golf gti going
around the racetrack, but before we get into the news, make sure you hit that like and

get right into the news We’ve already seen the eighth-generation Volkswagen
Golf with almost no camo at all, but the next-gen GTI, a perennial favorite of ours, has been
somewhat of a mystery. Our spy photographers have now gotten the first photos of the GTI,
giving us a good look at the performance version of the new Golf. Like the standard car, the
GTI is getting an evolutionary redesign that doesn’t take many risks. Despite the camouflage wrap, we can see that
the new GTI has a much racier look than the regular Mark 8 Golf. At the front there’s
a larger lower grille with a honeycomb pattern, integrated fog lights, and a lower splitter,
and the upper grille should get the GTI’s ubiquitous red stripe. We can also see deeper
side skirts, wheels nabbed from the Mark 7 Rabbit Edition, a bigger rear spoiler, and
a new diffuser with dual exhaust tips. As before, expect power to come from Volkswagen’s
tried and true 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four. In the U.S., the current GTI makes 228
horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, but more powerful variants like the TCR and Clubsport
are sold in Europe. We’re hoping for close to 300 horsepower in the new car, with the
next-gen Golf R making substantially more. Power should still be sent to the front wheels
through either a manual or dual-clutch transmission. We just hope VW carries on with the tartan
pattern on its cloth seats. The standard Golf will be revealed in a few
months, with the GTI following soon after. Recently, a report came out saying the GTI
would be the lowest-end version of the Mark 8 Golf that will be sold in the U.S., meaning
no base Golf—that was slightly debunked by a VW spokesperson, but it could still be
true. We think that if the Mark 8 GTI does become the entry-level Golf, its cost could
come down a bit from the 2019 model’s $28,490 base price.
