The premiere of the Volkswagen Golf GTI of the eighth generation will be held in early March at the Geneva Motor Show. There will be four “hot” versions in the range of the new Golf
Bend your fingers, in addition to the gasoline GTI and the rechargeable GTE hybrid, the diesel GTD and the top version of R will see the light. Interestingly, according to Autocar, the Golf R will premiere in July at the British Goodwood Festival of Speed, while the diesel hot hatch will be shown a little earlier. The external differences of the sports versions will come down to a different design of the exhaust system, the installation of more productive brakes and a special aerodynamic body kit.
Little is known about the technical stuffing of the “warmed up” versions: British media believe that the Golf GTI will retain the EA888 2.0-liter gas turbo engine, but after the upgrade, the standard version will be about 245 horsepower. As for the diesel version of the GTD, such a Golf can be electrified and will acquire a 48-volt starter-generator. As part of the power plant, a 2.0-liter turbodiesel from a hatchback of the previous generation will remain, but its return will increase from the current 184 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque.
