2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI 300HP Review
Based on what we realize up to now about VW’s next-generation warm hatch, the MK8 Golf is a lot more of evolution instead of a revolution when compared to the existing model. The 2020 Golf GTI will still be powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, deliver power to the front wheels, and either be mated to a new eight-speed dual-clutch or six-speed manual transmission.
VW’s ubiquitous EA888 four-cylinder engine in the MK7.5 Golf GTI creates a reputable 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. But in the forthcoming GTI, the engine is expected to produce 245 hp, which is a healthy acquire over the current model. For Golf lovers who are craving even more power from their GTI, they could choose for the performance package which bumps the power output to 300 hp, an apparent obtain over the present Golf R’s 288 horsepower. Without any difficult data from VW to back the promises produced by Autobild in regards to the hatchback’s power output, we are unable to possibly verify neither reject these statistics.
However, offered how the warm hatch market has changed over the last couple of years with the intro of the 305-hp Honda Civic Type R, the 275-hp Hyundai Veloster N with performance package, and the forthcoming Subaru WRX STI S209, it would seem sensible for Volkswagen to offer the next-generation Golf GTI with a whole lot more power than existing version.
