Designers released renders of the eighth generation of the German hatchback in the “charged” version of the GTI, created on the basis of spy shots.

At the end of November this year, photo spies captured the next-generation Volkswagen Golf GTI, mostly in an undisguised form, after a series of previous shots from tests of a masked prototype. Camouflage news still hides a number of significant elements that distinguish the usual Golf from the “charged” performance. Independent designers took spy shots as the basis and presented the new Golf GTI in all its details.

Artists present a car with a more aggressive front bumper, in which two C-shaped diffusers direct air to the massive lower grille. In addition, a thin red stripe connects the LED headlights, and the GTI logo is asymmetrically located on the passenger side.

The most obvious external upgrade is a set of 19-inch all-black wheels that hide Brembo brake calipers and are wrapped in Continental tires. Black side mirror covers, wide side skirts and GTI badges on the front wings complete the visual enhancements.

It has been confirmed that the new GTI will not receive a hybrid powerplant, at least for now, and will continue to rely on a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. According to preliminary information, the EA888 block, which is also offered in the current Mk VII Golf GTI, will have two forcing options – 255 hp. and 295 hp No changes in the transmissions are also planned – the two available options will be a standard 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed automatic with double clutch.
