A scan was published on the Internet with the presentation of “charged” versions of the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf hatchback. In total, five modifications of the hot hatch will be available with gasoline engines, as well as with a diesel engine and a hybrid power plant.

From the picture it follows that the base Volkswagen Golf GTI will receive a two-liter “turbo-four” with a capacity of 245 hp, while on a more extreme version of the GTI TCR, the engine’s output will increase to 300 horsepower. Modification of the Golf GTD will be offered with a 201-horsepower diesel engine, while the total return of the hybrid Golf GTE unit will be 245 forces.

Finally, the top-end Volkswagen Golf R will be equipped with a two-liter gasoline engine, issuing 333 hp, which is 23 hp more than a similar hot hatch of the previous generation. Dynamics data is not yet known. The former Golf R is capable of gaining the first 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, and its maximum speed with the optional Performance Pack is limited to 270 km per hour.

The public premiere of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI will take place in March at the Geneva Motor Show, while the top-end Golf R is expected to debut in July at the British Goodwood Festival of Speed.
