The German brand has published a teaser for the new generation of the Golf hatchback in a more powerful version of the GTI. The official presentation of the high-performance new items will be held at the Geneva Motor Show, which will be held in March this year.

Volkswagen will show at the Geneva Motor Show this year not one, but two high-performance versions of its new generation Golf compact hatchback. Golf GTI will join the most powerful diesel version of the model, which is known under the GTD index. The car show will begin next month.

 Like the regular Golf, the more powerful GTI will receive the same technological “chips” that were included in the regular version of the eighth generation hatchback. For example, the Golf Travel Assist system, which will be able to control steering, braking and acceleration at speeds up to 210 km / h. The car will also use VW Car2X communication technology, which can exchange information with other nearby vehicles and roadside infrastructure.

    In the photos of the news, which were published last month on the social network Instagram, it was said that the new GTI will produce 242 horsepower. In the current version of the car, power is “only” 228 hp.

 Unfortunately, the teaser image released by VW shows nothing of what we have not yet seen. The presentation of the new generation Golf last year showed a subtle redesign of the car. The famous red GTI strip on the radiator grill will remain, while VW will also offer the optional illuminated radiator grill, which is visible in the teaser photo.

Not so long ago, we wrote that VW published a teaser for the high-performance Golf GTD. The press service of the German brand has published a teaser for the most powerful diesel version of the new generation Golf compact hatchback.
