Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI Teased

Golf GTI Teaser

Volkswagen has released a teaser image of its soon-to-be-released Golf 8 GTI. 

Set for its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2020, the Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI is a highly-anticipated model. Volkswagen is claiming this new model will be a 'pure, intelligent and superior high-tech sports car for the digital age.'

We're quite excited by this teaser image as it shows the new Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI will feature a bold face comprising a light bar as well as smart LED foglights. 

As for the outputs, a leaked document showed there'll be substantial power upgrades. The Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI will boast 180 kW from a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder motor. Power goes to the front wheels via either the acclaimed DSG or a manual gearbox. Our love for the fast-shifting dual-clutch transmission means, it's highly unlikely we'll get the manual 'box. 

The Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI will reach South Africa in the fourth quarter of 2020.
