Well. Some news has come through about the up Gti. It is not expected until early 2018! But anyway here is the article about it (advertised on multiple sites)

 

http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/volkswagen/first-drives/2018-vw-gti-prototype-review

 

A few things that do concern me are

 

1. Is it 3 or 5 door. As in they only make in 5 door? I know the new polo is 5 door only :S

2. The front end. What is going on here?

3. 0-60 is slower than the lupo gti. I don't think this is a step forward...

4. The wheels look a bit too big. I can only imagine on British roads the ride will be. Hard? Although I have got a plan for this.

why bring a gti version out seven years after the debut?

I'm sceptical of this.

It's not like other manufacturers have done the same. Ford did

Ahhh I was interested in this, but that seems really disappointing, especially if it does turn out to be 5 door only.

113bhp though, I'd have expected more...

technically more than the Golf GTI in its first incarnation but poor compared to the extra weight it has to lug around, wouldn't you rather have a mapped Lupo TDi

210 bhp, 184 ft lb, 4 wheel drive the best Golf ever or at least until the R models

About time they put a TSI engine in the up!!

It's good news, but a bit of a disapointment with just 115bhp imo
