The 2014 VW Golf GTI Officially Revealed


Volkswagen will debut the new Mk7 Golf GTI at the Geneva Motor Show next week. As a preview, VW released these photos and details. The styling follows nearly identical from the concept model and GTD. This new GTI built on the new MQB chassis shaves off 93 lbs and comes with an evolutionary designed exterior and interior.
The updated 2.0L four-cylinder turbo now comes with more power in two forms. Standard will have 220hp, and a new Performance version with 230hp. Both transmissions (6-speed manual and DSG) will be available using a new front axle differential lock. 0-62mph takes only 6.4 seconds from the previous (mK6) 6.9 seconds, and top speed is up to 155mph from 149mph.
It will be open for order starting on the shows reveal date (March 5th). Pricing starts at €28,350 in Germany ($37,000 US).
