2013 VW Golf GTI Study Officially Revealed in Paris, European Sales Begin Next Summer - Who square measure we have a tendency to kidding; it's going to be beaked as an inspiration, however even VW doesn’t build abundant effort into concealment the very fact that the "design study" that created its debut aboard the remainder of the seventh-generation Golf models at the 2012 Paris automobile Show is really the assembly version of the Mk7 Golf GTI .
The German car manufacturer even discharged a launch date: the new Golf GTI in each three- and five-door body designs can prolong sale in ground Europe in early 2013 and within the GB next summer (no word however on once it'll arrive in North America).

The new GTI stands out from lesser versions of the Golf because of its honeycomb grille (first introduced within the Mk5) with double red-stipe accents, the smoke-dried crystal rectifier taillights and vehicle plate illumination, the red brake calipers behind the five-spoke alloy wheels and also the eighty millimeter diameter tailpipes with a chrome end.

Traditional GTI themes, like the golf orbicular gearstick, the material textile upholstery and also the flat-bottomed sports handwheel make sure that this can be a production-ready automotive.

Like all Mk7 Golfs, the GTI rides on VW’s all-new MQB platform. It gets a variable-ratio steering mechanism, that in theory a minimum of, makes driving easier at low speeds whereas providing the mandatory feedback once the driving force is pressing on.

The big news is that the GTI’s new a pair of.0-liter four-cylinder, direct injection turbocharged engine, not solely is a lot of powerful that its precursor, however it'll even be offered in 2 outputs, with consumers having the selection of 2 six-speed gearboxes, a typical manual ANd an optional  dual-clutch DSG.

In customary specification, output is 220PS (217HP) and most force 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) – seventy Nm (52 lb-ft) quite the previous model and up to the Mk6 Golf R. The 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint takes half dozen.6 seconds and high speed is 246 km/h (153 mph).

Thus, it fulfills not solely current emission rules however conjointly the stricter EU-6 standards which will inherit impact in 2014.

For the primary time ever, VW offers a factory-prepared “performance pack”. Those expecting Brobdingnagian power gains are going to be disappointed: output is enhanced by simply 10PS (10HP), the zero-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time drops by a mere 0.1 seconds to six.5" and high speed is barely higher at 250 km/h (155 mph).

In fact, the “performance pack” looks like a misnomer; job it the “handling pack” would in all probability be a lot of fitting. that is as a result of, despite the modest increase in performance figures, it conjointly includes a differential lock that reduces power understeer and bigger diameter front discs.
