2020 Will Be An Awesome Year For The Volkswagen Golf
In the Spring of 2020, the sportier GTI and GTD variants will be announced. We’ve spotted GTI prototypes out testing and we are anxious for its arrival in the US. This new model should produce more than the 220 horsepower found in the seventh-generation car, so expect an increase of anywhere from 10 to 20 hp. There is even talk of a 48-volt mild-hybrid system for the next-generation GTI. Dieselgate has completely ruined the image of diesel cars in the US, so there’s no way the Golf GTD will be sold in the US market.
Later in the Summer, VW will reveal a mild-hybrid Golf and plug-in hybrid Golf GTE. The Golf mild-hybrid will use a 1.0-liter engine while the GTE gets a larger 1.4-liter unit. The GTE will be sold in 201 hp and 242 hp guises, though we are not sure if either will be offered in the US as this model has never been offered stateside before.
