Volkswagen to reveal long-awaited Up GTI at Worthersee
19 May, 2017, 14:44
Aesthetically, Volkswagen has delivered typically restrained styling, but with just enough GTI cues to justify the badge. 41 years on from the original, Volkswagen's keen to conjure up the spirit of the past, with a sporty, nimble vehicle that puts fun over fast.
Yes, it's got Volkswagen's most hallowed hot hatch badge upon its snout, alongside all of the GTI hallmarks, with a red-striped grille and tartan seats inside. Due to reach showrooms early next year, here is hoping that the Up can transcend some of the magic of the mk1 Golf GTI.
The Volkswagen Up! GTi has been revealed as VW's new hot little city auto, complete with a lively 113bhp three-cylinder turbo petrol engine. Anxious that's not enough?
For comparison's sake, the original Golf GTI was powered by an 81kW/140Nm 1.6-litre normally aspirated four and could get to 100km/h in nine seconds flat. All similar figures to the original Golf GTI, VW is keen to point out.
There's a 15mm suspension drop and some general tinkering underneath to sharpen it up, but it's already an uncommonly good auto to drive as standard.
The concept will make its debut at the massive GTI Meet in Wörthersee, Austria next week, where we'll be taking a closer look. A move helped by its three-door layout, something increasingly rare in the hot hatch sector.
VW also promises sportier running gear, without going into detail on this aspect, but at the very least we'd expect lower and stiffer suspension and perhaps even sharper steering and beefed up brakes. Whether it's a true great will all hinge on its price; if VW can make it £15,000 or below, then this could be a proper bargain hero in the Suzuki Swift Sport and (previous gen) Renault Sport Twingo mould.
The Volkswagen Up! GTi will go on sale in early 2018 and be available as a three-door and five-door model. Reckon it's a victor?
