VW Golf GTI/R
NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2021
When the heavily re-engineered, eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf arrives in the U.S. next year, just two versions of the long-running sporty hatchback will be available: the GTI and the high-performance Golf R. The entry-level Golf — a staple in VW's U.S. lineup for decades — isn't scheduled to be offered in the United States at launch and may not come here at all. The latest GTI will sport a mildly retuned version of the current car's turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine. The motor is now rated at 241 hp, up 13 hp over the 2020 GTI. Two transmissions will be available: a six-speed manual and the optional seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic.
