VW Golf GTI/R
NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2021
The eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf arrives in the U.S. in the fourth quarter, but only in the form of the higher-end GTI and R. The redesigned GTI sports a retuned version of the current car's turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine. Two transmissions are available: a six-speed manual and an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2025
The GTI and R would be due for a midcycle freshening in 2025, under the brand's traditional product cadence.
