    MKVI GTI Pictures *OFFICIAL*

    Following the leaked images from earlier today, VW has released 16 fresh images and first details of the GTI Concept which debuts next week in Paris. Building on what was previous stated, the GTI Concept receives Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC). The ACC aids the already stiffened sport suspension with electronically controlled pneumatic dampeners which have three ride level settings ranging from ‘comfort’ to ‘normal’ and ‘sport’. Depending on the ACC setting and driving conditions, the ACC system also remaps the steering and throttle response for enhanced body control. Also, the new GTI concept features for the first time an electronic limited slip differential (XDS) which is linked to ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme).

    The GTI concept is powered by the 2.0-litre four cylinder TSI engine currently seen in the Scirocco producing 210 PS (207hp) – 10 PS more than the Mk V GTI. Despite the increase in power the new engine is still more efficient with 37.6 mpg (combined cycle) while emitting 178 g/km of CO2 compared to 189 g/km for the Mk V GTI. 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 7.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 148 mph making it the fastest standard production GTI yet.

    Finished in typical GTI interior traits, it receives a flat-bottomed lack leather steering wheel finished with red stitching and the sports seats sport the traditional grey tartan cloth reminiscent of the Mk I and Mk V models.

    The Golf GTI starts production in spring 2009.

    Does not need power seats. It's just something that will break. New Jetta doesn't have them either.

    Those seats = :wackit:

    Actually the GTi is the most reliable VW car (the Tourareg is not a car). That said, the Mk5.5 definitely looks worse than the Mk5.

    I wonder if I can get one with my Scottish family tartan instead of that generic plaid? That would be kinda cool.

    The front isn't too bad. The interior seems to look slightly improved. The rear looks better than the MK5 rear IMO.

    i don't understand the hate, i really like it

    and i absolutely love that interior

    i've never owned a VW, so i'm not sure if their as unreliable as people make out. The GTi is still quite a slab of money here, 40 grand.

    So VW GTi, or spend 5k more on a Xr6 Turbo, hmm

    interior looks fucking amazing for the price/class

    i believe this will be a 2010 model when it hits europe and the US (ie it should go on sale here in the US next fall), which coincides with my graduation and when i will be looking to buy a new car; i'm gonna be really torn between an mk5 gti vs this. i would LOVE to get the new one, but it will surely cost ~3000 more in the end, plus i'm sceptical about first year models of new gens
     
  18. Looks identical to the MkV. MkVI will not look like this IMO.
