The seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf GTI will arrive on our shores on Thursday, June 11 2013. Wheels24 editor LES STEPHENSON will attend the launch, so check back with us for our full report and driving impressions.Image galleryAhead of the official launch, we thought we’d get petrol heads salivating with key details on the upcoming hot hatch.HOT HATCH SNEAK PEEKThe model is powered by a 2.0 turbocharged engine delivering 162kW/350Nm. The turbocharged engine is created from the third generation of VW’s EA888 engine series.Wheels24 reader MARCEL WELMAN says he is in no rush to sell his MK VI GTI:“So disappointing, yet again it’s the slowest hot hatch around. The GTI will not compete with the current hot hatches in its segment... VW can only talk about the 'total package' for so long. People like me that purchase this type of car, want performance with a good overall package. First and foremost, lest we forget, it’s supposed to be a hot hatch. The GTI’s styling is also becoming too homogenous (e.g VW Polo) and not aspirational enough for me. I'm not going rush to sell my MK VI GTI based on what I’ve seen, especially since I have a Revo chip installed.”Email us your thoughts on VW's next Golf GTI and we'll publish your views on Wheels24.
