    Next generation MKVII Volkswagen Golf GTI is getting a 260 horsepower 2.0 turbo four - Spy photos

    Autocar reports the next generation MK7 Golf GTI is getting a boost to 260 horsepower putting it on par with the Golf R and topping the GTI Edition 35. The next generation GTI will also be getting a drop in weight thanks to use of aluminum. In order to put this amount of power down through a front wheel drive drivetrain Volkswagen is giving it a new VAQ differential which employs and electronically controlled Haldex clutch.

    Where does this leave the next generation Golf R? Well, it will likely have to be over the 300 horsepower mark and rumor has it that carbon fiber will be employed in the roof.

    The MK7 Golf should be available for purchase next year.

    Golf in the fall maybe ...we probably won't see the GTI until 6 months after Europe does though, so probably not until 2014 for our version.

    I don't see why they don't. They might need to in order for it to be far enough ahead of this.
