2018 Volkswagen Up GTI officially revealed

2017 Volkswagen Up! GTI officially 2This is the Up! GTI and it is essentially the return of the original hot hatch. That means we have a lightweight hatch with a 113 hp turbo three-cylinder engine, a revised suspension, more downforce (because it definitely needs downforce?), and a price that would be around $20,000 if it were for sale in the USA.

VW says the near-production concept car pays tribute to the original GTI with compact dimensions, a low weight, a powerful engine, sports running gear and the typical insignia of a GTI (including red stripes in the radiator grille, seat covers in “clark” tartan pattern).

Inside, there is a unique “red pixel” trim within the dashboard, plaid check fabric upholstered front seats, a black roof liner, a multi-function flat bottom steering wheel with red stitching along with number of unique touches, including GTi insignias within the sill panels, a black leather bound handbrake lever and GTi identification within the gear knob, albeit without the classic golf ball optic of the original.

The hottest Up’s styling package pays its GTI dues with red stripes in the grille (now finished in a honeycomb pattern) as well as double stripes across the sill panels and tartan seat cloth. There’s no golf ball gear lever, but then this isn’t a Golf! Other show-off bits include 17-inch alloy wheels and gloss-black mirror caps. 2017 Volkswagen Up GTI officially
