2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Could Look Like This

Now that the new Volkswagen Golf has been unveiled, it’s time to turn our attention to the performance variants of one of the industry’s most recognized compact cars. 

The new Volkswagen Golf unveiled last week will eventually serve as the starting point for a new generation of performance Volkswagen Golfs, namely the 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI. There are many variants of the Golf that are in question right now, namely the Golf Alltrack and Sportwagen which may not make it to a new generation, but the GTI’s future is all but guaranteed.

When it will arrive, however, is somewhat of a mystery. 2021 would make a lot of sense, but nothing is confirmed. As for what it will look like, our guess is as good as yours. That said, X-Tomi Design has an idea and as one does, he rendered the 2021 VW Golf GTI using the 8th generation of the Golf as a starting point. The results are encouraging.

5 Questions About the 8th Generation 2020 Volkswagen Golf Answered

Volkswagen is known for its conservatism and the recent Golf is more proof. You can tell its different, but it’s not that different. The GTI is slightly sportier-looking on current Golf generations, but it doesn’t go overboard. The next-generation Volkswagen GTI should be no different and will likely look very much like X-Tomi Design’s rendering.

As for power, the current Volkswagen Golf GTI is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 228 horsepower. Expect a slight bump in power, but probably not much more than 235 or 240 horsepower.

As for the Volkswagen Golf, it will likely arrive in Canada sometime in 2021 which means our new GTI will hit the market in 2022.
