A few days ago, Volkswagen officially announced the official map of the new generation of Golf GTI Clubsport. As a high-performance version of the Golf GTI model, the new car has undergone a comprehensive upgrade.
The most important upgrade is to provide a DCC dynamic adaptive chassis based on the addition of a front axle limited slip differential, which will improve the handling of the new car, thereby making up for the understeer that is prone to front-wheel drive models.
In terms of power, the new car continues to be equipped with a 2.0TSI four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 300 horsepower and a peak torque of 400 N·m, which is 55Ps more of the maximum horsepower and 30N·m of peak torque than the standard Golf GTI. The matching transmission system is a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox with an acceleration time of 0-100km/h in less than 6s. Transmission will only provide 7-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox. It is reported that the new car also provides a brand-new Special driving mode, specially developed for the Nurburgring North Circuit.
The Golf GTI Clubsport has been slightly upgraded on the basis of the current Golf GTI. It adopts a new front surround design and the application of the classic honeycomb mesh grille, which further enhances the sports look of the new car.
The rear is upgraded with a new fixed roof spoiler and rear surround, which further highlights the sportiness. The brand new two-tone 18-inch double five-spoke wheels, with red GTI brake calipers, the visual effect is more impactful. The height of the suspension is reduced by 15mm compared with the normal version of GTI after tuning.
In the interior, the new car is mainly optimized for color matching, further highlighting the red performance theme, standard ArtVelours fabric interior, and optional leather bag.
Volkswagen engineers improved the engine, brakes, suspension and steering system of the Golf GTI to create this exciting car. The director believes that the purpose is to fight against Megana RS and Civic Type-R, a high-performance small steel gun that is biased towards the track. However, this high-performance version of the front-drive small steel gun is likely not to be introduced into the country. Even the fate of the big brother Golf R is unknown. It is very likely that the Chinese market will miss these extremely fun legendary steel guns.
