Recreation of the Volkswagen up! GTI
The smallest model of Volkswagen you may also receive a version more spicy. There’s still nothing official, but the Volkswagen up! GTI could be on the agenda of the German mark. This new model would come to planting face to the Abarth 595, offering performance at an affordable price. The base would be the new up! In 2016, the facelift presented in the past Geneva, that will come soon to the dealers.
in Addition to the obvious aesthetic change, this renewal included the incorporation of the new turbo engine 1.0 three-cylinder. In the up! nomal develops a power of 90 HP and 160 Nm, but all indications are that for version GTI these figures will increase up to the 115 HP and 200 Nm of torque. Also would introduce the automatic transmission dual-clutch DSG. In theory it would be more than enough to move the small utility less than 1,000 kg.
It speaks of an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in about 8 seconds and a maximum speed of 200 km/h. Still would be somewhat below the newly renovated Abarth 595 now from 145 to 180 HP. With these modifications, the up! GTI would also have a chassis checked and a new suspension with a height-lowered and with a touch more hard and sports to improve their behavior.
of course, there would also be changes on the exterior, with quite specific equipment as wheels, 16-inch similar to the Golf GTI, flared wheel arches or double exhaust outlet chrome. The interior also benefits from the feature shifter and the upholstery style tartan. It will still wait for your confirmation, but in the case of a put, the Volkswagen up! GTI would have versions of three-and five-door.
