VW Golf GTI: 2013 US model will get performance boost

VW Golf GTI

The 2013 US model of the VW Golf GTI will get a performance boost.

Thankfully a new report is indicating the next-generation model will come with an upgraded engine that develops 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS). That’s not a huge increase, but it’s certainly a welcome improvement over the current 207 hp (155 kW / 210 PS). Furthermore, there’s word that both the GTI and R variants will adopt a new electronically-controlled locking differential for improved handling.
