Brand new spy shots here of the upcoming VW Golf GTI VII. Can’t wait!
Compared to the regular Golf prototypes we caught earlier this year, the GTI is distinguished by the larger alloy wheels wrapped around beefier tires, the lowered body and the side skirts. The car seen here is the five-door model, but Volkswagen will also offer a three-door variant and possibly a convertible later on.
The Mk7 Golf’s styling is expected to evolve from the current Golf with the GTI featuring its usual signature styling traits such as a unique front grille with red accents, smoked lights and plaid seats.
The fact that it rides on the Volkswagen Group’s brand new MQB modular platform, which made its debut on the 2013 Audi A3 hatchback, means that the GTI will be lighter than the current model.
