VW Golf GTI: Next generation coming with 260 bhp

VW Golf GTI

The next-generation VW Golf GTI is said to receive 260bhp. Great!

Autocar now says the 2.0-liter turbo four in Volkswagen’s next hot hatch will make all of 260 horsepower, but perhaps more importantly, the front differential will get some new technology to keep all that power from just turning into tire smoke.

The so-called VAQ limited-slip would use an electronically controlled Haldex clutch, bringing all-wheel-drive technology to the front-drive GTI, according to the report.
