Volkswagen has revealed the new up! GTI at the Worthersee festival. With 115hp and a kerb weight of just 997kg, it’s promises a character to match the car that started the hot hatch craze: the iconic Mk1 Golf GTI. Here’s my top 10 reasons why you should be excited by the 2018 launch of this pocket rocket.

Would've loved to have this in South Africa.

8.8? The Honda HRV 1.8 CVT Does it in 8.9!

Jack Strood says:

Please review this car in person!

It definitely lives up to the name of Car of the People

Just saw this on the Grand Tour. I really like it, but 115hp is a bit lacking, even for it's small size. I wouldn't expect regular GTI power, but I would've preferred at least 140. 8.8 seconds is not anything-GTI territory. That's 10 year old 4cyl beige Camry grandpa car territory.

thor-egil Solvang says:

Make one of those competition and try this against the other matching class cars ?

Craig’s Bodybuilding says:

If this came with LED projector headlights, rear disc brakes and the option for a DSG gearbox id be pre ordering it now. I’d be willing to pay the extra for the options that would make the car look a lot more premium. It looks like a budget GTI using dated technology ?

SuperMariosCousin says:

You're all missing the point of the car. It's good looking, a sporty GTi and most importantly it'll be cheap to run and insure.
Any young driver in the UK will know how expensive car insurance is already ( a polo gti is in group 30 out of 50) this will no doubt be in an insurance group around 15-16.

Neo VeNoM says:

This car has one goal, sell towards people who have heard about "GTI" but know nothing about cars.

So, I wonder, will Ford come up with a sporty KA+ with a 1L 3Cyl. ecoboost? 140-150BHP?
Hell I would even consider building a late KA with an ecoboost engine.
But I already have a ST200. 🙂

Is it just me or do you just want one

h8tr13 says:

I want one. Don't care what anyone else thinks, I want one…

Josh Piceno says:

The front bumper looks like when you put an orange slice in your mouth and smile

Yoseob Yang says:

What? 150hp in an Up!? That's a hell of a sleeper!

jearss says:

Well I guess it's for a 20 something metrosexual male or female with a liberal arts degree who wanted something other than a smart car or prius. Can't really bash it it's only 15k

Tambo74 says:

I'd rather have a brand new Golf GTi MK1 over this all day long.. so the answer is no, it's no where near as good as the MK1 GTi

Josh Bacon says:

The up! GTI: Proof that you don't need 58 quintillion horsepower to have fun!

Alb in says:

i dont know why the fuck do car makers put halogen lights on cars it is 2017 led should've been standard since 2010

Joona Puro says:

Should have used 1.4 tsi
