Volkswagen is presenting a compact, sporty car very much in the spirit of the original GTI – the new up! GTI. The concept and power output of the 85 kW / 115 HP up! are broadly in line with the Golf GTI MkI presented in 1976 that had 81 kW / 110 HP. The near-production concept car pays tribute to this icon – with compact dimensions, a low weight, a powerful engine, sports running gear and the typical insignia of a GTI (including red stripes in the radiator grille, seat covers in “clark” tartan pattern). This sporty small car will certainly bring a new dimension of driving fun to the compact class. A typical GTI feature is the sophisticated sports running gear. It gives the car the agility akin to that of a go-kart, yet it also offers a high level of comfort. The production version of the up! GTI will be launched into the market in early 2018.

People moaning about who this kind of car will appeal to, to the young 19-20 yr olds like myself in the UK that get shafted if we try and insure a car like a ford fiesta ST so this car is very appealing and will hopefully be insurance friendly!

SpikeXtreme says:

To be honest,what is the point of the GTI ?.
The UP was designed as an economical city car ..all the technology in it pointed that way, and now VW release a petrol drinking 'fast off the lights' city Car..the total opposite of the intention of what the UP was designed for.

Charles BISACCIA says:

Too much power
for such a small car .
Eco cars are not designed
for high performances . ?

Benzinio says:

I don't thing it can justify the high price!

Mahmood Y.H says:

Why everyone is upset???
Just to make it clear… this car isn't made for performance… it's made for *FUN*.

Luther says:

a sports car with 115hp?

M H says:

Why more suped up shopping trollies. Women are not exactly aware drivers and men driving this is a bit homosexual.

it's ugly af

Ricky Ma says:

Yeah, so a GTI has 9+s 60mph acceleration, and below 200km/h top speed. GJ WV, you set the standard high.

W C says:

Jesus, that's the "European" way of making a sports car. Put in a tiny, under-powered engine, make the suspension unbearably hard and there you have it! A "sports car".
