Could a Volkswagen up! GTI to rival the Abarth 595

Volkswagen up! GTI

Recreation of the Volkswagen up! GTI

The smaller model from Volkswagen could also receive a spicier version. There is nothing official, but the Volkswagen up! GTI could be on the agenda of the German mark. This new model would arrive to stand up to the Abarth 595, offering performance at an affordable price. The base would be the new up! 2016, face washing presented last Geneva Motor Show, coming soon to showrooms.

In addition to the obvious aesthetic change, this renovation included the addition of the new three-cylinder 1.0 turbo engine. In the up! Nomal develops an output of 90 HP and 160 Nm, but everything suggests that these figures will rise to 115 HP and 200 Nm of torque for the GTI version. It would also introduce DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. In theory would be more than enough to move to the small utility of less than 1,000 kg.

It is an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in about 8 seconds and a maximum speed of 200 km/h. Something below the newly renovated Abarth 595 having now from 145 to 180 HPwould still be. With these changes the up! GTI would also have a revised chassis and a new suspension with a reduced height and a touch harder and sports to improve their behavior.

Of course there would be changes on the outside, with quite specific equipment such as 16 inch wheels similar to the of the Golf GTI, wheel arches flared or dual Chrome exhaust outlet. The interior also would benefit from characteristic shift lever and the upholstery style tartan. It will still take your confirmation, but in case you arrived, the Volkswagen up! GTI would have three- and five-door versions.
