We finally have live shots of the pre-revealed 2009 Volkswagen GTI and, not surprisingly, it looks like a 2009 Golf VI with a bit more edge. This time we get to see the two extra doors for the five-door GTI, which looks rather fetching in hot red. The lower, wider air dam and the red trim are clear indicators that this hatch means business. Combined with the wide-spoke wheels this is clearly a GTI. And under the hood?
The new GTI will be carrying over the 2.0-liter turbo four used in the previous generation Edition 30 MK V, which should be good for 207 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque. It'll carry any VeeDubbers to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds with a top speed of 149 mph.
