2013 Volkswagen GTI
Volkswagen recently announced the 2013 Volkswagen GTI to the public by, and the new generation of the legendary car is going to see some awesome improvements. The 2013 version is set to be loaded with a turbocharged 260 horsepower monster engine, even more than the expected 220HP, and also come with a trick front differential. The small and efficient car market is in some serious competition right now, and these improvements bolt the GTI to the top of the list as of right now.
Aside from the horsepower, the new GTI also comes with a trick front differential in order to better control the car as it pushes so much power. It’s electronically controlled and will undoubtedly allow the car to steer better than its predecessors. I can’t wait to be able to drive it.
Its set to go on sale to public in January, assuming the world hasn’t ended by then. Giving it more speed is the use of lighter weight metals such as aluminum around the car in order to give it an even better performance on the road.
The gas economy is set to be about the same as it was in 2012, even with the increased power boost. The 2012 supercharged V4 engine got a combined average of 33 in the automatic model, while 31mpg in the six-speed dual clutch transmission model (shouldn’t it be the other way around?). It will keep up to the par with the new Ford Focus, which also got a decent power boost. The Focus will probably be cheaper, but you don’t get the reliability that you know Volkswagen provides.
The car is set to be front wheel drive, and some new Volkswagen technology is set to be behind some of the increased HP in the new car. Using the new front differential and new system to control what part of the car gets the most torque, the 2013 Volkswagen GTI is set to be an industry standard, both inside and out. It will also be available in an all new Cabriolet model, with a stunning convertible exterior.
