We already know that the Volkwagen Golf GTI will be in Mzansi during the first half of 2020. This has been confirmed. Now it’s time for us to see what the GTI will actually look like. Although these new spy pictures don’t reveal much, they are useful in telling one or two details that we can expect to see when the car arrives.

One such detail are the two exhaust tailpipes, one of each side, just like the previous-generation GTI. They are round and noticeably sizeable. The other thing is the front, which features the new VW logo, LED headlights and daytime running lights, as well as large air dams below the front grille. Because this particular unit is undergoing snow and ice tests, it is using winter tyres.

We know the new Golf GTI will use a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine to power itself, but we don’t yet know how much power it will carry. However, we do hope it will go over the 200kW mark this time around, or at least be within striking distance of it. After all, rivals are already there. Power and torque will be sent to the front wheels using a standard automatic transmission. There will be no manual GTI, at least not in Mzansi.
