      As far as my comments go, I'm simply saying that 217 is far from "pathetic".

      That was my thought as well, but obviously I'm not a power junkie.

      I'm not saying the current GTI is slow (I have one) but they've been hovering around the 200hp mark since 2006. VW has proven they can get north of 250 hp out of the 2.0T. I just think the GTI is due for a HP bump, considering the MKVI GTIs are putting out around 220.

      Gotcha. I was assuming it was a standard response and treated it as such. Sorry about the "rolleyes". I don't often use them, but my sarcasm meter is petering out. (petered-meter?)

      Both the Fsi and Tsi 2.0t were underrated from VW. Now that VW says the new 2.0t will make 217hp, what makes you think it is not equally underrated?

      Also, let's see what they actually do instead of relying on rumors.
      You make a fair point. I would change my response to "meh".

      My gripe is that many ultra heavy SUVs out perform this car is a straight line now. I understand straight line performance isn't everything, but is is something. Imagine how much better the GTI would be if it came with 260hp from the factory instead of 215ish. When you hear the letters "GTI" you shouldn't think econo box with a nice interior.

      A slight power bump with new DSG and the electro-mechanical LSD and lower weight would entice me enough to trade in the MK6....that is if between now and then nothing were to happen to sour my experience with VW. Which thus far has been pretty fantastic....knock on wood...

      I just had a thought, though. Perhaps they will bump the power up to close to what the R is, but they may not want to announce that right now with Rs sitting on lots. Why pay $32k for a car that will be out of date, outrun and an old generation in a year or so? If you think you're going to have 15% more power, then it's a more logical purchase. (If a $32,000 hatch can be logical, that is.)

      Well, it pretty much is an econo box with a nice interior and a performance tune. That being said, they have to be careful not to get behind and let Ford Mazda etc. eat their lunch.

      Also, see my previous post. They may be holding their cards close to their vests.

      From C/D:

      0-60 mph - 6.1 secs
      1/4 mile - 14.7 secs @ 96 mph

      What "many" ultra heavy SUVs outperform it in a straight line?

      That would make a good amount of sense. I know VW's MO isn't about having the most HP in their segment, but they really can't afford to sit by and let everybody else be 30+ hp ahead of them in the "hot hatch" segment.

      I guess we'll see what they decide to do. I am glad they are shaving weight and hopefully with the global platform, we'll see some cost savings passed back to the consumers.

      It would still be econobox with a nice interior. That won't change even if they stuff a W12 inside.

      That is where you are wrong. If it had a better motor (not necessarily the w12) it would be an econo box with a nice interior that can perform.

      Take the cobalt SS. A cobalt is a bare bones econo box with nothing really going for it. Strap in a better motor and great suspension and it became the best handling and best performing FWD car to date. Still has a less than stellar interior and mundane design, but at least it can say it is the best at something.

      Nah, it's still an econobox. Certainly it can kick ass and take names, but it's still a tarted-up econobox. This is not to say that tarts can't be really, really delicious, though.

      I could build up my Beetle to where it would blow the doors off of most torsion sprung 911s, but it would still be an economy car whereas the much slower 356 would not. (Yes, I'm aware that it wouldn't be "factory", but the example still holds.)

      So you disagree with me then prove my point on it still being an econobox with a nice interior....

      In my explanation I forgot to sum it up, bu I meant that the Cobalt SS is still an econo box, but it is great at something. Where the GTI is also an econo box that is great at nothing with the best thing going for it is the interior.

      Perhaps I misspoke, but I always maintain that the GTI is an econo box with a nice interior. Nothing great, but some good.

      That's the way I look at mine, and not in a derogatory manner. It is what it is.

      I will say that if this new one is finally getting the valve lift motor, it will be perfectly fine for a stock performance experience...regardless of what the actual HP rating is quoted at for the public.

      Oh noez ... VW is putting in VTAK ... what will the Honda haters do now?

      /And yes, I'm fully aware that nearly every new car these days implements a version of variable valve lift and duration ... I just laugh at the people who make fun of VTEC being a child's toy when, in reality, it revolutionized the way people designed engines.

      Isn't that what this class of cars is supposed to be? Cheap performance? When did the GTI/Cobalt SS/pocket rockets get elevated to high-performance standards? It's always been my understanding they are a better performing version of an existing car allowing buyers to have a better driving experience at a low price while still allowing utility while remaining a fully functioning daily driver.

      Totally agree But like I said, the GTI is falling too far behind in the performance category.

      Performance may not be really any worse than any of these so I don't see why the GTI needs to be the hp leader. This is as silly as Swallow D and his insistance on boasting everytime Honda gets trumped by Hyundai as if Honda must be the segment leader in all sorts of metrics.

      Well from the rumors circulating the MKVII should make quite the leap in terms of performance. The lighter weight, improved handling, and even slight power bump will help greatly. While I see your point about not being the best at any one thing (compared to its rivals) I disagree this is something to fault VW for. The buff books and auto journos constantly heap praise on the GTI that it is the best all-rounder. Does it excel at any one thing? Not exactly, but it does almost everything really really well. While a competitor may have a faster 0 - 60 time, it might have a coarse or peaky engine. Does another competitor handle better? It may suffer from a punishing ride. I think it's far more difficult for an automaker to get an economy car to perform very well in all areas vs. being good at one thing while other areas are missed.

      Why do you guys feed the troll? All he does is show up in GTI threads and prattle on about horsepower. Ignore him.

      Those are renderings. It looks like they came from different sources yet look strikingly similar so I'd guess they're pretty close to the real thing.

      Perhaps I misspoke, but I always maintain that the GTI is an econo box with a nice interior. Nothing great, but some good.
      Oh, I think the GTI holds up just fine, but it's strength is it's balance in performance and day-to-day use. It's good at a great many things without being the best-in-class at any particular one (with the possible exception of the aforementioned interior). There's nothing wrong with either philosophy, though, that's for sure.

      This same guy picked a MK6 GLI over a GTI and Golf R.

      He has no integrity in my book.
