2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport specs

The drivers of the 2015 Volkswagen Golf already enjoy a nice, powerful drive with an engine that tops out at a respectable 220 horsepower. But if you’re looking for more power out of your vehicle, Volkswagen’s got you covered. Recently, it’s been announced that the 2016 Volkswagen GTI Clubsport engine specs show that the 2016 GTI will be one of the most powerful yet!

Volkswagen is celebrating 40 years of the Volkswagen Golf GTI by creating this new powerful model. Stylistically, the Clubsport model has a lot of similarities to the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Despite these similarities, the Clubsport still manages to make its own statement with a selection of additions. One of the additions to the 2016 Golf is the new innovative roof spoiler. The spoiler adds substantial downforce to the hatchback, which makes it easier to control at higher speeds.

This extra control is definitely a plus when you consider all of the power under the hood of the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport. It will have the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the Golf, but Volkswagen has announced it will reach a truly impressive output of 292 horsepower.

The official pricing for the 2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport has yet to be announced, but we suspect it will be priced somewhere between the GTI and R models. In that case, we here at Speedcraft VW would predict that its price tag will range around $30,000.

For now, the 2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport is only schedule to release in Europe. While this is unfortunate, it doesn’t mean that the hatchback won’t eventually make its way to the states.
