The Up GTI still uses a turbocharged, 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, now tuned up to 114 hp. That may not scare anyone in the US that is used to Mustangs and Hellcats roaming the streets, but the Up GTI looks like a genuine enthusiast's car. The prototype comes with a six-speed manual which can hit 60 MPH in 8.8 seconds. There will also be a DSG available as an option. It may be as slow as a Toyota Corolla, but the Corolla probably won't be as fun to drive. What Volkswagen has done, essentially, is built an Mk1 Golf GTI for the 21st century. The Up GTI's dimensions are nearly identical to the original Golf GTI, but performance has been improved in every statistic.
