The 2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport represents the most powerful Golf GTI ever made. The new performance hatchback is designed in order to celebrate the next year’s fortieth birthday of this powerful model. The new 2016 Golf GTI Clubsport debuted at the Lake Wörthersee GTI Meeting on May 14th and was really breathtaking. The new hatch comes with unique, yet recognizable style, amazing details and fantastic performance. The manufacturer invested a lot of effort into the new hatch as it will have to tackle down a rather serious competition. Also, the Golf GTI’s anniversary is a really important event since this model is very famous and it deserves a proper celebration. Though the 2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport which was presented two weeks ago isn’t an exact replica of the future production model, it is a very close sibling. The manufacturer stated the 2016 GTI Clubsport presented at the aforementioned meeting is a “near-production concept car”, meaning very little will be changed on the future production counterpart.
The 2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport will come with impressive appearance. The new model will resemble the rest of the Golf GTI lineup, but it will also come with some unique and interesting details. To start with, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport will feature a brand-new front bumper, roof edge spoiler and new side sills. The design will also be enhanced with a cool new rear diffuser. These details will make the model look more aggressive and unique, but they will also improve the model’s performance. All the aforementioned changes will improve the hatch’s aerodynamics and according to the manufacturer, thanks to them, the new 2016 GTI Clubsport will come with excellent handling, cornering at high speeds and improved stability.

The 2016 VW Golf GTI Clubsport will be the most powerful GTI model made so far. It will come with a really impressive powertrain setup.
