WATCH: An ode to the Mk1 GTI - the snappy little VW Up! GTI is a modern rendition of the first classic
It took 42 years, but Volkswagen finally has a GTI offering for the younger audience in its line-up again.
The UP! GTI is the modern rendition of the first ever Golf GTI where punchy performance meets even weight distribution.
Unfortunately not locally
The nimble hatch features a 1.0-litre TSI engine with a total power output of 85kW, 4 more than the MK1 GTI when it was launched in 1976.
Unfortunately for local VW fans the UP! GTI is not available in here, with global production already in full swing.
