The current VW GTI is garnering lots of praise in the motoring press, but it's never too soon to talk about the next iteration. Based on spy photos of the sixth-generation GTI caught testing in Germany, this rendering shows a promising turn in the hot hatch's design. While the basic shape is familiar enough, the front end shows off design cues lifted straight off the GTI W12 650 concept that VW showed at this year's Wörthersee show. The lower front intake is split into three parts just like the 650-horsepower monster compact on which it's based, and the grille itself is outlined in red, as well. eGMCarTech also tells us the next Golf/Rabbit and its GTI version will feature design cues from the VW up! concepts currently making the rounds of international motor shows. What will be powering the next GTI is not known, but most expect the 200-horsepower 2.0L turbo to carry over.
