Most of VW's GTI models have been getting detuned, so I don't know if this is anything but speculation. A jump of 80hp is substantial and not something we often see from one MY to the next.

All that added power better be backed up by a suspension and braking system that can keep up. VW isn't in the business of building hot rods.

If it is true this is going to raise pricing of their performance models greatly. The market seems to be shifting to more value oriented hot hatches.

Its not a matter of value, its a matter of where certain car makers can position themselves. Hyundai can't be Honda.

Sure people want the most bang for their buck, but badge bias is still a factor in this class. There are a lot of new candidates joining, but they don't have the same established credibility as segment leaders.

The saying, you get what you pay for is true here and its what serious buyers are considering. By buying the VN you're missing out on Type R abilities.

Difference isn't going to made up by tuning either. The rest is just speculation.

The DTUK Tuner will easily make up the difference with an added 40+ hp and 70 ft lbs of torque. However you can't purchase a Honda Civic Type R for under 38K. With the Hyundai Veloster N, you most certainly can. Besides the Ford Focus RS has got them all beat hands down.

All bench racing aside, you gentleman might quit the speculating and buy one, so you can see for yourselves. I find it quite humorous that," you all want to talk the talk but as soon as the VN is released you all don't want to walk the walk" and disappear. What happen did you lose your interest already?:grin:

Blessings and Peace
