Report: The Volkswagen GTI could gain a 10-speed DSG

AutoExpress reports that the Volkswagen GTI could gain a 10-speed DSG automatic, after speaking to a “good authority” source within the company. It would replace the current model’s seven-speed DSG, but the seven-speed will remain for lesser versions of Golf.

The 10-speed is being designed for the GTI, the GTD and the Golf R and is expected to surface sometime in 2017. After debuting in the Golf, it could find its way into other Volkswagen Group models based on their latest MQB platform, much like the seven-speed unit sees widespread use.

Volkswagen supposedly said the new cog swapper is designed to handle up to 405 lb-ft of torque, so this means the 10-speed DSG’s application has the potential to go far and wide.
