Live from Paris 2008: 2009 Volkswagen Golf GTI comes to Paris with 5-doors

When we saw the reveal of the 2009 Volkswagen Golf GTI earlier week it only had 3-doors and the word ‘concept’ attached to it. Now at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, Volkswagen has dropped the word ‘concept’ and attached two extra doors.

The 2009 Volkswagen Golf GTI will come to the U.S. in October 2009 and will be only offered as a 3-door since we’re not special enough here on the stateside to have an extra set of doors. Nonetheless, we still get to push the 207-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder TSI engine – and we still got to go from 0 to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds. Oh, and we still get to average a fuel-economy of 31 mpg.

Pricing for the new Golf GTI will be announced closer to launch.
