Talk of the next-generation Volkswagen Golf continues, following reports this week that the new model will take on a sharper, sportier look than the current sixth-generation hatch.

Today, new reports suggest that the sports-focused Golf GTI will gain a power boost with the new line-up. According to British magazine Autocar, a revised version of the current model's 2.0 litre turbo engine will feature, boosting power from 155kW to 165kW.

If accurate, the report means the current GTI Edition 35, powered by a 175kW version of the Golf R's engine, will remain a special edition rather than a preview of a coming GTI upgrade.

The Golf R's engine (shared with the Audi S3) will reportedly be retired in the lead-up to coming Euro 6 emission regulations, meaning the next flagship - if the R line is continued - will also need a new heart. An even more powerful version of the current GTI engine is rumoured.

The GTI and R won't be the only models to get powertrain changes. The report adds that the award-winning 1.4 litre petrol 'Twincharger' engine will lose its supercharger - adding credence to rumours from earlier this year.

Producing 118kW in its current form, the new turbo-only version of the engine will reportedly produce closer to 110kW in the next Golf (possibly in a '110 TSI' model).
