In 1984 the Mk II GTI was launched and picked up where the Mk I left off. A new chassis structure, a 1,781 cc engine developing 112 PS and 114lbs ft of torque and new styling, evolved the GTI and saw it appeal to a new generation of fans. Sales of the Mk II GTI surpass those of the Mk I, peaking at 17,193 vehicles in 1989. In Germany a supercharged G60 version developing 160 PS goes on sale, an output that would not be bettered in a GTI until 2002.
