Volkswagen is bringing back the V6 sports car with a new model to the company’s lineup.
The V6 GTI sports car will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show, the automaker said in a statement.
The car is based on the V10 V8 sports car that VW launched in 2010.
Volkswagen says it will debut the new model in 2019, and it is expected to compete with the upcoming VW Golf, Golf GTI, and Golf R.
Volkswagen’s announcement comes as VW continues to grapple with how to handle its global emissions scandal and the ongoing push for U.S. regulators to approve new regulations.
The company said the GTI is a crossover SUV that will be sold in a variety of trim levels.
It will feature a V6 turbocharged engine, and the vehicle will have a range of 1,200 to 2,000 miles on a single charge.
The vehicle will also have a manual transmission.
Volvo says the V8 GTI will be offered with both front and rear seating positions.
The company says the GTi will also be available with a four-wheel-drive option.
Volking said the new GTI models will have features such as a power-assisted steering system, a four wheel independent suspension, and a heated front seats.
The new models will be available in the U.K. and the U: the Golf GT I and the Golf R, respectively.
Volkswagen said it will begin shipping the new V6 models later this year.
