Which is odd. If the new GTI is going to have the same tranny and motor as the current Golf R, why release it so close to the new car's unveiling?

EDIT*

New car gets the Golf R type motor. Transmission is not AWD.
This quite typical actually. Many manufacturers release special editions at the tail end of production for a given platform to help bolster sales which typically fade over time. I won't be surprised if the new GTI is both faster and cheaper then the current Golf R (even if the new car doesn't have awd).
