Replacement for a 2005 Golf GTI?

My wife has had a Golf GTI 2005 since new. We are thinking about replacing it this year. We still like the car after 8 years and would like the same from our next car. When does the new 5 door GTI come out and how much will it be? Also are there any other cars that we should consider that might offer fun ownership over the long term?

Later this year. Can't tell you precisely when. A 1.2TSI 105 SE is £20k so reckon on close to £30,000.
