Ladies and gents we have what everyone has been looking for lately. The new Volkswagen Golf VI photos which leaked out just a couple of days ahead of the official media release. Public debut is set for October at the Parisian motor show but meanwhile let’s see what changed.
After spending too much money on building Golf V which had a great interior, good performances but an unimpressive exterior, with a long production time and high costs, the company is now trying to sell the new model (Golf 6) like hot bread. Based on the current MK V platform, with an exterior by Walter de Silva, somewhat sexier and with a more aggressive stance, the new Golf VI will have three and five door versions, a cabriolet (nothing certain yet) and of course the GTI.
The big news include the 1.6-liter TFSI engine that develops some 200 hp, 1.0-liter or 1.2-liter engines that develop 75 hp, and the twin-drive plug-in hybrid model. If you’re in for the GTI it should sport 230 hp while the R32 is going to expose nothing less than 265 hp.
What do you guys think?
