VW Golf 6 Update

Fans of the iconic VW Golf range will have to wait with bated breaths, as the appearance of the the Golf VI is likely to be postponed. An interview with VW’s head of development Ulrich Hackenburg at the Shanghai Show established that VW’s best seller will not be replaced next spring as per original plans. Apparently, the current Golf V is still selling well and there isn’t sufficient reason to effect a hasty replacement.

However, new VW head Martin Winterkorn was not pleased with the Golf VI’s design and rescheduled the 2008 Geneva Show premiere of the car. He is said to have ordered a complete redesign. The latest addition to Golf’s long lineage seems due for launch sometime in the later months of 2008. According to Hackenburg, the new Golf will utilize an updated version of Audi’s current 160Hp 1.8 Litre Turbocharged FSI mill, most likely with a GT badge, as word suggests that VW plans halting the production of the 170Hp 1.4TSI motor due to reliability problems.The Golf VI GTI is likely to use an upgraded version of the current 2.0 TFSI motor. An SUV variant of the Golf is rumoured to be planned for introduction in the new lineup.

Let’s hope the regular Golf range conspires to deliver some GTI feel. It’s a good car, sure, but a little more excitement from the chassis would be lovely, even if you’re driving a low-po diesel. http://www.GoodCarBadCar.net recently went back in time to drive a Golf MKIV and found it surprisingly fun.

If I was not a fan of VW, I would mistakenly say this is Alfa Romeo. The back looks exactly like Alfa Romeo (not sure which model), but I think they need to go back to the drawing board. Anyway maybe she looks better on a naked eye. You must also take another look at the number of doors. out of 10 – 4

To me it does not look like VW were planning on doing major changes to the G5 model. All they wanted to do was fix the mistakes they made with the production of the G5 by introducing the G6. Similarly the GTI also does not promise much in terms of looks. I am still disappointed by VW’s pricing and what they offeron their models. It’s just not worth it.
If only they could just go to the streets and see and hear what the VW fanatics want from them, they’d make a killing selling their cars.

Have anyone noticed that the used car dealerships are getting full of G5gti, why are so many people getting rids of the gti’s so soon, can it be due to unsatisfactory performance, I’ve Gti with less than 5000km’s

If i were to be asked tomorrow to choose between your Merc , Beamer or top of the range GOLF…its no brainer i would go for GOLF, my family knows it.
