German yellow press "Bild" is reporting that there might be a successor, the Volkswagen Golf VI, of the Volkswagen Golf coming already in autumn 2008, after just 5 years with the current VW Golf!
Volkswagen is preparing the replacement of the current generation of Golf with a new model which will earlier circulate in the European market in the summer of 2008. The new GOlf will be distinguished for his sport appearance.
The engine options will be: 1.6 TSI with 200 Hp, 2.0 TSI with 260 Hp and finally 3.6 FSI V6 of 281 Hp.
It’s also said that there might be only two versions of the Volkswagen Golf VI available, instead of 3 now:
1. A coupé-like Volkswagen Golf with just 2 doors.
2. A van-like version of the Volkswagen Golf similar to the VW Golf Plus now which is right now only available in Europe
The reason for the early replacement is said to be the strong competition.
