After only 5 years since the current Volkswagen Golf has been launched, the new Golf VI it is expected to go on sale, in autumn 2008. The new Golf will get a B6-to-B7 redesign where the car doesn’t move to an all-new platform, but does significantly change. The new Golf will be distinguished for his sport appearance.

It will be one one of the first model to incorporate the new Volkswagen design, getting rid of huge metal parts all over the car. In addition it will feature LED lights in the side mirrors, being more elegant like the current Golf.

The gas engine range of the Golf VI will include: a new 1,4 liter engine, both naturally aspirated (80 hp) and turbocharged (TFSI, 120 hp), the 1,6 liters engine (102 hp), the 2,0 liters engine, both naturally aspirated (150 hp) and turbocharged (200 hp) and the 1,4 dual-charger TSI engine (150 hp). Diesel engines will include the old 1.9 TDI Pompe-Duse (105 hp) and two new common-rail engines: a 1,6 liters TDI (90 hp) and a 2.0 liters TDI in two power steps (same as today, 140 and 170 hp).

Also there are rumors that the new Golf will be available only in two versions, and not three like the Golf V: a 2-door coupe and a van similar to the Volkswagen Golf Plus, which is right now only available in Europe.
