Photos of the new Golf VI by Volkswagen

Photos of this brand new 6th generation Volkswagen Golf have just leaked out a few days before to the official media unveiling. Set on making its public appearance this October in Paris, the hugely important auto Golf VI is representing the best selling VW unit like one of those best selling cars in the world.

The Golf VI by VW will have 3 and 5 door variants, a rumoured cabriolet plus the GTI of course which may be getting a glass roof. An all-new TFSI 1.6-liter engine is said also to be on plans that generates around 200 bhp, however, this Golf VI model is set to have a brand new entry level for the engine below the TSI 1.4-liter found on the present generation. Wolfgang Steiger, the manager on powertrain research at VW, tells that this new generation of Golf will be offering either a 1.2-liter or 1.0-liter engine making 75 horsepower. The inal decision about which displacement unit will be used is not finalized yet. It will be depending on whether the management at VW decides on 3 or 4 cylinders.

The diesel engines are expected also equipping the hatchback model, both on BlueMotion plus twin-drive plug-in hybrid variants, scheduled for the release from 2010. This GTI will be getting even more power now than the present unit having an engine producing 230 hp, plus an even hotter performance edition of 4Motion along the current R32's lines delivering 265 hp.
