2008 Paris Special: Volkswagen Golf VI and GTI debut

The Volkswagen stand was really interesting this year in Paris, with two very anticipated debuts, the Volkswagen Golf VI and the GTI version. We’re not going to get into details, we’ve already posted the official info on the Golf VI and the GTI. Besides the mechanical changes and the new features, I’d just like to say that there aren’t any major changes to the exterior (like it was when the fifth generation was introduced. There are, of course, new rear lights (that’s actually the most obvious change) and restyled front lights (we can’t say new, because they look a lot like the ones on the current generation), but that’s it. Nothing has changed to the overall shape of the car. So, we can say that this is basically a facelift. Plus a refreshed interior. We think Volkswagen could’ve done a better work with the sixth Golf. The good news is that the GTI (both 3-doors and 5-doors versions) still looks very aggresive and might do well in the hot-hatch segment.

Sorry about the Golf VI gallery, the photos are quite dark, but Volkswagen didn’t do a great job with their stand’s setup, the cars were quite crowded, so that’s the best we could do. Enjoy!
