What is the point of having a glitzy unveiling under the lights of Paris when the model has already hit the streets? A valid question that could be asked by many after a reader at Golfmk6 forum grabbed a few shots of 100 models of the 6th generation Volkswagen Golf that were spotted arriving in Iceland ahead of a planned press event towards the end of the month. Not that we're complaining, its great to see what the model looks like in the real world and our conclusion: Volkswagen have yet another winner.

Styling features on the new model shares strong characteristics with the new Sciricco and sees the Golf inherit a sportier presence to it. Pricing for the model will start at €16,500 (German market) which represents a premium of €200 over the current model and as usual for the Golf, the large array of engine options will be available again. Four gasoline engines will be available from launch starting with two normally aspirated engines making 59 kW / 80 PS, 75 kW / 102 PS. Then TSI in either supercharged and/or turbocharged form making 90 kW / 122 PS and 118 kW / 160 PS. These will be backed up with a choice of two 2.0 liter TDI engines making 81 kW / 110 PS and 103 kW / 140 PS.
