3-door and 5-door versions

Like our competitors, we caught the next generation Volkswagen Golf in the Californian desert today, but unlike the others we caught both the 3-door and 5-door versions of the 6th generation Golf. Even though sales of the new 2007-model Golf just recently begun over in the United States, European sales of the car have been lagging, and manufacturing time is nearly twice as long as other cars in its class. We hear that orders from management are to simplify and shorten the assembly process, and produce the next generation on the current but updated platform with, of course, considerable cost-cutting savings. And, in the process, giving it a more exciting and slightly more aggressive look. Sources close to Volkswagen believe the new Golf will reach European dealerships in late 2008, but American’s will have to wait a bit longer to purchase what will commonly be known nearly everywhere as the Golf VI.
