The Volkswagen Golf VI is somehow a very simple commuter that does well with a bit of a trimming job. In case you posses one, RDX Racedesign has come up with a very impressive styling kit for the Golf VI which promises to render the bunny stylish.

RDX Body Kit for the Volkswagen Golf VI

It offers a front spoiler extension (Price: €149), aggressive side skirts (Price: €149) and a modified rear skirt (Price: €149) which has a diffuser that can be outfitted in a number of color options. There is also a roof spoiler (Price: €149) and headlight masks (Price: €149). With all these parts individually bearing the same price you can keep factoring them in one by one.

Golf VI Plus sets wheel at Bologna Motor Show

Published by on Dec 4th, 2008, No Comments

Volkswagen is all set to forget about the disaster that the Golf V Plus was in terms of wooing consumers and sales numbers and has moved forward with the Golf VI Plus which is all set to debut at the Bologna Motor Show. The upgraded version of the fifth vesion sports narrower headlights, a lower profile, redesigned roof rails and a more attractive look. The interiors of the VI Plus though surprisingly remain unaltered from the Golf V Plus and it is powered by the likes of 2.0-litre TDI, 1.4 TSI under its hood. For now, the price tag on the Golf VI Plus is not yet known.

Abt Golf VI: A powerful overhaul under the hood

Published by on Nov 29th, 2008, 7 Comments

If you are looking for a fabulous tuning kit that not just touches up on the exterior, but gives you some “wow” under the hood, then the Abt Golf VI, making its debut at Essen, is the end of your search. The tuning kit of Abt upgrades your vehicle giving you two different options to choose from. The conventional 122 hp 1.4-litre is expanded to 160 hp and even the 2.0 TFSI gets upgraded from 210 hp to 240 hp, offering you a choice with the power that flows from underneath that hood. The options are both efficient and help your car get lighter and faster with ease. Then there are the additional Abt threaded suspension and breaking systems which match the new performance of the car. Abt also packs some changes to the front grill, rear spoiler, alloy wheels and a lot more. But it is the modifications to what is inside the hood, which still look most impressive.

VW Golf VI BlueMotion Revealed

Published by on Sep 9th, 2008, 2 Comments

Obviously, the last few days have been great for VW’s Golf. We have the new design, we told you yesterday about the new Mk6 but today it’s something different.

The new Golf VI BlueMotion Concept has been revealed today with a a 1.6-litre TDI common rail diesel engine developing 105 PS and 184 lbs-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. But the most important thing with this BlueMotion is that the engine gets an impressive 74.3 mpg (combined) while emitting just 99 g/km of CO2. It also runs on a set of low rolling resistance tyres, has some sort of optimised aerodynamics and includes a revised five speed gearbox.

The specs aren’t bad either. 11.3 seconds to get from 0 to 62mph (100kmh) and a top speed of 117 mph. South Africa should probably get it mid 2009, so if you need a frugal car maybe you can wait for the new VW Golf 6 BlueMotion.

New VW Golf VI Photos

Ladies and gents we have what everyone has been looking for lately. The new Volkswagen Golf VI photos which leaked out just a couple of days ahead of the official media release. Public debut is set for October at the Parisian motor show but meanwhile let’s see what changed.

After spending too much money on building Golf V which had a great interior, good performances but an unimpressive exterior, with a long production time and high costs, the company is now trying to sell the new model (Golf 6) like hot bread. Based on the current MK V platform, with an exterior by Walter de Silva, somewhat sexier and with a more aggressive stance, the new Golf VI will have three and five door versions, a cabriolet (nothing certain yet) and of course the GTI.

The big news include the 1.6-liter TFSI engine that develops some 200 hp, 1.0-liter or 1.2-liter engines that develop 75 hp, and the twin-drive plug-in hybrid model. If you’re in for the GTI it should sport 230 hp while the R32 is going to expose nothing less than 265 hp.
