Some news about the GTI version of Golf.

Quote:
Within days of the new VW Golf VI media release, talk about the sporty GTI version is already emanating. According to VW insiders who spoke with Autocar, the Golf GTI will get 11hp more for a total of 211hp. Increase in power is a result of VW's new global 2.0-liter turbo EA888 engine, which is equipped with Audi's new variable valve-lift system. VW also made access to the turbo and oil cooler easier, therefore, keeping service times/costs down.
The GTI will also look the part with more distinctive body kit, taillights, 18 and 19-inch wheels and headlights with Audi-style LED daytime driving lights.
Unfortunately, the R32 and its sonic V6 engine are being dropped due to EU emissions legislation. However, VW will, in spirit, bring it back via an all-wheel-drive R variant called GTI-R. It will be powered by the 265hp 2.0 TFSI found in the Audi S3.
The new GTI is expected to tease enthusiasts in concept form this October in Paris. Market launch will be spring 2009.

The Golf VI in Depth, here:
Volkswagen Golf Mk6 in Depth

This is a very big article so I am not posting it. However, a few good images I am posting.

IMO, they could have gone in for more exciting design. This is too safe a design, specially the passenger cabin design.

Power window switches in the centre console has more use rather then on the drivers door side just like in the Golf 2, Benz 300D and the BMW525
