Highlights. The numerous details and technical finesse make it the leader of the pack – enjoy the highlights of the Golf VI. You'll also find the sporty models here, such as the Golf GTD, GTI or the dynamic R-Line.


Sporty or classic: With the Golf VI, you don't have to choose just one. Its design brings both styles together - from the clear and powerful shape of the wheels, the elegant lines of the vehicle rear, to the twin tailpipe, which alludes to the sheer power hidden beneath the engine lid.

Technology of the Golf 6.

Lower consumption, less CO2 - but that doesn't mean less driving pleasure. The Golf VI brings performance and responsibility together in one model. Thanks to BlueMotion technologies such as start-stop systems or recuperation, which help your Golf recapture energy whenever you brake. Also available as 1.6 litre TDI, TSI or liquefied petroleum gas run bi-fuel.


Every journey becomes more enjoyable when you feel safe. Your Golf VI can lend a helping hand. For example, with a rear view camera system, which makes sure you can see absolutely everything behind you, right down to the neighbour's dog. With the Electronic Stability Control, which keeps you on track, even in critical situations. Or with airbags at the front and on the sides, for your knees and head.

Assistance systems of the Golf 6.

Anything can happen on the road. This is why your Volkswagen Golf VI supports you with its intelligent assistance systems: The optional adaptive chassis control DCC reacts automatically to the situation and to the road. And to you: With just the click of a button, you can decide how comfortable or sporty you want your car to be.


With your destination in sight and your favourite song in your ear, driving suddenly becomes a lot more relaxed. The multimedia equipment in your Golf VI provides you with an incredibly rich sound, as well as helping you to find your route quickly and easily. Depending on the fittings, it can be equipped with a voice command system, traffic sign recognition, touchscreen, hands-free system and DVD drive.

With the R-Line specification packages for Trendline, Comfortline and Highline, you'll cover every distance in a more sporty and exclusive manner than ever before.
