      Volkswagen's Golf 7 will officially be shown at the Paris Auto Show in September, so final mules and test vehicles are out and about. Spy photographers are snapping up pictures and while we still can't tell an awful lot from these shots, we know based on the MQB platform we viewed that the wheelbase is slightly longer, the width is up a bit and the front over hangs have been reduced. People inside VW that have seen the Golf 7 say that it looks great, particularly the GTI.

      Until the car gets introduced though, here are a few shots to tease you a bit...

      the change in the wheel base makes a big difference on how the car's appearance is.

      could be because camo too... but yeah same as above, i had been looking into a MKVI and glad i didn't ha

      With the MkVI looking as good as it does, I think it would be hard to mess up the MkVII.

      Looks like a more pronounced beltline?

      My thoughts exactly - the MKVI are only about two or three years old right?? I can't afford a new VW anymore, so I haven't been keeping up with the new ones as much, but I didn't think they had been around long enough to do a remodel already.....

      Golf 6 started production in 2009 (MY09) for ROW and 2009 (MY10) for NA. Europe and the ROW always gets the model a year or two before we do here for the most part.

      "WOLFSBURG, Germany — With typical German understatement, Volkswagen's official press announcement of its redesigned 2009 Golf describes the new car as "the best Golf of all times." Let's just say you'll have to look twice to tell that the popular hatchback has received an extensive makeover.

      Sure, there are new features such as adaptive chassis control and automatic distance control. And VW's new seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic is fitted to several models.

      But the Golf's basic hatchback silhouette remains essentially the same as it has for several generations, although the face of the 2009 model bears a distinct family resemblance to that of the new Scirocco.

      A VW spokesman said earlier that the company is proceeding with plans to launch the redesigned Golf in the U.S. in the fall of 2009, most likely as a 2010 model. VW's press material said the car will be launched in Europe in October, followed by rollouts in Africa, Asia, Australia and North America.

      The starting price in Europe will be around $25,400, the company said. In the U.S., the 2009 Rabbit is priced from $16,540 for the basic three-door hatchback.

      Engines for Europe include a range of four-cylinder TDI diesels, from 89 to 168 horsepower, including two new 2.0-liter units that deliver 109 hp and 138 hp, respectively. VW says the 109-hp variant returns fuel economy of up to 52 mpg.

      At the European launch, the new Golf also will offer a choice of four direct-injection gasoline engines, from 79 to 158 hp, several equipped with VW's "twincharger" system. The most frugal gasoline power plant, the 1.4-liter TSI, delivers up to 38 mpg.

      VW is fitting its engines with a six-speed or seven-speed DSG, depending on torque. A six-speed manual is standard on most of the smaller engines.

      In the U.S., the current '09 Rabbit comes with a 170-hp 2.5-liter five-cylinder normally aspirated gasoline engine with a choice of five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. EPA highway mileage is 29 mpg.

      What this means to you: It's definitely new and improved — but the 2009 Golf sure doesn't look much different from its predecessor. — Paul Lienert, Correspondent"

      I can't wait to see a naked shot of a MKVII GTI. It's gonna be so badass. *drool*

      Edit: I'm fairly new to the VW scene so I don't know how it goes with new models.
      Even though the MK7's won't be shown until Sept, is there a chance we'll get some leaked MK7 pics before Sept? What's happened in the past?

      MK6 was really a MK5 with cost cutting production.

      In reality this is the next gen from the MK5.

      I am excited if it is as described.

      230HP, 2850lbs, mechanical LSD.

      As long as they can keep the NVH at MK6 levels sign me up.

      This is the Golf, not the GTI. I really hope they don't go the MK6 Jetta route and not offer HIDs though. The specs on this thing sound really solid, can't wait to see it

      That's a well disguised car. I can't tell anything about how it will look.
