i loved the mk6 why was it so short lived? any way this doesnt look bad either, the interior is real nice, but i dont get the short life span of the 6 while other generations went on for at least 5.5 years from what i understand
OK - so I like the looks. The fender flares in the back are subtle but they'll look great on the GTI.
I'm pumped about the lighter weight but the 222hp that I'm reading in most articles is a real let down. VW could dominate the hot hatch market with more power.
Looks great. Very clean and well-resolved.
Evolutionary, but that's okay with me because I love the MkVI design.

The big question is... What will come here to the U.S.? Are we gonna get the big screw job that we normally do? Like giving us huge wheel gaps, cut out great tech, and strip out all the great options that the european market will get. I really hope that VW changes that here in the states this time around.

Meh, don't know what to think of it. The c pillar is an definite improvement over the MK6, but that's about it. The tail lights look good from the side, but weird from behind. The headlights are meh. They should have kept them rounded; they were a signature trait of the Golf.
Hard to really judge the overall look of the car, though, since these images have the **** photoshopped out of them.
edit: just found some real life pics; looks much better.
