September 2009 U.S. launch for VW Rabbit and GTI

>> Sunday, January 4, 2009

Volkswagen will reportedly bring its sixth-generation Golf (Rabbit) and the more performance oriented GTI to the United States by September of next year, with production scheduled to begin for the American-spec cars during the tail end of June. The new Golf is expected to be slightly more expensive than the outgoing model, with a $250 price hike set to apply to the base level Golf and GTI models. The improvements include a new engine lineup and increased availability of DSG dual-clutch transmission technologies, which can lower fuel consumption by up to 28% in some models. Despite the current economic crisis and concerns over fuel prices, VW is eager to bring the GTI hot-hatch Stateside and is estimating that it will account for more than a third of Golf sales.
