Volkswagen Golf VI GTI - Australian press launch

The new Mk6 Golf GTI is being presented to the Australian motoring media today in the Victorian Alps. This is good and bad news, really. It’s good news because the latest GTI is almost ready for public consumption (in fact, your local dealer probably has a few in storage right now), but bad news because I have not made it to Volkswagen’s invite list, yet!

So, you’ll have to check out CarAdvice for updates on the local launch and early drive reports.

The pricing of the GTI range that was revealed on AUSmotive earlier this month has proven to be 100% correct (thanks to for that).

No doubt there will be more details coming from the Volkswagen PR machine in the coming days, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, just think how much fun it would be driving the GTI across some of Australia’s best driving roads with little to no traffic getting in the way. Or, around Eastern Creek, perhaps!
