The new VW Golf has barely appeared and already the volks at Volkswagen are giving us the starting price — 16,500€ (about $25,500) in Germany. This price is a hike of about 200€ over the current Golf V, and considering the updates you get in efficiency, power, and the reduced emissions — not to mention that lovingly attached Scirocco nose — the bump doesn't seem like such a bad deal. We're expecting a full pricing breakdown when the Golf makes its official debut at the Paris Motor Show; until then, direct comparisons to US pricing will be tough, but expect a similar increase when the new Golf hits US dealers next year.
