Lots of V-dub watchers were shocked when the company hinted it would be moving on to the Golf VI as soon as 2008. It seems like a quick cycle to those of us in the US who just started seeing the new Rabbits on the street last month. But the V will have been in Europe for five years by 2008, and that means it's time for a change. AutoBild predicts the re-aranged Golf will take styling cues from the current Jetta, bringing the two models back into parity. Expect a US version in time for the Great Arctic Meltdown of 2011.
