Volkswagen Golf Vi for Sale
The Volkswagen Golf Vi a.k.a Mk6 is the sixth generation of the golf and was released in 2008 as the successor to the Golf 5. The Golf 6 represents an upgrade from previous generations and the biggest technical changes were to the engineering side to offer a leaner more productive assembly process. Locally manufactured at the Volkswagen plant in Uitenhage, it was manufactured until 2013 when the next generation was launched.
