VW Rabbit Becomes Golf Again For Sixth-Gen U.S. Release

March 30, 2009

Claiming an "important step in realigning with our global heritage," VW is welcoming the Golf nameplate back for the vehicle's sixth generation U.S. debut. For its fifth generation, the vehicle was dubbed Rabbit, harking back to the boxy VW sales success from the early 80s.

The Golf's world debut was in February at the Geneva Motor Show. The Golf's U.S. debut will be next week at the New York International Auto Show, and it will make its way to VW dealers sale this fall.
