Speculation du jour: Mk. VI Golf may look like this

Italy's Automobilismo spoke with Volkswagen's newly appointed Head of Creative Design Flavio Manzoni. His first project is the Mk. VI and the rendering shown is based on his description of the car.

Suffice it to say, it's not looking very good for the Mk. VI, with this being the most ridiculous looking one of all the renderings out there.

Manzoni says that the next gen Golf will continue a style trend from previous models and the current car's proportions will remain. That said, the front and rear will receive a treatment that will be adopted by all future Volkswagen vehicles.

We already saw, from a spyshot we showed a few weeks ago, what the rear may look like. But missing was a shot of the front. So could this be the new Mk. VI?

Speaking as an enthusiast, I hope not.

It's just one of those designs that takes some getting used to.

That's the most ridiculous looking thing I've ever seen. If VW builds that, they will go bankrupt.

I think that somebody has just pasted the front end from the Brazilian "Gol" shown elsewhere on these pages, onto the front of the Golf.
If this IS being seriously considered, then all I can say is "Dear VW, if you cannot do better than a MkIV front, then just go with the MkIV front." (and back, for that matter.
Understated is what we're looking for.

we now know what the VI will look like, but this rendering isn't that bad, either - at least as a styling base. It's going back and modernizing an existing design. That's what VW does, and it's what they have done with the real VI, in a way.
