VW Golf VI Now Available with LED Rear Lights

 VW Golf VI Now Available with LED Rear Lights
Volkswagen Golf GTD with bi-xenon-headlights

 

Volkswagen Golf fans will probably be cheering over the latest offering from VW.  Rear LED lights for the Golf VI are now optionally available for €350 but come standard on the Golf GTD, Golf GTI and Golf R.

The company uses 48 light emitting diodes to make the four curve-and-dot shapes seen in the photos.  These lights are covered in a smoked lens, giving a very recognizable look that should not blind tailing drivers.

Aside from looking good, they also light up 0.2 seconds faster than normal incandescent lights.  VW believes this technology has a safety impact, claiming that "at a speed of 100 km/h it is equivalent to 5.6 meters braking distance."  Of course, this depends on how hard you hit the brakes.

Volkswagen is also making available Bi-Xenon headlights for 1,295 Euros. Optional for all Golf VI models, except Golf R which has them standard, the high intensity discharge lighting system comes equipped with dynamic cornering light, which adjusts the light beam angle in conjunction with the steering angle. They also adapt the light beam's peripheral range relative to the car's speed depending if it's city or highway driving. For example, in city traffic - up to 35 km/h - the lane boundary on the driver's side is illuminated much brighter.

It merely shows why, at long last, the Polo has finally stolen the Golf's thunder! Observe new Polo front and rear design treatment with LED lights and you will see why the mk6 Golf is an uninspiring design. The Scirocco beats both hands down with or without LED lights!

Hey guys Bi-Xenon headlights and LED taillights are nice. I personally dont have a VW, I do have a 99 Corolla with Bi-xenon headlights. They are great for anytime driving spcially at night now if you dont levelized the headlights they the way they should of course you will blind oncoming traffic. Actually I'm thinking to intall LED's in my taillights too and the LED could only blind people when a car stops otherwise they dont and the reason they are brighter is that people see when the car is braking, thats common sense some incandescent bulbs when u hit the brake sometimes its hard to see the difference so led n bixenon are good for me

Listen up all you haters. VW's Golf Kicks butt full stop. These are a nice addition, which will impress the drivers amongst us to enjoy this brilliant car, even more... The comments:...Not news worthy...gay?...Golf 7...How smarmy and ridiculous you sound. It is a car fans website not the bloody Pulitzer!

LWKH...I don't see how LED taillights are "gay". I don't see how automobile taillights are someone's sexual orientation. Dude, a pretty immature and childish comment. Sad, actually!

Woooow! I was hopping so much for this to get onto the Golf VI (six). Now I'm truly convinced to buy one and live happily ever after. Thanks VW so so much.

No doubt introduced to help finance the purchase of the 19.9% stake in Suzuki...? (My bicycles have LED rear lights... for the past few years now!)

Good to see that they've tinted the tail lights - some new cars with LEDs are blinding, eg: Merc E-Class, Audi S4.

Yes, the golf never changes. When you put this next to the first generation golf the inside and outside and both the exact same.
