Polo Mark IVF. In 2005, VW Polo, Mark IVF ("9N") was face-lifted with new Volkswagen Passat-style headlights and tail lights, and a restyled hatch. This new Polo Mark IVF was designed by Walter de'Silva. In Europe, the Mark IVF is available in 6 trim levels, ranging from the basic "E" model to the "GTI".

Golf Mark 5. The 5th generation Golf Mark 5 (VW Typ 1K) was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in October 2003 and one month later was available for sale in Europe. To commemorate this new Golf launch, Wolfsburg town was renamed "Golfsburg" for a week. VW Golf 5 reached North American markets in June 2006 rebadged as the revived Rabbit nameplate.

Golf 5 GTI. The Golf 5 GTI is hailed as a return-to-form for the famous progenitor of the genre. The Golf GTI 5 features a 2.0 L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with FSI (Fuel Stratified Injection) direct-injection technology, developing 200 bhp. GTI is available in both 3-door and 5-door hatchback variants, and comes with a choice of either 6-speed manual or a highly technical 6-speed DSG gearbox which greatly reduces shift time to only 8ms.

Jetta Mark 5. The 5th generation Jetta debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show on January 5, 2005. It was only the second VW product to debut at a US Auto show (the other being the New Beetle). The 5th generation car has the widest variety of names of any generation but in most countries, it is referred to as Volkswagen Jetta.

New Beetle. It was at the 1994 North American International Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled the J Mays "Concept 1", a concept car with futuristic styling deliberately reminiscent of the original old Beetle's rounded body. Strong public reaction convinced the company to launch the new VW Beetle into production, and in 1998, 20 years after the last original Beetle was sold in the United States, Volkswagen started producing the New Beetle, designed by Mays and Freeman Thomas at the company's California design studio.

Passat Mark 6. The latest Passat 6 was first displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005 and soon launched in Europe in the summer of 2005. The new VW PQ46 Passat features a return to the transversely mounted engine and, unlike its predecessor, doesn't share its platform with the Audi A4. Instead, much of its platform (the PQ46) is similar to the Golf Mark 5.

Phaeton. The Volkswagen Phaeton is a large luxury sedan, serving as the flagship of the Volkswagen line-up, competing with other high-end luxury sedans such as the Jaguar XJ, BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS460, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It adopts its name from Phaëton, the son of Helios in Greek mythology and harkens back at the same time to the early days of automobile production, when the phaeton body was a separate class of vehicles.

Golf-plus. In 2004, Volkswagen announced the Golf- Plus variant of the Golf 5. Volkswagen Golf- Plus is 9.5 cm taller than the standard Golf, but 15 cm shorter than the MPV of the marque, the seven-seater VW Touran. The Plus replaced the Variant station wagon in the Golf lineup, although a Mark 5 Golf Variant was revealed in 2007 as well. There is no convertible version of the Golf 5, as the Eos coupé convertible (introduced in Spring 2006) is marketed as a separate model and the New Beetle convertible makes a droptop Golf redundant.

Eos. The Volkswagen Eos is a coupe convertible, produced from 2006. Eos is the successor of the Volkswagen Cabrio, and became Volkswagen's first sports and coupe car since the Corrado, which discontinued production in 1995. The model name is taken from Eos, he was a Greek goddess of dawn and wind. Before to the production version, the Eos debuted as the Concept C concept car at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. The VW Eos was launched in production in September 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Sharan. The new VW Sharan in 2006 was released with a 2.0 L 85kW flexible fuel engine, which could run with either petrol or gas (liquified petroleum gas). So that not to compromise the size of the car's interior the 60 L liquid gas tank was built into the spare wheel well. As a result, the redesigned Volkswagen Sharan receives an additional range of up to 450 km (280 miles) as its 70 litre (18 US Gallon) petrol capacity, enough to cover 730 km (454 miles) at an average fuel consumption of 9.6 L/100 km.

Touran. The Volkswagen Touran is a compact MPV based on a vertically stretched 5th generation of the Volkswagen Golf. It is marketed in Europe and some other selected countries. VW Touran received a face-lift, the new model was presented to the public at the 2006 Paris Motor Show.

Touareg. The Volkswagen Touareg is a mid-size luxury SUV produced since 2003, being the first of this Sport SUV class ever produced by the Volkswagen. It is based on the Volkswagen E platform. The Touareg's first face-lift, featuring the shield grille from other Volkswagen vehicles was presented at the 2006 Paris Motor Show. The new VW Touareg has more than 2300 redesigned parts and shows some new technological features.
