The Return of the Volkswagen VR6?


We originally reported back in May 2013 that VW was considering a VR6 return (read that story HERE), now however that idea is gaining speed.
A new report has surfaced that Volkswagen is preparing a new small displacement VR6. With the recent news that VW is transforming all their engines to forced induction, this new VR6 would be turbo or twin-turbo charged powerplant with a displacement around 3.0L
The project is being headed by VW's new head of engine development Fritz Eichler who previously was in charge at AMG.
It's believed that power would be anywhere from 350-400hp, and could be used in the Passat, Passat CC, new SUV/CUV, next gen Scirocco, and rumored Golf RS.
Volkswagen first showed this VR6 at Wörthersee in the Design Vision GTI concept.
