      Wow . . . I'm thoroughly impressed with this one. Definitely one of the nicest concepts I've seen come out of VW and I think they've definitely hit a home run with this. It looks like a mini A5, especially from the rear. If I wasn't a poor college student, then I'd snap this up in a heartbeat. Hopefully VW will stick true to the concept for much of it and the four door will look just as sharp as the coupé. Now lets see if they actually BUILD the coupé . . .

      Autoblog........

      "Although there's sure to be countless variants of the Coupe when it arrives in production guise (were sure a few versions of the 2.0T will find their way underhood), in the "concept" motivation is provided by a 1.4-liter TSI inline-four, putting out 150 horsepower and 110 pound-feet of torque. However, when partnered with it's hybrid system (a 20-kilowatt electric motor drawing pour from a lithium ion battery), output is boosted by 27 ponies to 177 hp and an equal amount of torque. VW estimates that U.S. mileage should average around 45 mpg and with its hybrid setup, the Concept Coupe can be driven in full electric mode for an unspecified range. With it's seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, VW pegs the Coupe's 0-60 time at 8.1 seconds, with a top speed of 141 mph."

      Somthing fishy is up with every one of VW's press releases regarding fuel economy, they say this will get 4.2 L/100 km EPA or 45 mpg, well last time i checked 4.2/L/100km was 55 MPG. What is up with that?

      Looks absolutely amazing. I was holding out to see what the new Jetta looks like, and this new concept has thrown me through a loop. And the GLI is supposed to look even more aggressive? I can't imagine what it's going to look like if this coupe looks as amazing as this.
      Bring it on, VW. I'm waiting to see this in the flesh, and I'll probably end up buying one just like I did the MkV GLI once I saw it in the flesh.

      Well other then the parts bin A4/A5 taillights and the A4/A5 trunk lid lines making in look like a rebadged Audi from the rear, it's beautiful.
      They should have painted it Audi Nimbus Gray in honor of 1552 design's attempt.

      I love it. Hopefully it'll be at the Toronto Auto show in February.

      US Gallon (3.8 liters) vs Imperial Gallon (4.5 liters)?

      4.2 Liters on 100 km is 55.9 US MPG and get this 67.25 Imperial MPG.
      In other words it still doesn't add up, Vw claims 4.2 liters/100 km **45 US MPG on EPA test. Someone failed their math class.
      We have to assume the liters on 100 km are right because those are the units of measurement they use the most in Europe. Not MPG imperial or US.

      Well boys, keep building the Jetta in Mexico and that only leaves a GTI for me.
      It's better than the current Jetta though, that's for sure.
