      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.

      definitely nicer than the current V. Wish they would put some different wheels on it(concept or not). The wheels on the 4dr look just like the wheels on the VI-R. IMO the R wheels should be more exclusive. Still like the overall design, even if it does look more like an Audi. I like Audis.

      Not a snow balls chance in hell. I'd pay 35k for a 3.6L + 4mo but I doubt VW will do it, no reason to offer a vw coupe with better performance and handling than an A5 for 10k less. I'm guessing 1.4TSI + hybrid and 2.0T only. Possibly fwd only too. We'll see though. It's the first VW that's got me very interested, enough so to trade the R.

      I would love to see a new coupe like this from VW!

      But PLEASE lose the B-Pillar and give me some back windows that drop all the way, for some wide-open vistas. Audi missed this on the A5 Coupe, and I just can't forgive them. I know you can do it. Make it VW, but make it RIGHT!

      Under no circumstance should they but the Mk5 GTI wheels on that car. Those wheels do not fit one single body line.

      Best design I've seen outta VW in years. Wonder if they'll offer this in awd and nix the 4dr golf R.

      I doubt this will be offered in AWD, as that would take away from Audi sales, but what do I know. Would be nice to get it with AWD. Maybe the GLI-R will be made. Coupe, AWD, and a nice turbo setup, reasonable sticker, mmmm.

      Pretty but very bland. Appears to be the vacuous blonde of VWs. Basically the love child of the Audi A5 and Scion tC.

      This better not be the reason I can't have a Scirocco.

      I'm liking this A LOT! I'm gonna have to see what folks are saying in the car lounge. We'll see if even the anti-VW crowd who live there can admit that this is a good looking car.


      Edit: Aaand I'm back...pretty much what I expected in there...
      A few folks comparing it to the Accord coupe. I still really like the current Accord coupe, and can see some similarities, but the proportions and chiseled finish of this VW are much better executed.

      and dam straight!!! i was gonna say they need to brin the GLX back, even if its not AWD which like previously mentioned prolly would never happen. but a vr would be nice... it seems like all of us VR6 ppl have been left hanging in the wind over the past few years. i mean yea cool turbo yaaaaaa (not), but what about a mean muscely na car that weve been missing out on for how long now.... im seriously starting to feel alienated with this boost bull****..... but overall HELL YES, this model is exactly how to save the jetta from genaric mundane hell

      "We think they are fairly serious this time and this concept is an opportunity for Volkswagen to get feedback."

      Thread is comprised of as consistently positive set of replies you could ever hope for (other than the threads for the non-existent 2 seater VW periodically temps us with). For a Jetta product, I doubt there has ever been as warm a welcome. 2 or 4 door, these will sell.

      I agree with this as well. I've never seen such a warm inviting response from other enthusiasts about other Jetta designs/concepts. This is truly exciting, and hopefully we're graced with said concept in a few months.

      2010 Silver TDI JSW
      01-11-2010 05:07 PM #93
      I've been trying to figure out where the money was coming from for a new JSW, but now I may just have to wait another year for this one. My guess is that VW will follow the same exasperating release schedule they did for the MKVI Golf and TDI JSW. I have to have a TDI and still wonder why VW is pushing the TSI/hybrid instead of TDI/hybrid. Might get at least another 10 mpg out of it. Also want to see how they incorporate this design into a wagen.

      First, let me say what a beautiful vehicle this is. Perhaps a tad less jaw dropping than the CC, but nonetheless, a beautifully elegant and classically styled coupe design. It makes me want to literally run down to my local dealer and plunk down the deposit just to be amongst the first to own one. Bravo, Volkswagen!

      My only concern, is with the size. In the photos with the four gentlemen standing around the car, it appears that the NCS is very low and not all that big. It actually looks lower than the current GTI and CC. I hope that I'm wrong, but my guess is that it's about the size of the Scion coupe. Anyone think otherwise or have any insights into where this vehicle might stack up size-wise against the current Golf or CC?

      Thanks in advance for your comments

      Must have the Coupe.

      I think this is the best VW coupe design ever. I will buy this if it is released

      Very pretty!
      Lots of similarities in design to the A5/S5 on a smaller scale.
      Well executed. I say build it! Just make sure it has an AWD option!

      From Jamie himself (my bold):

      "Ok here is the deal...
      This "New Compact Coupe" Concept will be shown tomorrow (Monday) at the Detroit Auto Show. It is basically what the new Jetta VI/NCS will look like but with only two doors. The concept has a TSI/Hybrid powertrain in it which follows the same path as most of VW's other more recent concepts (Eco themes).

      Remove the concept headlamps, hybrid grill, show car wheels and add the rear doors and you'll have the new Jetta VI which goes on sale later this year. Wheelbase is up 3 inches, overall length is slightly shorter and width is about the same as the current Jetta - so the wheels are pushed out to the corners more and the front and rear overhangs are less.

      Starting price point with the new Jetta will be $17k or slightly less. VW is giving some serious consideration to a Jetta Coupe this time around, so who knows what will happen. There are even rumors of an "R" version of the Jetta this time around. However AWD isn't tooled yet at the factory, so we'll have to see how things progress. This new Jetta will also be sold in Germany.

      The styling is going to be different than I think most people expect. There is some Audi A4 and A5, some CC and generally a decent look to the car. DeSilva and the rest of the VW design team are finally getting things back on track after the chrome shield debacle.

      Photos of the Coupe Concept will officially be out after 10:30am ET Monday. However I wouldn't be surprised if the embargo breaks before then. We'll have a rendering of the Jetta Sedan that is very accurate shortly after the embargo breaks.

      -jamie"

      Concept cars are usually shown with larger wheels, and usually are fitted with shortened springs for a lower, more aggressive stance. I'd expect the production version --and, given the competition, VW would be DAMN FOOLISH not to produce and sell this Jetta Coupe in the US of A!-- to have normal amounts of ground clearance and suspension jounce room.

      Consider the concept cars' stance as a preview for what we vortexers can -and certainly will- do with them!

      Also......comparing the coupe/sedan photos, it appears that both use the same upper roof, rear window and trunk lid. If that's correct, both the coupe and sedan Jetta VIs will be the same length, which should be slightly larger than a Scion.


      [/QUOTE]

      If the quality and performance of this new Jetta are top-rate, I'll give this a double thumps up.

      Comparing this to the spy shots of the standard Jetta being tested I can see differences in the roofline, rear glass, door handles, etc. The standard Jetta is not simply going to be this car plus two more doors. The coupe has a lower roofline and is tapered more gradually in the back. The differences are small but noticeable.
