This looks hotter than the BMW 1er 135i I'm considering... Damn now I'm forced to wait (I can save more $ too) which can be a great thing for my next car purchase.
Again Volkswagen you did a great job with this "concept" Jetta.
Keep the LED's in those headlamps

That is a very beautiful design! It looks like it should be rear wheel drive though IMO....or at least 4Motion...please?
I like the idea of the return of the 2.slow as well as the hybrid concept. I'd definetly drive a Hybrid like this no problem.

i like everything but....
1.) the bottom part of the front grill... the large shark looking inlets and oversized grill are too much, would look cleaner if it were more like the TDI golf
2.) the large rounded rear glass... looks good on the coupe version, but odd on the sedan, hopefully they will make the glass a little smaller and less round with slightly more trunk (similar to the diff between the A5 and A4)
Contrarian view: I hate it.
The front and back end are attractive enough, but the profile is almost as impractical as the dreaded CC (which I've seen only in show rooms, never on the road). That plunging roofline reduces visibility and fights you when entering and exiting and handling car seats. As others mentioned, the short trunk opening will choke on squarish objects. To me, it's overstyled and underfunctional. Another reason why I'll probably own or want another new VW.
They'll probably sell a one of them of course, who value styling statements. And I'll be driving a MINI, or a Cube, or my Beetle TDI, or something less chic-sleek.
Call this one the Scirocco, and I'll say, "Good job." But this roofline on a sedan, forget about it.

A turbo 5 cylinder R jetta would be perfect .

I do not think that makes business sense because with that, it will go into A5 price range category and therefore, you might as well get an A5.
What VW lacks is a coupe (such as the NCC) that sells for less than or around a 1-series coupe to slot between Japanese (more economical) and other German coupes (more expensive).
If they released an R in this....it would pull me away from my beloved GTI.
and that my friends, is a very hard thing to do.
after a horribly designed 5th generation, Volkswagen has redeemed themselves.
