    Thread: New Compact Coupe Concept

    1. 01-16-2010 10:07 AM #301
      I love this car! VW should build this coupe. Although I'd buy it as a 4 dr or a 2 dr, this looks stunning & the size sounds about right for me. If VW can make a coupe that's a little lighter than the current gen, which is great for performance & fuel milage, at least give an option for a slightly stiffer sport suspension then this car would be #1 on my list.
      Even as is though, I think they have a homerun with this one.

      A+++ on the new Jetta Coupe if VW ever brings it
      (IMO: the 4dr is better looking then the new A4)

      I don't know if this was addressed but how do you guys know the NCS is the new Jetta? I heard that VW is going to offer a "new compact" in between the Jetta and CC.
      We all can see that car is way too nice to be a Jetta, right. That coupe has to be a standalone model.
      When I first heard about the EOS I thought it was going to be the new Cabrio with an MSRP of around $18-24,000 like the 2002 models that were well equipped but it turned out to be around $32-35 grand!
      Anyway if the Jetta turns out looking like this.. which all signs point to yes, do you still want it?


      or does it still look big, heavy and boring?
      if you look closely at the camouflage you can see the fog lights and grille coming through just like in the above rendering.

      This is an early test prototype of the of the NCS (New Compact Sedan). The NCS "is" the MKVI Jetta and has been confirmed by the president of VWOA in several interviews recently. It will be built at the Pueblo, Mexico facility and is expected to go on sale in the fall of 2010 as a 2011 model. It is expected to be very similar to the NCC (New Compact Coupe) that was presented at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show this week. However, it will not be merely a 4-door version of the presented NCC. According to this IndsideLine article posted a few days ago http://www.insideline.com/volk....html , and close examination of all the spy shots here http://www.autoblog.com/galler...l/#16, the NCS will have a slightly more of an overall upright glass housing with more front windshield angle, less sporty more oval roofline, more rear glass angle and a more horiz, less sloped trunk. Other things noticed from the spy pics were round door handles, no integrated rear lip spoiler, and oval shaped geometry in top portion of rear lights instead of angled. Overall, though the NCS will likely resemble NCC in the same way, the BMW 3 series sedans resemble the coupes or an A4 resembles an A5.

      This is a MV5 Jetta with a Golf TDI front end and door handles photoshopped on. It is not what the MKVI Jetta (aka NCS) will look like.

      I think the coupe idea was great. Its always nice to have variety and this model is indeed hot! As far as I know, VW has been reaching out to their grey areas, and this coupe model is certainly a good way to start.

      "Official specs, features and options haven't been released but we've heard rumors of a new 2.0l four-cylinder normally aspirated base engine, 2.0T and TDI options. There will be higher trim model cars similar to the current Jetta and the GLI will return in the Jetta VI, albeit with an even more aggressive look."
      I know its early but does anyone know any details on the rumored new 2.0L four cylinder? (HP, torque, etc..). Also any ideas on transmissions for the new 2.0L four cylinder? (7sp DSG?) I'm really looking forward to hearing some specs on the new Jetta. I love the look of the 4 door shown!!!

      Well it's about time VW went back to it's roots with body styling, the interior was never a question.

      VW has always been overpriced and under performing.. The MKV jetta is the only exception w/ it's 5cly 170hp engine for $~18-20k. It's like Nintendo, over priced and under performing as well but because of their clean image they outsell all other console manufacturers.
      I love how the VW site is always like "people want german performance w/o the german price tag" lololol a Passat costs almost as much as a BMW3 or A4 if equipped with similar options. In either case, the difference is negligible (10-15%). I'd say we're still paying a hefty price for the overinflated euro.
      german..american.... it's all made assembled by mexicans and designed by asians.
      anyway I also was hoping it would have a unique design like the current passat, rather than being a poor persons A4

      the CC is a joke. For $33
      for $40 grand
      $33 grand for a 4 cylinder that does 0-60 in 7.5 seconds? hah! THe only thing worse VW pumped out recently other than the CC would be the Phaeton. Plus the CC's back end is hideous, actually the whole thing reeks

      The way the sheet metal is bent and the price the dealer charges you are related by VW marketing. When we start talking about luxury features for the price VW is a good value for the most part. It is the basic cars that are difficult to make money on. VW charges more for basic cars and upgrades the interiors and handling because they can't compete at the bottom end on price in the US market. I have been driven in some very low end VWs that were made in China. The Us would not support VWs low low low end product. VW offers cars that have good handling and aspire to a higher level than average when they are doing it correctly.
      The upper end Phaeton is a great car for the price. I would not purchase one for myself because the parts are going to be expensive to replace. A friend I work with had two of them and loved both but did not want to keep them past the lease.
      The trouble with internet arguments is that many will change the direction of the conversation to keep the argument alive. If we want findings we need to structure the categories.
      At this point the main topic is the MK6 Jetta. We can see the style direction. I like it. VW marketing will set the price. If we think the price is worth it and the car fits our requirements some of us will pay to drive the car. That is how it works.

      Mexican built Jettas are shipped to Germany for Europe so it's possible.
      Possible, but why would VW do it? Why would they build a car in Mexico, ship it to Germany, to deliver it to you, then ship it back to North America.

      You just registered on this site recently and have only 18 posts to your name, most of which seem to serve the purpose of stirring the pot in this particular thread. Pardon the regulars here if it appears that you might be trolling.
      So, assuming you own a Mk5 Jetta, do you like the car at all? Or do you feel that all of the VW products are terrible? Reading your posts, I'm left confused as to your original purpose here...

      Very very nice.
      One quibble. Due to the slope of the rear window, the trunk opening on my MKV Jetta is terribly small. Is it too much to hope this is a hatchback in a notchback shape?

      IN addition to the below post....
      Don't you think you could go to Germany for less(than the price of a car)?
      Besides I'm not sure that anything could match the experience that BMW offers at "Die Welt".

      The Jetta, Passat and Tiguan are the only cars I would ever consider buying from VW. Everything else is overpriced and under performing.
      The GTI/GLI/ are weak sports cars (beaten by Mazdaspeed3, Si (lulz), WRX, Sentra SE-R, Calibur SRT, Cobalt SS) and the R32 is a whopping $35g (which you can buy a REAL sports car with.. ie. 370z, G37, Genesis Coupe 3.8). The 200hp l4 CC is easily beaten by the Accord V6 and Altima SR 3.5 w/prem package(options like touch start, push button entry, Bixenon headlamps) for under $30g. VW doesn't know luxury status and probably never will. Lets talk about the $40g CC that actually boasts some performance. It too is trumped by other $40g cars in it's price range (IS350 AWD, M35 AWD, 335i xd, Genesis AWD, even Maxima) for a couple grand more.
      As for me, I think the Jetta MK5 is great. It's an awesome blend of luxury, performance, handling and value and style. Leatherette, Rims, 6 spd DSG and 5cyl 170 hp for under ~$20g but everything else is bordering sad and VW is trying to ride their wave of success without looking at the supreme offerings from their competition.
      As for the current jetta I was hoping it would have more VW aesthetic and less Audi.
      But if I could do it over I would obviously pay more and get a used G35.
