    Thread: New Compact Coupe Concept

    1. 01-11-2010 11:32 PM #141
      So this is based on Polo and not Golf/current Jetta platform, correct?

    2. 01-12-2010 12:08 AM #142
      Now that's a good looking (future) Jetta!

      Volkswagen, release the car exactly as in the pics (except with 4 doors) and you'll have people buying these in droves just like you had with the MKIV.

      Who needs a Scirocco in the States when we can have this? 2.0T and I'm happy. Not even tripping over 4WD. This thing is gorgeous.

      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.

      That is a great looking car! I have always dreamed of an R-series Jetta coupe.

      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.

      WOW! "F"ing beautiful! the coupe and sedan are awesome. VW just keeps on maturing... good job!

      I want my wife to get the sedan and hopefully, HOPEFULLY there will be an "R" version of the coupe that I would certainly get no doubt about it.

      I really like the lines and the proportions. The short overhangs look really good. I wonder if the production version will have bigger wheel gaps. Hopefully it turns out looking just like the concept so it'll save us all some money and time on buying lowering springs

      The new Golf Wagon is already on sale. (Oh yes, in the US it's called a Jetta Wagon.)

      why doese everyone want a hybrid???? screw a hybrid, thats what blue motion is for!!!!! seriously , has anyone ever though about what will happen to all the lead in those rediculously hudge batterys, your a fool if you think its all going to be properly disposed of. yea the air is cleaner, but who cares if we can breath if the whole dam world goes infertal!!!!

      long story short, screw the hybrid, leave it for the Japanese, TDI is the ONLY option VW should be looking at and the ONLY option you all should be supporting!

      ahhhhhh, the sweet smell of show season

      A coupe in a vw is great move. EOS was cool but really attracted girls, not being mean cause 3 of my friends that are girls have them.

      very nice...


      But...

      don't make the front windshield as sloped as the CC and provide the option for 5 seats. Of course AWD would be a nice option as well. I'm really out growing the FWD stuff.

      If the Golf R is abound they'll need to mate AWD + 2.0T + 6spd man in this coupe for me to decide really, as both will probably hit stateside by the time I'm ready to buy something. I'd rather see that setup in the coupe but if not I'll prob go with the R, depending on fundage.

      The car is on MSN's homepage... Read below.


      "Volkswagen furthered its outspoken commitment to lower fuel consumption by unveiling a number of efficient concepts and models today at the 2010 North American International Auto Show here in Detroit. The most impressive of these is the hybrid New Compact Coupe, marking VW's first committed foray into hybrid drivetraintechnology.

      Up till now, the German automaker has largely placed its bets on clean diesel as the fuel of the future. The New Compact Coupe is capable of up to 45 mpg, thanks to an efficient 1.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine and a powerful electric motor. How powerful? Volkswagen says the combined output should be close to 177 horsepower. That means that unlike the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight, this gas-electric hybrid might turn out to be a machine people may actually enjoy driving.

      Volkswagen has nestled that robust electric motor between the gasoline engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox to maximize efficiency and allow the two powerplants to complement each other when a little extra grunt is needed. Even better, the New Compact Coupe can be operated in full electric mode. Volkswagen has also incorporated a number of innovative fuel-saving technologies, including completely disengaging the gasoline motor from the transmission during coasting and using brake energy to restore battery power while on the go. Start/stop technology also finds its way into the gasoline engine.

      Providing electricity is a lithium-ion battery positioned at the rear of the vehicle. The rearward location helps maintain the coupe's handling characteristics.

      So far, Volkswagen hasn't said much in terms of production plans for the New Compact Coupe, but given the car's largely positive reception and mainstream styling, it wouldn't surprise us to see at least some part of the New Compact Coupe make it into Volkswagen showrooms — even if that immediately means only hybrid versions of the Golf and Jetta.

      The company also brought its R-Line version of the swooping CC sedan, which debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall."

      The only batteries that contain lead are those in the engine compartment of all of our cars. Hybrid batteries do not contain lead. They are metal alloys of either litium or magnesium. The weight of a lead battery that size would eliminate the efficinecy of the hybrid engine. Although, I still have a concern for recycling those metal alloy battereis. Just give me a TDI.

      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?

      I'm with you on that one...One of the reasons wife and I are looking into a hatch is the kind-of-small trunk opening on her A4. This new Jetta looks great, but as you said notchback version would be more user friendly.

      I was wondering about this too since what the rest of the world calls a Golf Estate is called a Jetta SportWagen here in North America. The JSW was just restyled for '10 to match the Golf VI and yet a new Jetta sedan will debut later this year and will look completely different than the JSW.
