      There is no way that's the mk7, given VW's current design direction.

      Plus, looks awful.

      PS. And detroits again?! lol

      It's probably a rendering of the MKVI

      The worst bit for me is those mirrors.

      This is obviously, un-objectionably a fake, like the hundreds of others floating around the internet and appearing on magazines (except that this one is one of the worst I've seen so far, and it doesn't seem current based on spy shots revealed over the past year). Even Car & Driver did a rendering a year or so ago. What do they have in common? None of them are real.

      The only thing that we do know is that there is a strong MkI-IIish crease running along the doors below the handle. This we've seen in various spy shots. All recent photoshop predictions have shown this detail, but no real pictures have surfaced.

      Slightly unrelated, I'm hoping that VW will facelift the MkVI Jetta to match whatever the new Golf's styling will be.

      No way are those mirrors right, and no way are those wheels and tires right. Credibility = 0, disregard. This ain't it.

      That magazine looks like a tabloid and it is trolling people to pick it up. Its got a BS pic of a GTI VII, mention of Steve McQueen and girls, something declaring the M5 was tested and LOST, and another panel declaring their best muscle car ever winner is a surprise.

      It just missed out against the E63AMG.

      Sorry guys, thought this was it until I read through it.

      is it just me, or do the even numbered Mk's look better than the odd numbered? Recently...
      I love the mk1 and mk3, but the mk2, 4, and 6 are just smoother and seem more refined...
      Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

      The front lip screams new civic to me for some reason. Anyone else? The headlights resemble the current Jetta, which I personally approve of. Wouldn't complain if the headlights made it to production.

      I agree, it looks like a honda. It also looks like a bigger version of the VW Fox.

      I agree. I think that the odd generation cars have usually introduced a new look, often awkwardly in some way. The even generation cars have always taken that new look and smoothed it out, modernized it, etc.

      MkI = super square. MkII = still square, but with tastefully tapered fenders.

      MkIII = new, smaller grilles and body-colored bumpers, still square. MkIV = smoother, rounder, more integrated take on the smaller grilles and body-colored bumpers.

      MkV = circles within circles everywhere, "me, too" styling. MkVI = canned the copycat circles, muscled-up body panels and headlights.

      its got to be a fake, looks more like the civic type r front lower bumper :

      Then don't worry, because as noted in several posts in this thread, THIS IS NOT REAL.
