ACCORDING TO a report by US magazine Car & Driver, Volkswagen North America CEO Stefan Jacoby has confirmed that the the company's upcoming 'New Compact Sedan' will wear a Jetta badge.
The new Jetta - previously a sedan version of the Golf hatch - is expected to debut at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. Recent spy photos reveal that the new Jetta will bear styling in line with Volkswagen's newer models.
Snapped undergoing hot weather testing in the US, the heavily-camouflaged new Jetta, while giving away little at the front and rear ends, reveals the same sharpened styling of its Golf stablemate along its flanks.
The new Jetta will likely carry the family face established by the Scirocco and the new Golf VI.
The rear end, seen in the following photo, clearly features a tail-light design quite different ot the Golf but one that will likely follow VW?s new design language.
Interior styling is likely to be largely identical to the Golf. For power, we can expect the new Jetta to be motivated by the same engine options offered in the new Golf, including TSI petrol and TDI diesel options.
