Phaeton

And the front end design takes after the A8 design.


I don't like it, but to each his own.

Both new Jetta and Passat look like squashed VW New Beetles... sad.. Oh well, can never have enough gay mobiles on the road i guess.

Passat is gonna loose 'business drivers' big time with that look too. Backside looks like a Corrolla with a bad rear light day too.. VW is dead (if they aren't already, right Mr. Executive who is gonna fire _30,000_ peoples?).

Your on the money on that. That new factory where they are buiding the Pheaton cost them a shit load. Now no one is buying them, in fact. Their sales overall don't look good becasue of their high prices. VW's idea was to get into high end cars. I guess it back fired.

Looks pretty good. Definitely some similarities to the TSX in the profile.

It looks like it has a fat ass. At least if the front is anything like the new Golf, it should look good.

well, it has to suck to be a VW designer... the history of designs and the designers that you have to live up to...

J May most recently, but lets not forget that VW tapped Karmenn Ghia for the car of same name, and also for the original GTI, which was a concept from Giorgio Giugiaro of Italdesign...

Along with such memorable past cars like the original Beetle (by Ferdinand Pierch... founder of Porsche) and the microvan, it's hard to follow up...

Junkster, who thinks J May is turning Ford into VW

I don't think so... to me it looks like something Toyota has cooked up.... and thier designs are always hard to swallow.

So far I'm dissappointed, but I guess I should wait for the final product before making a judgement. I really like the Jetta, well I used to before it was ranked the #1 car!

Well, the front will probably look the same as this pic for the Sharan...

http://carspyshots.proboards2.com/in...num=1097711605

If so, the front probably can't look bad. Still, looks prego or something...

Junkster, who wants to see the interior

edit: carspyshot is discussing the Corolla look as well

That car looks awfully big...I have no doubt it's a Jetta, but it looks like it's the size of a Passat. I think the new Passat is going to be one large car...

Looks like a Corolla on steroids. I bet it's roomy inside, though. And it doesn't look that bad, actually.

That previous shot, I agree, that's not the Jetta, it's the Passat.

Looks like VW/Audi is planning to upsize the competition...new A6 is larger than all of its midsize competitors, and now they're going to repeat that with the Passat and Jetta.

Interesting pics...I'm thinking it might be the new Passat as well. This year is the last year for the current style. Or...it may just be the Jetta. Anyways...the designers took very similiar line ques from the VW Flagship - Phaeton. All in all, not bad. I will wait like some of you all and reserve final judgement until I see the production model.

Official pic.......in old man tan.


AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Volkswagen today released the first official photos of its all-new Jetta, which goes on sale this coming March in the U.S. and Canada.

The Jetta model is Volkswagen’s most popular in the U.S., accounting for about 40 percent of the brand’s overall volume in this market. It is perennially the number-one selling European nameplate sold in the U.S.

The photos released today show a completely redesigned Jetta sedan, and depict the fifth generation of the German automaker’s sedan that first went on sale in 1980 in the U.S.

Set to make its worldwide public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on January 5, 2005 where its price will also be announced, the new Jetta will be a significant evolution of this Volkswagen model that celebrates its 25th year in the U.S. and Canada in 2005. During that time, it has generated sales of more than 2.2 million units in those markets.

Like its predecessors, the new Jetta will offer a distinct choice in the compact sedan market. The new Jetta has bold dynamic styling and larger dimensions than its predecessor. As always, the Jetta’s styling, technology and European character will attract people who love to drive and desire something different. As expected, this sophisticated Jetta also offers traditional Volkswagen value for the money.

Since the Jetta’s introduction in 1980, this compact, affordable German sports sedan has evolved significantly with each new design. This new Jetta is no exception: it has grown in size from the previous model, while again offering a more advanced level of German engineering and technology that is unique in its competing market segment.

Drivers of the new Jetta will enjoy the model’s first fully independent suspension system that uses a multi-link rear and optimized front axle, a new powerful base engine with a larger displacement of 2.5 liters and five-cylinders generating 150 horsepower (versus a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 115 hp engine in the previous model), a new optional six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic including a special “sport” mode selection.

In addition, later in the year, Volkswagen will offer its revolutionary transmission called DSG (TDI only), which is essentially an automated manual transmission system offering the inherent efficiency and economy of a manual with the ease of operation of an automatic. Also among the most impressive new driving advancements are a standard high-tech electro-mechanical steering system, a new technically advanced electronic stability program (ESP), and new-generation ABS all-disc brakes.

The new Jetta’s interior will be roomier than ever with a larger trunk and more legroom and occupant space. As one expects from a modern Volkswagen, the new Jetta will offer a highly refined interior treatment, with a long list of standard comfort and convenience features. Some of the safety features for the new Jetta include front side thorax airbags, Side Curtain Protection (for head) in front and rear, crash-active front headrests, crash-optimized foot pedals that descend upon serious impact, Daytime Running Lights (DRL), three-point safety belts at every position, adjustable headrests for all five occupants, front belt pre-tensioners with load limiters, and safety belts with emergency locking retractors complete this all-new Jetta sedan.

Built for worldwide distribution at Volkswagen’s high-tech production facility in Puebla, Mexico, the Jetta’s assembly process promises to set quality standards for this model segment. Volkswagen AG invested extensively to further advance the modern assembly sequences and technologies at its sole North American site—a facility that according to internal quality audits ranks as one of the Volkswagen Group’s top factories in the world.

The new Jetta has a stronger body than its predecessor, recording double-digit improvements in its dynamic and torsional rigidity. This is achieved through the use of more high-strength body panels, world-class design and engineering, and an advanced, highly automated, laser-welding system. The result is a dramatic increase in laser-welded seams--nearly 14 times more than the previous Jetta. The net benefit of this bonding process is a class-leading fit and finish, improved body strength, crash protection, driving dynamics, and reduced interior noise.

This all-new Jetta once again documents Volkswagen’s attention to detail, unique driving dynamics, high-energy looks and quality materials to match and exceed the expectations of the North American customer.
