I just saw a new Jetta on my way to work this morning. From what I can see, there are many styling cues that are similar to the 9³, especially the greenhouse. What do you think?

It's all grown up now...kind of. That's your advertising slogan VW!?! You saying your old Jetta was childish?
Not a good move.

:thumbsdown: on the "new and improved" Jetta.

I don't like it. But then again the "good" engines haven't come out yet. And did I hear they're thinking of an awd performance model, a-la r32?

At least I hope the new Jetta drives better than the Corolla. I got a Corolla CE as a rental once, and it was by far the worst passenger car I have ever driven (this does not include SUV's and trucks, as I find them inevitably worse)

:evil:

I loved the 04-05 Jetta GLI's and now looking at this makes me want to hurl. But I am trying to save my judgement till see them more and more.

I doubt I will like it ever though:cry:

That's disappointing. I seriously want to know what some people are thinking when they design cars. Don't they get out of their cubicle to get anyones opinion?

I kinda always liked the Jettas and Passats.. they were unique looking. Too bad they had to ruin it.

Well in this case apparently they were thinking...

"Well, Toyota seems to sell a lot of them there Corolla's! Let's just make it look like that! Ayup!".
Never realising people don't buy Corolla's because they LOOK GOOD.

I just saw one a week ago. Ugh! What an ugly, ugly car. Looks nowhere near what it did in the pics. So very Corolla.

Yeah, I was very dissapointed. the first second I saw the spy shots and stuff a few months ago, right away I thought of the Corolla. I don't get it. I had a 2001 Jetta GLX (V6 5sp), that was a fun car, it was just a fun to drive car and I thought it looked cool too, this car just doesn't do it for me. Even the interior photos I've seen seem to make the car look blander than before. I also had a 2003 Passat GLX (V6 5sp), that was fun and fast (sort of) too but I never thought it was all that good looking (thus getting rid of it after 5K miles). I think the new Passat (05' I guess?) is pretty sweet though. OK, I'll save the VW praise for another website. But yeah, VW has a potential nightmare on their hands with this one. I wonder how they'll recover? If they were trying to get grown up Jetta owners to evolve into this car, I think they were way wrong. I'm imagining a re-design fairly quickly - thrown together stuff, like new head and tailights... too bad. Great picture finklejag, definitely captured the moment.
