Volkswagen Files Design Patents for Jetta Coupe - CarScoop

Found on the trademark office, are these patent drawings of the Volkswagen Jetta Coupe, or as the German automaker named the concept version of the car at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the NCC (New Compact Coupe).

Those skimming the photos may notice a couple of changes over the concept model that was motivated by a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain. These include the more production like grille and addition of fog lamps up front, and the visible exhaust tail pipes at the back.

The fact that Volkswagen filed these drawings doesn't guarantee that the company will go ahead and produce what we like to call, the poor-man's Audi A5. However, since Volkswagen has no plans to bring the Scirocco to the States and given that the NCC is more or less a coupe version of the all-new Jetta, we can't see why it shouldn't make it into production. Any thoughts?

lots of PIX

VW and Audi are falling behind, this is something you could see in the 1990's car without navigation..
dunno if I was brainwashed by this interior pic

but
does anyone else see this Jetta as a sorta plainjane 9/10ths scale first-gen Milan??


...wonder how long it will take VW to start using waterfall grilles

I guess it's official - the coupe is back... Everybody's got a coupe now. That interior does look very plain. I don't know what they're thinking. On the other hand, I think Audi is still doing fine. They still have some really nice interiors. Simple, but elegant...
