This Is What the VW Jetta Will Look Like in 2015
This is most obvious with the Golf, which strangely will be kept in production both as the MkVI and the MkVII. This was probably a premeditated move, or at least that’s what we think when we check out just how similar the two models look.
Since the technology developed for the 2013 Golf VII is so good at saving weight and cutting on fuel costs. It’s unlikely the current Jetta will survive for very long, even though it entered production in 2010.
Here’s a rendering created by Theophilus Chin created of what the Jetta VII codenamed A7 will likely look like, following the line of the new Golf. The MQB platform will help it shed about 100 kilos and cylinder deactivation should make this into the most efficient compact sedan on the market.
The only problem is there’s no market for the Jetta VII. VW has been forced to cut its profit outlook on Europe, while the US will not replace its Golf for at least two years.
