VW Teases the Upcoming Jetta

With the redesigned Jetta coming out at the start of next year, Volkswagen has started its teasing regimen.

Volkswagen’s Canadian website now features a pretty revealing gif of the Jetta. Although bathed in darkness, the animated gif shows a light moving over the car, showing off some of its lines and, well, it looks an awful lot like a Jetta.

The grille is a little different, the headlights a little more angled, and the roof a little more raked, but there’s nothing earth-shattering here, something we already knew because of a leak a few months back.

Our very own Chris Compton found out earlier this year that the Mk7 Jetta would premiere at the North American International Auto Show, at the beginning of January. Volkswagen’s North American president Hinrich Woebcken described it as “super modern” “strong” and “emotional.”

“We have given the car a North American ‘touch’ but not always in terms of low cost and less content, but in much more specific needs of the market,” said Woebcken. “The Jetta will be, for me, a symbolic statement that Volkswagen is changing by really allowing to listen to American customers, American dealers, what the market needs.”

Rumors also suggest that an R-Line will be available from launch and that a GLI will be offered about a year later.
