According to a report published yesterday by Auto Bild , Volkswagen is looking to make the next-generation Jetta a bit larger than the outgoing car, and style it using design elements from the New Midsize Coupe concept shown last year.  Volkswagen says that the current Jetta is a bit too small for the current world market, and expanding the car to be a bit closer to the Passat in size would allow more potential buyers to consider it.  Along with the increase in physical size, the car would also come with a more upscale interior and infotainment system to appeal to more upscale buyers.

What we do know, is that the new car will move to Volkswagen's MQB platform and will therefore likely be produced for the North American market in Puebla, Mexico.  From what we're hearing, we will begin to see the vehicle in concept form shortly, with a full production model coming sometime in 2017.
