CAR Magazine in the UK recently learned that Volkswagen is adamant about expanding the lineup of the Jetta to include as many as three or four variants.
According to this latest report, that lineup will include a sedan, a wagon, and a crossover Alltrack variant for the next generation. So far, all three of these variants have been approved for production. Some reports and rumors in the past have suggested a four-door coupe version of the Jetta to follow in the footsteps of the Passat CC to essentially make a Jetta CC. This was also previewed by the recent “New Midsize Coupe Concept” from earlier this year.
The new Jetta be based off of Volkswagen’s latest MQB modular platform, allowing engineers to increase the size of the Jetta to offer more interior legroom. Power will still be provided by a range of potent four-cylinder gas and diesel engines.
Europe will be the first to receive the completely redesigned Jetta and as a result, CAR postulates sometime in the second half of 2016 as a 2017 model. The US will most likely receive the Jetta later in 2017 as a 2018 model.
