The 2010 Detroit Auto Show will open its doors to the press Monday morning, and Volkswagen will be showing something for sure. Word on the Internet is that you're looking at it. Those thick black lines above supposedly illustrate a Jetta coupe that will go by the not-so-clever name of New Compact Coupe. This blurry sketch surfaced on the web Saturday, and while we can't say whether or not it's the real deal, through the haze it does appear to be a Scirroco-like coupe.

Why is it so blurry? We have no idea, and we're close enough to the show now that this Etch-A-Sketch, even if accurate underneath, will be moot in about 24 hour's time. So just hold on a little while longer and we'll bring you everything that's worth knowing from Detroit in due time.

      smaller A5-ish coupe... interesting, though i love the Scirocco
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow. That's, um... really exciting.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's blurry so you can't see the "check engine light"...
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's very BMW 6ish.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Please, please, please let it be a new Corrado!
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's a coupe based on the Polo. A piece of speculation that I read recently was that the new Jetta was, in fact, Polo-based. So this might be considered to be a Jetta Coupe by it's nomenclature, but the front end is 100 unaltered VW Polo.

      The lines look a little chunky to me...

      seriously though, it looks like the new CC Coupe or CCC
        • 5 Years Ago
        It won't be compact if it's a CC, it'll be on the same platform, or perhaps the eos setup, either way it'll be as big as a jetta or larger. Just an odd prospect, it'll have a 2.0T or V6, same as the A5, and, undoubtedly, cost less... so why step on the A5's toes?
        • 5 Years Ago
        a compact CC coupe would be awesome. would get me back in a VW

      VW: "Let's generate some buzz by leaking a photo! But we can't completely reveal it... oh I know, let's run it through ten Photoshop sketch filters! That'll do the trick!"
        • 5 Years Ago
        Betcha right before NAIAS, there would be another/better "pic leak" of this NCC...fingers X'ed.
        • 5 Years Ago
        lol, sounds about right, normally VAG's a bit more tactful, taking cars out to college campuses for 'photo shoots' :P

      With the rear tires 2x wide as the fronts this is a RWD coupe to compete with the Genesis Coupe and FT86!!

      Maybe not but I can dream.

        • 5 Years Ago
        Exactly what I was thinking. If this is RWD, I'll be all over it. Strongly doubt it though. :(
      • 5 Years Ago
      New corrado?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Some of us can only wish. New Corrado would be nice.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'm loving the general shape of it. For the first time in ages, I'm actually stoked about a VW, mainly because (as far as I know) it hasn't been written off as being availble in North America.
        • 5 Years Ago
        yes, looks to be a passat cc coupe, which is entertaining, given the whole four door coupe business. Anywho, a VW branded A5 could do quite well. If it's under 30 to start, comes with the 2.0T, maybe even the V6, it'd be a nice A5 on a budget. Which begs the question of why VW would step on the A5's toes with this.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Just give us the damned Polo TDI 1.4 in the USA!!!! I want an inexpensive, economical, subcompact diesel two door!
      • 5 Years Ago
      it does appear to be very sirocco-like, but with the show so close does anyone even care to try and match them up. VW might as well have just given us a picture of a headlight like we normally get, it would have been more interesting...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Very Scirocco like...
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think they should just bring over the damn scirocco.
