Meet the Volkswagen
. Okay, that's not really it's name (VW calls it the New Midsize Coupe Concept
), but this sleek, four-door coupe draws more than a little inspiration from the CC while riding on VW's MQB platform
It's a looker, we think, and is an eye-pleasing departure from the bland styling of the current Jetta
. The sleeker front end is complemented by a wider body overall (it's wider than a Passat
), while the more sporting roofline and the sharp rear fascia gives the New Midsize Coupe a decidedly sporting character. LED head- and taillights add a bit more personality to this already stylish design.
Thanks to its 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, it should get along rather sportingly, as well. The run to 62 miles per hour takes just 6.5 seconds thanks to the 217 horsepower on offer. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is also fitted, and contributes to an estimated 37 miles per gallon.
