It is interesting to watch small cars marketed to North America grow a little in size with each generational change. Just as small cars from Japan grew from the late 1970’s to today (Camry, Accord, Civic, Corolla, etc), so did the small German Volkswagen Jetta Sedan. From the 1980’s it has grown into a very comfortable midsized sedan (still called ‘compact class’), and looks to be adding another couple of inches again next year. In June the next generation Jetta was announced as a 2011 model and I wanted to include a video announcement teaser below (previous post). One pleasant surprise is that according to reports the price will be going down as well …and Volkswagen Group of America will continue to offer the popular 2.0 liter TDI turbocharged direct injected diesel in North America too.
