It's horrible if you ask me... Passat face, Passat rims, Audi A3 lateral and Audi TT back (at least from the picture). Total lack of imagination. Just like the new Polo...

Hope I haven't broken anyone's feelings.

Well the first one is some kind of photoshop, since that car wouldnt actually run on streets with no clearance betw the 25 inch wheels and frame. And I agree the second one is ugly as sin. . . but it would be cool to have some kind of Scirocco.

I like the yellow one. I wonder if the re-introduction of the Scirocco will hurt the value of my 87 16V....

Technically, that would be a Passat wagon.

I think it looks fairly nice. Is the world ready yet for a diesel sports car? It has an interesting range of engines. The 1.4 TSI is one gas engine I'd love to see over here. A 2.0 TDI has serious grunt. Read my trip report about my 1500 miles behind the wheel of a Seat Altea with the 2.0 TDI (138 hp/236 lb-ft, six-speed manual). It had a really solid chassis and was downright sporty to drive.

If Audi can win races with a TDI, then just maybe the world is ready for a TDI sports coupe.
