    I dig the new look as well, but it doesn't hold a candle to the scirocco

    Scirocco makes me wet. I want one so damn bad. They are even cheaper then GTIs. I wish they would bring them over here.

    should be considered a facelift of the mkv. shares same platform, has same basic shape, etc, etc.

    A step down from the MKV. BUT TDI might be a redeeming quality. The backup camera is kinda cool. Sorta Jame Bond ish. :o
    Scirocco is FTW though. :bowdown:

    Lemme guess, no hybrid? Of course. Why use regenerative braking when you can piss away all that energy in the form of heat and brake dust?

    Is this version going to have Reliability as a standard option, or would I have to buy thousands in aftermarket parts to get that feature?

    VW is probably ruminating over a hybrid version. give them time to do a market analysis. for the US, it's not profitable; enough people don't look to VW that you'd find enough hybrid buyers in the x that already do. attracting more people to a brand that has always been less mainstream in America is no that easy. it's all about perception.
    In Europe a hybrid netting just 1-2mpg mroe than the 1.4L BlueTec this call will be sold with in europe is silly

    There is absolutely no justification, in my mind, to build a new car that doesn't have any sort of regenerative braking and dynamic engine shutoff. You want to meet CAFE 35 requirements in one shot? Add regenerative braking and dynamic engine shutoff, and your in-city mileage will instantly equal or exceed your highway mileage.

    It adds cost to car. Maybe as an option.

    We've gone over this in another thread. It might add cost to the purchase price, but it will reduce operating costs over the life of the car -- in the case of a plugin hybrid, it could even reduce operating costs so much that the batteries would pay for themselves in five years.

    That said, sure, make it an option, just like the TDI engine is an option.

    It's hard for me to accept that argument. Toyota and Honda developed hybrid systems a decade ago. Whose fault is it that nobody else realized how successful they'd be?

    That's Toyota and Honda.

    If VW did it, people would simply go ":ugh: I'm not paying THAT much for a VW"
