More amateur spy photos of the upcoming 2011 Volkswagen Jetta have been captured and so far the reaction probably isn’t what VW is looking for. The dull looking compact car in the photos is believed to be the next Jetta model, that VW has code-named the NCS (for New Compact Sedan).

Along with less-than-impressive looks the new Jetta is believed to be less premium than before, but larger to meet with the demands of U.S. consumers. It has also been reported that the next Jetta (at least North American models) will use a less-sophisticated torsion beam rear suspension. The up-side to all this is a significantly lower cost, with rumors that it will start at $14,950 – significantly less than the $17,735 entry price for a current Jetta model.

We’re hoping Volkswagen still has some design changes in mind for the model to give it a bit more flare. Otherwise, it’s no surprise to us why VW just bought a majority stake in Italian design firm Italdesign Giugiaro.

    Wow these comments and headlines are premature, I think this Jetta will be one of the hottest cars in its class. I can’t wait for its offical photos, I wount be shocked being that the NCC is basically this next generation Jetta. To call this car a piece of crap without knowing what it will truly look like, and its driving dynamics, and on top comparing it to a Hyundai, is purely laughable.

    As for the Sonata comment, the Sonata reminds me of the Toyoya Solara with its strange headlights, not to mention, it has the same basic design as all other makes in the market now, with its body lines accross the door panels like the Ford Fiesta, Mazda 3 and 6, Honda Accord. I have driven many cars including a test drive of the new Sonata (my grandmother needs a cheap car and so the sonata in this case is not a bad idea), and I am not impressed, it just does not compare to the driving dinamics of a VW. I love my current 2007 VW Jetta, in it I have the confidance to take on any road with its twists and turns, and uneven pavement. I LOVE my Jetta, and I know for a fact, that YOU and I will love this new one even more.
