As you can see from the screen captures of the 2017 Geneva Volkswagen Press Conference. Volkswagen revealed the silhouette of the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta / FAW Volkswagen Sagitar.

The seventh generation Jetta will be revealed by the end of the year. VW NEWS BLOG believes in October at LA & Guangzhou (China) Auto Shows or an event prior to both shows.

If the screen capture is the new Jetta, the Jetta is screwed for sales. Why would they style the new car to look 10 years older than the current long-in-tooth-looking Jetta?

I'm skeptical, it looks like it's the same image as this: http://carplace.uol.com.br/volkswage...lo-sedan-2018/

Also, no way this would be any earlier than a 2019.

the Jetta needed a full replacement 5 years ago IMO given how terribly outdated it is.

Oh, how funny, I was about to post that it looks like a gigantic Polo sedan.

How do you explain the text of "Jetta" being in the pic, then? Do you think it's been photoshopped?

I actually wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the next Jetta already looks like a pre-existing VW design. Also, I think the current Jetta was unveiled/announed in mid-2010. A release for MY 2018 is actually not unreasonable.

No idea, but the Virtus pictures didn't have any text to go along with it.

FAW-VW sells a Skoda Rapid-derived sedan in China as the Jetta, which is likely the cause of the confusion here. The Rapid shares the Polo's platform, so it's not surprising the next Chinese FAW-VW Jetta will likely just become a Polo sedan:

The FAW-VW Sagitar is actually the US-spec Jetta:

Then there's the Bora, and I'm not sure which car FAW bases that on; I think it's also based on the Polo.

I guess too that this is the same car as the Brazilian Polo sedan, and will in some markets carry a Jetta label. The Jetta in various generations around the world is sold under so many names (and, as pointed out, sometimes the Jetta name is glues on a Skoda Rapid), this is 99,9% not the Jetta the US will receive (because I doubt a developing market polo with a boot is a worthy replacement or contender in the C-segment in the US even compared to today's contenders, let alone those in 2019). That said, I do wonder what VA has in plans for the Jetta in the US. It is old, wasn't actually that new when released (actually a simplified version of the previous one if you like, form a technical POW), and yet we have not seen even a concpet car or a mule. And if we consider how long the "concept 1 - concept 2 - productionizing- development-prototypes" period was with the Atlas, well, the US Jetta could look at a nearly Bettle like career.....

Ignoring source for a moment, another potential VW that may wear the Jetta nameplate somewhere in the world:

I do think it's real, but I don't think it's a US-spec car, based on the license plate cut-outs which look to fit typical Chinese plates. Considering VW is going to introduce the new Jetta for the US at LA in November, it's likely either it's going to be this (which is awful), or a rebadged Lamando from China.

Heaven forbid that VW which has the talent to create a pleasing design like the Arteon could bring that faint flicker of passion to the Jetta.

The next Jetta should be a 5-door wagon, 5-door hatch, and 4-door sedan and consolidate the Golf under the Jetta banner. This would allow them to consolidate advertising. VW advertises sometimes, right? And put all their C-segment cars under one name for volume calculations.
