Why such surprise? Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past year, that's the exact criticism a large, large number of people have been leveling at VW since they introduced this new Jetta: looks like a Corolla, hence, Toyota wannabe. People on this site, car magazines, on-line reviews........ saying or hinting at the same thing. It looks like a Corolla with a big, shiny schnoz.
The Superb was based off the VW Santana sold in China, which was bigger than the Passat, maybe even the new one but I'm not sure. Since the new Passat sits on a stretched Jetta chassis, and it might be that Skoda will move to the new platform, then the Superb would in effect be a stretched Octavia. But then, they might just leave it on the Santana chassis. Does anyone know?
