The new German sedan hit the market by 2014, with a radically new design. Just look at the front of the model, with a new mask and renewed headlights, placed on top of the bumper in a single line, without sacrificing the sharp lines that go to the outside.

However, the encouraging of the design side, while giving it a more sporty and muscular is in fact, more than a Volkswagen model. Exactly, remember the compact SUV prototype Taigun Volkswagen, which was presented last week at the Auto Show in Sao Paulo 2012.

While TDI diesel block, which incorporates the particle filter, is equipped with a system reduction of nitrogen oxides, to minimize polluting emissions. It seems certain, the disuse of the 6-cylinder in favor of a twin-turbo engine with power above 170 hp.

To finish, the launch of the car to the main European markets, is expected in late 2013 and early 2014. By then it will be available in Coupe and Sedan, Station Wagon, unprecedented.
