Volkswagen’s New Compact Coupe (NCC) has leaked out ahead of its official launch later today at the Detroit motor show.

Reports claim the Jetta-based coupe is a hybrid, with power coming from a 148bhp, 177lb ft version of VW’s 1.4-litre TSI engine and a 27bhp electric motor. The motor is powered by lithium-ion batteries and the NCC is able to run for short distances on short journeys only.

The Tungsten Silver Metallic NCC show car comes equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels and LED lights at the front and rear. The interior is finished in Grigio Quartz and Berry White leather.

The NCC is reportedly 4540mm long, 1780mm wide and 141mm high. According to the reports, the car is tipped to make production within the next two years.

Surely this is just an Audi with a VW front grafted on. The differences between the two brands are getting more and more blurred..

I like it, can see it doing very well in the states but after a few yrs on sale over here they will probably be blinged up with big alloys and tints

I`d rather have a Kia Koup, much prettier and probably much cheaper.

The what? Is that a spelling mistake or something? Sounds like it is directly from the Engrish blogsite. *tongue-in-cheek*

The problem is, most of these 'coupe' versions are little more than 2 door versions of the 4-door saloons. Even if they are lowered with raked glass, they too often resemble nothing more than a family saloon with the rear doors missing.
