Looks closer to what I'd want, if only VW had reliability that inspired confidence. Power seats are less than pointless if there isn't memory for multiple drivers. It's annoying how slowly power seats adjust to position.

It seems strange that they choose to keep satellite on the economy car. I don't know anyone that pays a monthly subscription for it, and the audio quality is awful. HD radio is free, and yet companies are very slow to adopt the technology.

Although I'm a diesel fanboy, I think it's too little, too late for the U.S. market. Diesel prices haven't been good since the 90's, and now hybrids and other econo-cars are making it difficult to justify the price premium.
