From the front, it's apparently been made to look like the Phideon and Arteon but what you are looking at is actually the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI.
The car is set to be publicly shown in January next year. The grille goes further down than the headlights to form something that looks like a geometric smile. New headlights are under that camouflage, as are the fog lights at the bottom.
The Jetta doesn't have the Arteon's clamshell hood design, but it borrows the Golf's snazzy mirrors and wheels. A bigger boot and longer body are in line with the upsizing trend.
Little is known about the all-new Jetta, but it would be wrong to believe that it's based on anything other than the MQB platform. Our source mentions the known 2-litre, 4-cylinder TSI-engine that powers the current GLI, likely tuned to 220 or 230hp in the new model and hence on par with the European Golf GTI. That said, the Jetta GLI will not make it to European shores.
