Indeed, I am wondering what vw will bring to the game, maybe the polo? or perhaps a concept for the new sedan?

There is a rumour that VW may show a concept version of the new NCS Jetta in "coupe" form ala MKIV Cj style. http://www.corrado-club.com/pics/newcorrado/vw_cj.jpg
I read it on a VW enthusiast site. The person also said the production Jetta sedan would later debut in Detriot or Chicago and went as far as to say this time it may actually see production in coupe form.

yeah the 2 VW's are world debuts, so theyre completely new to the circuit, and also means its not the R20.
