One of these Chinese Santana/Jetta cars along with the Skoda Rapid are based on a modified PQ25 platform that may have bits of PQ34 (Mk4 Golf) componentry.
Engines powering the range are a 4cyl family EA211 (same family as up! engines).
Release is scheduled for last quarter 2012 / first quarter 2013.
My bet if VW were to make a entry sedan for North America then one of these would be it, in second generation though.
