This is the funny Volkswagen commercial featured in the Super Bowl 2011. The commercial is about the new Volkswagen Passat.
Volkswagen decided that to challenge the Taurus, Accord and Camry in the U.S., it needed a car that bigger than the Passat and a better value. That's why America gets the New Midsize Sedan. It's a neat trick if VW can pull it off.
In Europe, compactness, high-speed refinement, and fuel economy are the priorities. Now free of the need to be all things to all continents, this new Passat has now become more of a European car than ever.
It will be interesting to see which philosophy will win out -- VW's strategy of building different cars for different markets, or Ford's "One Ford" global convergence.
