Looks like the hornet is one step closer to production reality..

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Looks like the hornet is one step closer to production reality..

check out the news item from May 28 on http://www.dodge-hornet.com/.

Basicly in a nutshell it looks like dodge is going to use a VW jetta as a platform to build the dodge hornet off of. I guess it comes out cheaper for dodge to use a vw instead of making a new car, but anyways, it looks like with an annoucement like this that the hornet is gonna be a reality. Good news for ppl like me that arent exactly happy with the caliber as a replacement.. :(

I kinda like it, still just a concept as of now but its just a lil too boxy, interior is quite nice though :2cents:

Thanks for the link. Definitely a lot smaller than the Caliber - the Caliber's on the Jeep Compass platform, this one is on the Jetta's. Perhaps the Hornet will make the old Neon crowd a little happier and still appeal to those looking for extra room/econoboxes. :thumbs:

Interesting concept, and it would be wicked to see more Daimler/VW cross-platforms.

But no, that won't be the Neon replacement. There is another one coming yet :)
