New Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen has just unveiled the all new Jetta in India.  The car is nothing like the old generation Jetta (this car being built on an all new platform) and incorporates VW’s new design philosophy. The car sports new day time running lights and dual exhausts. Being 90mm longer, the car offers lots more space to occupants. Inside, the car gets leatherette upholstery, rear AC vents and a touch screen entertainment system. It also gets parking assistance and cruise control. The Jetta comes loaded with safety features like ESP and 8 airbags.

New Volkswagen Jetta will be powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder CRDi engine making 140PS and 320Nm of torque the same as the Passat. The power is delivered through a 6-speed manual gearbox or for the more performance oriented, a DSG box. The prices start at Rs 14.12 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi with the top end variant priced at Rs. 17.86 Lakhs.

The simple, clean lines of the Jetta look stylish and the large tail-lamps infuse a certain degree of flair to the design. A prominent highlight is the L-shaped stoplight. The front bears a resemblance to other Volkswagen models, while the rear gives the impression of the Audi A4 saloon.

The new Jetta offers better space than its predecessor, as it is longer and wider than before. It competes with the likes of the Corolla Altis, Skoda Laura and Chevrolet Cruze.

“The Jetta has been a worldwide bestseller for Volkswagen, and with the sixth generation we are confident to continue this success story in an important market like India. With the introduction of the all-new Jetta our entire carline from the Polo to the Passat now offers the latest and the best to our customers, reiterating our commitment here in India. And the good news is that this new carline will be available for customers at an even better price than the outgoing Jetta.”  Said Mr. Neeraj Garg, Member of Board and Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd.
