Volkswagen Jetta India
Volkswagen Jetta is a mid-sized premium sedan and is an ideal family car which is just right for the Indian car market with its elegance and beauty redefined. Like Passat the all-new Jetta is also available in diesel only. The new Volkswagen Jetta is partly based on the PQ35 platform, which has also been used for building the Volkswagen Golf, Skoda Yeti and Skoda Superb.
Volkswagen Jetta Engine
The Volkswagen Jetta is available in Diesel only. All the models are packed with 6 Speed Manual Gearbox whereas new Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L TDi Highline is packed with 6 Speed Automatic DSG Gearbox. The highly powerful 1968 cc diesel engine produces a Maximum Power of 140 PS at 4200 rpm and a Maximum Torque of 320 Nm at 1750-2000 rpm.
Volkswagen Jetta Exteriors
The Jetta is stylish with its understated looks of the VW group but the only standout features for this car are the day time running lamps and the all new Navarra alloy wheel design. The current model, although well equipped and well engineered, doesn’t quite look premium enough to compete with the rivals in its segment. The head lamps however are a tweaked unit from the Polo and Vento and look so sharper that you could accidentally cut yourself if you touch them at the wrong edges.
Volkswagen Jetta Interiors
While from the outside Jetta’s styling is minimalist, on the inside VW have given it a very up market feel. Leather wrapped steering wheel, gear shift knob and hand brake lever. Chrome interior package and wood inserts for the dashboard (along the centre console too) and doors (along the sills) are available in the Comfortline and Highline variants. The new Jetta will also offer better space than its predecessor, as it is longer and wider than before. The German interiors are so perfect that after sometime you actually start looking out for some flaw in the cabin which is again, just a distant dream.
Volkswagen Jetta Safety Features
Volkswagen Jetta gets 4 star safety features, which removes any sort of doubts when it comes to the safety of occupants once inside the car. With eight airbags (in case of Comfortline DSG) it is a complete safe house for the passengers from the front and the side. Besides front and rear airbags, there are state of the art features like ABS, ESP, traction control, and the more rudimentary features like front and side impact beams.
Volkswagen Jetta Colors
The Volkswagen Jetta is available in several colors that include red spice, deep black, platinum grey, campanella white and reflex silver.
Volkswagen Jetta Ride and Handling
The ride is again fantastic and the Jetta dispatches bumps with ease. The suspension feels a touch more damped than before. The Jetta will surely appeal to enthusiasts or even the Civic fans. If you love to drive, you must have the Jetta. The steering, gear knob and the handbrake now get a leather cover. Rear seats are comfortable too with adequate back support and average thigh support. There is minimum body roll, thanks to the anti-roll bars fitted at the front.
