New Jettas are fitted with air conditioning, an MP3 compatible CD stereo, six airbags, ABS, Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP), an alarm and folding rear seats as standard.
Compared to the car it replaces, the new Jetta is 90 mm longer at 4,644 mm with a wheelbase increase of 70 mm to 2,648 mm. This allows the rear legroom to increase by 67 mm.
The Jetta is available to order now, with first customer deliveries due in May.
