The revised Volkswagen Jetta is now available for order in showrooms, ahead of first deliveries in December.
The new Jetta – which made its debut at the New York Auto Show in April – features revised styling front and back, enhanced features and trims and greater efficiency.
The Jetta’s styling has been updated to make it sleeker, with an overall improvement in aerodynamics of 10%. At the front, there’s a revised radiator grille with three horizontal fins, and a reprofiled bumper beneath.
At the rear the boot lid has been redesigned to incorporate an aerodynamically efficient lip, which extends into the wings at the side. Beneath this are new tail lights and a revised bumper.
Inside, the Jetta comes with revised instruments, a new design of steering wheel, a variety of new trims around the centre console and new fabric designs for the seats and door trims. New ambient lighting in the Jetta GT gives an upmarket feel.
As well as styling revisions, the Jetta also comes with new optional assistance systems, including 'blind spot detection' with rear traffic alert.
All new Jetta models will feature BlueMotion Technology modifications, including stop/start and battery energy recuperation, and all engines are compliant with EU VI emissions legislation.
The engines on offer are a 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS unit with a six-speed manual gearbox; a 1.4-litre TSI 150 PS unit with a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox; a 2.0-litre TDI with 110 PS and a five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox; and a 2.0-litre TDI with 150 PS and either a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearbox.
Three trim levels are available: S, SE and GT.
Standard equipment includes DAB digital radio, ESC electronic stability control, electric windows and air conditioning.
SE trim adds to the list with 16-inch ‘Atlanta’ alloy wheels, lumbar support, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, a leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel, MDI multi-device interface and cruise control.
Top-of-the-range GT trim comes with 15 mm lower sports suspension, 17-inch ‘Lancaster’ alloy wheels, front fog lights, front sports seats, automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heat-insulating tinted rear glass, a colour multifunction trip computer, driver alert system and ambient interior lighting.
