The new Volkswagen Jetta has sporty body styling and bold lines that make it sleek and streamlined. With impressive performance and a range of responsive engines, it is powerful drive and good body control and firm steering make for complete control on the road.
Available with air conditioning, alloy wheels and automatic lights and wipers as standard, the Volkswagen Jetta is a fantastic family vehicle.
The VW Jetta is smaller than the Passat and shares many design elements with its smaller hatchback brother, the Golf. Classy, understated, and well proportioned, the VW Jetta comes in three levels of trim: the S, SE, and Sport.
Standard paint finishes are black, tornado red, and candy white, with a range of metallic and pearl paint options as extra. With its elegant looks and practical design, the VW Jetta is a compact saloon with luxury appeal.
An entry level 1.4 TSI petrol engine, producing 122 PS, is available on both the S and SE models, whilst a more powerful 1.4 litre petrol engine producing 160 PS is only an option with the SE or the Sport. The 2 litre diesel provides more than enough power for quick acceleration and nifty handling.
VW's super-efficient BlueMotion technology is also now available in the shape of a 1.6 TDI diesel engine which uses a stop/start system and brake energy recuperation to keep fuel costs and CO2 emissions down. The BlueMotion engine also qualifies for low road tax.
The VW Jetta has sure-footed road handling and its high quality suspension means that it lives up to the VW reputation for good performance. Sharp, evenly-weighted steering and strong brakes make it more than a match for rival compact saloons. All mechanical parts are shared with the Golf, which means the Jetta uses tried and tested technology.
All models can be upgraded with an electric sunroof and 2Zone climate control at an extra cost. A choice of leather upholstery is available on the SE and Sport models, as is a top of the range touch screen navigation and radio system with voice control, and a DVD player. Multi-function leather-trimmed steering wheel, extra side airbags in the rear, and a variety of packs are also available, making the car easy to customise.
