At the onset of the Volkswagen Fest 2017, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) unveiled the Jetta AllStar Edition, along with all things VW. Joining the Jetta AllStar is none other than the Beetle Merdeka edition, at the Setia Alam Convention Center in Shah Alam.
The Jetta AllStar is the latest AllStar edition to be launched by VPCM. The range was first introduced with the Polo ALLSTAR earlier this year, and followed by the Vento AllStar in June. The range was developed specifically for discerning customers who wish to stand out from the crowd.
The Jetta AllStar comes with RM3,000 worth of exclusive accessories such as aluminium sports pedals, rear trunk spoiler, ‘ALLSTAR’ scuff plates, emblems and carpet mats. Priced from RM109,990, four colors are available – Candy White, Platinum Grey, Reflex Silver and Deep Black. Powered by 1.4l TSI single-turbocharged engine with an improved 7-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG), the Jetta AS delivers an output of 150PS, and a torque of 250Nm between 1,500 to 3,500rpm. On top of it, the Jetta is the only sedan in its segment with a 7-speed gearbox, and is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds. Despite class-leading performance, the Jetta features a combined fuel consumption of approximately 5.0l/100 km on making it the segment leader in fuel efficiency.
The 60th Merdeka Edition Beetle
As Malaysians celebrate the nation’s 60th Independence, VPCM is proud to join in with the introduction of the limited edition 60th Merdeka Edition Beetle. Similar to the iconic, and much-loved Herbie Beetle, the Merdeka Beetle is decked in livery, with the number “60” splashed on its hood and sides.
Updates in the Merdeka Edition Beetle includes leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a 5.8″ Touchscreen ‘Composition Color’ with USB, Bluetooth and 8 Speakers; and seat trim covers in ‘Pepita’ fabric. Under its hood is a 1.2l turbocharged TSI engine with an output of 105PS, and together with a 7-speed automatic transmission DSG powering a maximum torque of 175Nm, owners are ensured a fun run indeed.
Priced at RM136,888, only 16 exclusive units are available. The Merdeka Beetle is offered in Pure White and White Silver. All 16 units come with five-year warranty, 60-months road tax, and a limited edition Beetle suitcase.
