Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) today officially introduced the new Volkswagen Jetta in three variants. The new, locally-assembled Volkswagen Jetta starts with the Trendline variant, followed by the Comfortline and Highline variants.
In looks, the Volkswagen Jetta incorporates VW’s fresh Design DNA with elegant lines and redefined aerodynamics. The overall exterior is accentuated by a new front fascia with bumper grille and the rear bumper’s tail lights. Additional updates for the new Jetta include front bi-Xenons with LED DRLs and automatic activation, headlight washer system, exterior mirror with environment lighting, 17-inch “Queensland” alloy wheels, chrome grilles, front and rear fog lights and LED rearlights.
The interior of the new Jetta matches the exterior rather effortlessly, thanks to an assortment of aesthetic and functional features such as; a KESSY keyless entry and push start, leather multi-function steering with paddle shifters, auto-dimming rear view mirror, cruise control, auto power windows and a glove compartment with cooling. For driver and passenger comfort, the Jetta is furnished with ‘Vienna’ leather seat upholstery, height adjustable armrest with rear aircond vents, 12-way driver electric seat and dual-Climatronic automatic air- conditioning.
For infotainment, the new Jetta is loaded with a new RCD330G headunit. The readily available touchscreen is offered alongside a single CD player, USB and iPod interface, AUX-IN support and an SD card slot. Connectivity for Bluetooth and MirrorLink is seamless and easily accessible on the crystal clear 7-inch touchscreen.
The New Jetta comes with a new generation, 1.4-liter TSI single-turbocharged engine, paired to an improved 7-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG) for an output of 150PS and 250 Nm of torque, between 1,500 to 3,500rpm. As the only car in its segment with a 7-speed gearbox, the new Jetta accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 8.6 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption rating of just 5.0l/100 km. Heralded as an Energy Efficiency Vehicle (EEV), the new Jetta features start stop, regenerative braking and a coasting function. Start/Stop deactivates the engine when the car is at a standstill and reactivates when it starts moving, while regenerative braking recycles the lost energy by storing it and using it for acceleration. Meantime, coasting allows the driver to roll over a longer distance once the driver’s foot is off the accelerator.
As with all Volkswagen models, the new Jetta comes with a number of active and passive safety features for example; ABS, Brake Assist, ESC, Intelligent Crash Response system, Hill-hold control, front head restraints, anti-theft alarm with interior survelliance, anti-pinch windows, six airbags and ISOFIX. To ensure effective braking, the new Jetta is equipped with multi-collision brakes and brake disc wipers.
The new Volkswagen Jetta Trendline is retailing for RM 108,990, with the Comfortline and Highline at RM 117,990 and RM 128,990. Four colors are on the cards for the new Jetta, including Candy White, Platinum Grey, Reflex Silver and Deep Black. A 5-year manufacturer warranty and 5-year roadside assistance are attached to the new Jetta and all VW models.
