The Volkswagen Jetta facelift has been launched.
The new Jetta comes with additional features like Xenon headlamps with integrated washers, LED daytime-running lamps, dual-zone Climatronic air-con and 16-inch alloy wheels that are fitted to lower variants as well. It also gets a 12-way electrically adjustable driver's seat, front and rear parking sensors, and cruise control.
The new car retains the engine options of the older one -- a 2.0-litre TDI good for 140bhp and a 1.4-litre TSI which makes 121bhp -- and is available in three trim levels. While both engines come with a six-speed manual transmission, only the 2.0-litre TDI motor comes with the option of a six-speed DSG automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. The 2.0-litre TDI manual comes with an ARAI-rated 19.33kpl fuel efficiency, while the auto gets a 16.96kpl rating.
Commenting on the launch of the new Volkswagen Jetta, Arvind Saxena, managing director, Volkswagen Group Sales India, said, “With Volkswagen’s acclaimed engineering expertise, we are able to build some of the most comfortable, safe, fuel-efficient and performance-oriented luxury sedans, which offer outstanding power delivery and driving dynamics. We are sure that the new Jetta, with its range of petrol and diesel engine options and optional 6-speed DSG automatic transmission, will offer a delightful driving experience for premium-segment car buyers in the Indian market.”
VW has priced the Jetta facelift in the range of Rs 13.70-19.43 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
