Ajax, Ontario – Volkswagen Canada has announced its City Golf and City Jetta models for 2008, with redesigned interiors and exteriors. Exclusive to Canada, the City models were first introduced in the fall of 2006 as 2007 models.

The City models receive new and fully revised front and rear end treatments, to harmonize them with the new Volkswagen family look; aside from the roof and doors, virtually all body panels have been redesigned. The City Golf receives new mirrors with integrated turn signals, and both models receive new instrument clusters, new upholstery, standard stereo auxiliary jack and USB port.

Both models use a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with five-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission.

The City Jetta will appear first in showrooms, at a base price of $16,900, while the City Golf will follow in November, priced starting at $15,300.
