NEW FOR 2011:
– Redesigned model
– Electronic stability and traction control standard on all models
For 2011, the Volkswagen Jetta is completely redesigned, with new body and interior, new engines, and a new platform that, unlike in past years, it does not share with the Golf. The Jetta is available only as a sedan; a wagon variant is available in the Golf line-up.
The Jetta comes with a choice of three engines: a 2.0-litre four-cylinder, 2.5-litre five-cylinder, and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel (TDI). The gasoline engines use a five-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic. The TDI uses a six-speed manual or optional six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) automatic. The 2.0-litre comes in Trendline, Trendline+ and Comfortline trim. The 2.5-litre comes in Comfortline, Sportline and Highline trim, while the TDI comes in Comfortline and Highline trim.
Features on the 2.0-litre Trendline include 15-inch steel wheels, manual mirrors, variable intermittent wipers, power locks, vanity mirrors, CD/MP3 stereo with four speakers, auxiliary input, six-way manually-adjustable cloth seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, tilt and telescopic steering column, and auto up/down windows.
