    Default 2011 VW Jetta Revealed

    VW's all-new Jetta. The company is counting on this car big time to take on the Corolla and Civic and win. Will launch a mid-size sedan soon as well to replace Passat.

    http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...ial-debut.html



    Ahead of the car’s official debut tomorrow, the folks at AutoExpress have released a selection of photos showing the all-new 2011 Volkswagen Jetta sedan. Rather than being based on the same architecture as the Golf, the 2011 Jetta gets an all-new platform.

    In Europe the new compact sedan will come with either a selection of gasoline engines including a 104-horsepower 1.2-liter TSI, a 121-hp 1.4-liter TSI and a 200-hp 2.0-liter TSI. As for diesels, two options will also be on the table including a 104-horsepower 1.6 TDI and a 138-hp 2.0-liter TDI.

    According to rumors and reports, when it does arrive in North America, the 2011 Jetta is expected to cost under $15,000 to start and will get a torsion beam rear suspension rather than the European fully-independent unit in a bid to save costs.

    Default 2011 VW Jetta Revealed

    Can't say I'm overly impressed, but the interior is nice. Guess I've just never been much of a VW fan

    http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...wer-price.html



    Today Volkswagen announced the debut of its important and all-new 2011 Jetta model, lifting the covers at a special event in Times Square. With a goal to sell 800,000 units a year in North America by 2018, VW has high hopes for the new Jetta, which now boasts best-in-class rear legroom, a new chassis, more stylish design and a lower base price with models starting at, “around $16,000.” (According to the European press release, the price is $15,995).

    In total, four engines will be offered on U.S. and Canadian models including the new 138-hp TDI engine currently offered by VW. As for gasoline options, the base engine will be a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder making 113-hp and getting 28-mpg combined with the standard six-speed manual and 26 mpg combined with the six-speed DSG automatic. The 2.5-liter five-cylinder will deliver 168-hp, while top-level 2.0 TSI engine will deliver 197-hp.

    As of for the rest of the car, it gets a stylish if understated look, but keeps VW’s excellently finished interior. The car itself is larger than the current Jetta, measuring 3.54-inches longer, with 2.76-inches of that between the wheels to deliver much improve interior space.

    maybe the poverty models get released first, and some fancy GLI with a proper suspension will follow

    I have a hard time believing those low MPG predictions

    My wifes jetta gets the predicted 32-33 MPG on the highway with the 5 banger 2.5L engine mated to the manual transmission. Not as good as a 4 cyl honda but respectful considering it makes 50% more HP then the 4 banger in the article....
