Drive-away pricing, sharpened styling and revised features for Volkswagen's mid-size Jetta sedan.
Volkswagen has updated the Jetta sedan for 2015, with drive-away pricing to sharpen value until the end of March.
The exterior design has also been subtly tweaked, with a redesigned front bumper, head and taillights and alloy wheels to bring the Jetta in line with the newer Golf and Polo ranges.
The exterior design has also been subtly tweaked to bring the Jetta in line with the newer Golf and Polo ranges.
The revised Jetta range kicks off with the $21,990 (drive-away) 118TSI Trendline, powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine hooked up to a six-speed manual.
Buyers wanting an automatic will have to spend an extra $2500 for the seven-speed DSG dual-clutch auto, which also reduces fuel consumption to 6.2L/100km (6.5L/100km for the manual).
The 118TSI engine is available in three different trim levels, including the base Trendline, Comfortline and range-topping Highline.
Trendline features a newly available driver fatigue detection system, anti-theft alarm, 16-inch alloys and electronic front differential lock for improved handling.
Building on the Trendline, the mid-spec $29,990 Comfortline adds DSG auto gearbox as standard, satnav, reverse camera with front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control air-con, auto headlights and wipers and 17-inch alloys.
The range-topping Highline models gain leather upholstered sports seats with the driver's electronically adjustable, keyless entry and start, unique 17-inch alloys and fog lights.
Stepping up to Highline trim ($34,490 drive-away in 118TSI) also brings the option of a diesel or more powerful petrol engine borrowed from the old MK6 Golf GTI.
Priced from $36,990 (drive-away) the 103TDI Highline is powered by a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine producing 103kW/320Nm connected to a six-speed DSG auto.
Combined fuel consumption for the frugal oil-burner is listed as 5.5L/100km.
The range-topping $39,990 Jetta 155TSI Highline Sport is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder borrowed from the old Golf GTI and tuned to produce 155kW.
Boasting sports suspension, a six-speed DSG and 0-100km/h sprint time of 7.2 seconds, the performance model also features 18-inch alloys, xenon headlights with LED daytime running LEDs, steering wheel-mounted gearshift paddles and tinted windows.
Naturally, the top performer is also the thirstiest model in the revised Jetta line-up with a combined consumption figure of 7.8L/100km.
The revised Volkswagen Jetta range is on sale now, with drive-away pricing valid until March 30.
