2007 Volkswagen Jetta | new car review

Posted on Jun 25, 2009 by

 

The latest Jetta was launched in 2005 in Europe, so was already well established in the market before making its bow in the region last year. The Jetta has a 26-year success story in Europe. Including the Vento (1991 to 1998) and Bora (1998 to 2005), over 6.6 million units of this model range have rolled off the assembly line to date. The new generation is produced in Mexico, which is among the leading production sites in the VW Group.

The interior features a clear, fresh and stylish design. All control elements were designed to be self-explanatory. The instrument cluster has functional levels that are clearly separated; all buttons and switches can be used intuitively. The middle tunnel rising noticeably upwards above the shifting area first opens up to the air conditioning operation. Above this follows a panel of buttons for functions such as rear window heating, air circulation and seat heating. The radio or radio navigation system with a large central display is integrated above this. On the very top: the warning light switch, air vents and another storage compartment.

With a trunk storage volume of 527 litres, 72 litres more than its predecessor – the new Jetta provides a clear plus in storage space.

Each of the three derivatives, the basic Trendline, Comfortline and Sportline, are appointed according to their names and even the basic version (the Trendline) already includes four power window. Other features include electrically adjustable and heated side view mirrors, semi-automatic Climatic air conditioning system, central locking with remote control, six airbags, head-rests and three-point safety belts for all five seats, electro-mechanical power steering as well as ABS, ASR and ESP.

The engines for the Jetta cover the 102 bhp to 200 bhp output range and all comply with the strict EU-4 exhaust emissions standard.
