2011 Volkswagen Jetta | new car review
At a price tag of AED 69400, the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta is a compelling option for buyers looking at an entry level sedan car. For the money, you get a car with a 2.0 litre engine that produces 115 bhp mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission, topped up with German engineering, superb build quality and nice styling.
Although the Trendline is entry level car in the Jetta lineup, it comes with remote controlled central locking, a multi functional display with CD player and 8 speaker sound system, climatic air conditioner and automatic hazard lights on hard braking. The car rides on 16-inch steel wheels.
Top of the line variant, the Comfortline Plus comes with 17-inch alloys, keyless lock and engine start system, electronically adjustable sports seats with partial leather covering in the front and a touch screen audio system.
