The final countdown for new VW Jetta

For all the Jetta fans, start your count down to the next generation. Volkswagen has just launched a dedicated countdown page on its U.S. website for the all-new 2011 Jetta saloon. According to the German company, the sixth-generation of its bread-and-butter sedan will be revealed to the world live on June 15 at 11:25 a.m. EST / 8:25 a.m. PST.

From the prototype models we've seen so far, it appears that the 2011 VW Jetta will get a much crisper look than the current model, with the styling resembling the almost-production ready New Compact Coupe (NCC) concept that was shown in Detroit earlier this year. It is believed that the new Jetta will use a modified version of the platform found on the Golf VI which in turn is largely based on the previous, fifth-generation Golf.

Under the hood, the Germans will most likely continue to offer the base model with the outdated, but cheap to produce 2.5-liter five-cylinder petrol for the US market. For markets such as Singapore’s, expect the familiar 1.4 TSI engines to continue powering the new sedan. It wouldn’t be long before we see the new face of this increasingly popular sedan in the Lion City. Stay tuned!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
