European-edition Jetta released

Volkswagen has introduced the European edition of the new Jetta model. "Never before has a Jetta had this much sports appeal, this much fuel efficiency or this large a size," Volkswagen says in the press release.

Personally, I donít see how the new Jetta projects sports appeal visually, but measuring 4.64m in length, the new Jetta is longer than its 4.55m predecessor. The added length results in a 6.7 cm gain in legroom. The Germans has tried to make the new Jetta as appealing as they could by loading the entry Trendline model with lots of goodies. You get, among other things, climate control, dust and pollen filters, height-adjustable driver's seat, multifunctional display, electrically adjustable and heated mirrors, six airbags, Hill Climb Assist, ABS and ESP. Comfortline ups the ante with mild exterior chrome accents, 16-inch alloy wheels, 8-way adjustment of driver and front passenger seats and Park Pilot.

On the petrol front, the 2.0 TSI is joined by a 1.2 TSI engine (105 hp) and two 1.4 TSI engines, delivering 122 bhp or 160 bhp. The 1.6 TDI four-pot which is capable of 105 hp, will certainly get most of the attention in Europe given that it only needs 4.2 liters of fuel per every 100 kilometers. The second diesel option is the 2-liter 140 hp variant.

Since Singaporeís Jetta is the Euro-specced version, expect a local release in the coming months.

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.

Interior wise, there is nothing wrong with it. Sports appeal? Hello VW??? Are you ok? By far that is the most uneuropean looking car ever. A VW that doesn't have character at all. The Bora was a good effort, solid looks. This new Jetta is the most bland VW ever period.

I wonder if we sit inside this car (without the logo on the steering wheel), can we differentiate whether is a "Sport appeal" VW or the lower badge Skoda
