2011 VW Jetta spied in California, USA

By SYF77 on 06 Jan 2010



Just as Volkswagen released a revised DSG equipped Jetta 1.6 in Singapore, news of an all new 2011 Jetta has been floating around on the internet. The above video shows the development of VW's next generation bread-and-butter model in Death Valley, California. The camouflaged prototype model seen in the spy video suggests that the new Jetta will boast all-new sheetmetal with a pinch of Audi A4 styling cues in the profile and rear-end. From the video, I observed that the new model has a more muscular side profile as compared to the existing model. Nice!. However, the dashboard of the prototype looks rather conservative. I hope that the dashboard will look better in actual production.

Underneath the skin, the German firm's new compact-size sedan will most likely share bits and pieces from the Golf VI. In the States, the 2011 Jetta will be offered with VW's latest 2.0 TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines. In other parts of the world, power for the new Jetta will come from VW's lively yet fuel efficient 1.4-liter TSI four-cylinder petrol with outputs ranging from 122HP to 170HP. I would expect the excellent 7 Speed DSG gearbox to be carried over from the current model as well.

Its rumored that VW's Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla challenger could make its auto show debut as early as this month's gathering in Detroit, but this has yet to be confirmed by Volkswagen.

Although the current Jetta is set to go into the history book soon, VW still gave it a minor interior upgrade, which sports the Mark 6 Golf's steering wheel and instrumental dials layout. This is truly the spirit of continual improvement.

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.

Actually the good thing with conservertive interior design is that a few years down the road. You wont feel that your dashboard is out of fashion.
