European carmaker Volkswagen launched new Jetta in two engine options are available, including a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, and a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit.
The price starts at Rs 15.01 lakh for 2.0 litre TDI and Rs 13.87 lakh for the New Jetta 1.4 TSI (Ex-showroom Mumbai). The car is available in three trim levels, which cater to a wide range of customer requirements and preferences.
Jetta comes fitted with Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), Electronic Stabilization Programme (ESP) and six air-bags as standard equipment. The top-of-the-line Jetta 2.0 TDI, in 'Highline' trim, comes fitted with a 6-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission, which showcases Volkswagen's engineering prowess.
