As we informed you earlier during the day, VW is launching its new Jetta today in Mumbai. To be powered by a 2.0-liter 140bhp TDI engine, the new Jetta will present itself as a worthy alternative to the Laura which currently is the undisputed king of the sub D segment. Interestingly VW is launching the new Jetta at Mehboob Studio in Mumbai where they plan to give a Bollywood twist to the launch. We have our men at the venue to report the launch live.
