The Volkswagen Jetta facelift will go on sale for a starting price of INR 13.48 lakhs. Prices for the Jetta diesel variant will start at INR 14.78 lakhs. (Scroll Down for complete price list).
Worth mentioning is that it has been over two years since the introduction of the sixth gen VW Jetta in India. While the car has been registering decent sales figures, the advent of the new 2013 Skoda Octavia has worsen things a bit for its VW sibling.
Hence, it doesn’t come across as surprising to see Volkswagen readying a Jetta facelift for our market.
The Volkswagen Jetta facelift is likely to boast of an updated set of headlights, which would be similar to the one on the bigger Passat. Akin to the headlights on the Passat, those on the Jetta facelift would feature L-shaped Daytime Running LEDs (DRLs) clusters. The Trendline and Comfortline trim levels will also get a set of new design ‘Sedona’ alloy wheels.
Other than these minor cosmetic changes, the car get additional features such as-
- Auto Climate Control (standard across all the variants)
- Headlight washer (for Highline)
Engine options will remain untouched. This means that the car will be offered with a 1.4 litre petrol motor and a 2.0 litre oil burner. The petrol engine on offer is the same motor that is also available on the base variants of the newly launched Octy. For the Jetta though, this engine has a lower max power output of 122 PS and a lower peak torque of 200 Nm . The Jetta 1.4 petrol boasts of an ARAI certified Fuel Economy of 14.69 kmpl.
The Jetta’s 2.0 litre oil burner has a max power of 140 PS and peak torque of 320 Nm. The gearbox options for this motor include a 6 speed DSG automatic and a 6-speed manual gearbox.
We feel that it would be nothing short of interesting to see if these updates would enable the Jetta to fend off the fast rising heat from the new Octy.
