22nd February, 2015

Volkswagen Australia has released a revised range of Jetta models, bringing with it some technical enhancements, additional comfort and convenience features and a new flagship model.

The new Jetta range continues Volkswagen Australiaís strategy to rationalise its product line-up.

The revised Jetta range now has the standard fitment of Volkswagenís own Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL) function, which reduces understeer by braking the inside wheel while cornering under load; as well as the potentially life-saving Driver Fatigue Detection System Ė a feature beneficial for drivers who travel long distances.

All models in the revised Jetta range also receive an anti-theft alarm system, alloy wheels, cruise control as standard, as well as a leather multi-function steering wheel combined with Multi-Function Display (MFD Plus).

The new VW Jetta line-up offers a range of engine and transmission throughout the model grades. The 118TSI engine is available with 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG transmission in Trendline Specification, and with the 7-speed DSG standard on Comfortline and Highline specification. The 103TDI diesel engine is matched to a 6-speed DSG and comes in Highline specification, while the newly added 155TSI Highline Sport model comes with a 6-speed DSG as standard.


1.4 litre TSI
The 118kW 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine returns in the Jetta range. The Jetta 118TSI package is available with either a 6-speed manual (Trendline) or 7-speed DSG transmission in Trendline, Comfortline and Highline specification.

2.0 litre TDI
The 103kW 2.0 litre TDI diesel engine returns with 320Nm of torque and a fuel efficiency rating of 5.5 litres per 100km combined cycle. The 2.0 litre TDI is available exclusively with the Jetta Highline specification, and is matched with a 6-speed DSG transmission as standard.

2.0 litre TSI
Adding new levels of performance and sporting prowess to the Jetta range, the 155kW 2.0 litre TSI petrol engine is available exclusively with the Jetta Highline Sport model with a standard 6-speed DSG transmission.

Specification lines

118TSI Trendline
Available with the 118kW TSI petrol engine with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG transmission, the Trendline specification offers value for money with a range of standard inclusions, including XDL, Driver Fatigue Detection System and 16-inch alloy wheels.

118TSI Comfortline
As seen in other Volkswagen models such as Golf and Polo and the previous Jetta range, the Comfortline specification adds a number of convenience and comfort features above the features of the base model Trendline. In the case of the revised Jetta range, the Jetta 118TSI Comfortline receives the RNS510 satellite navigation system, rear view camera with front and rear parking distance sensors, dual zone climate control air conditioning, rain sensing wipes, automatically dimming mirror and automatic headlights and comfort front seats.

118TSI Highline and 103TDI Highline
The Highline specification again offers two engine and transmission choices: the 118TSI petrol engine with a 7-speed DSG transmission, or the 103TDI diesel engine with a 6-speed DSG transmission. Both models extend on the level of features in the Comfortline model grade by adding leather appointed upholstery with comfort sport front seats, an electronically adjustable driverís seat, keyless access with keyless entry and starting system, 17-inch alloy wheels and front fog lights with static cornering lights.

155TSI Highline Sport
The revised Jetta range brings with it a new flagship model, the 155kW Highline Sport model, which has unique features above the Highline specification. The Highline Sport model is powered by the 155TSI petrol engine previously seen in Mark VI Golf GTI and rides on dynamic sports suspension. Adding another dimension of sportiness to its exterior and interior appearance, the Jetta Highline Sport features 18-inch alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime driving lights, LED tail lights, Gearshift paddles mounted behind the leather Multi-function steering wheel and dark tinted rear side and rear window glass.
