If you regularly follow-up on Volkswagen cars, probably you knew that the new Volkswagen Jetta had launched in Europe and North America back in last year. Furthermore, Volkswagen had ventured with DRB-Hicom to locally assemble Volkswagen cars in Malaysia. There will be VW Passat, Jetta, and Polo. Which variants? I am unsure till date.
There are a few photos “self-leaked” into the internet in relation to those models performing road test in Malaysia. I saw the Volkswagen Jetta there and I love it at the first sight! Personally, it is a better practical car than the Golf. In essence, it is a Golf Sedan.
Based on the Europe model, there are TDI (Diesel) and TSI (Petrol) models. In Malaysia, TDI will be an impracticable model to be marketed which I don’t know why. Probably, the diesel fuel quality still not up to standard. What’s more, there are three TSI models which available are 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI. Likely the 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI will be selected here (just like the Golf model) and combined with a dual-clutch transmission (DSG).
For the CKD VW Jetta 1.4 TSI model, it is speculated to be marketed at the price mark between RM120k-RM130k. In the other hand, I am hoping the price will be around RM110k-RM120k.
Without further data and info, check out the photos that I posted in this article. I will keep you posted once there are more solid update and fact.
