Great value new Jetta now open for ordering –

Available for delivery from 25th April.

The new Jetta is open for ordering, ahead of its official UK launch on 25 April. It has a striking new look, is more spacious, better equipped and more economical than its predecessor, and with prices starting from £16,960 it also offers unbelievable value. It's also available with low-rate 7.9 per cent finance.

The new model will be available with two diesel engines from launch and two petrol engines later this year. The 1.6-litre 105 PS TDI BlueMotion Technology model, fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox, boasts an average combined fuel consumption of 67.3 mpg and emits just 109 g/km of C02, making it one of the most efficient vehicles in its class. See below for details of the full engine line-up.

At 4.64 metres in length, new Jetta is 90mm longer than its predecessor, and its boot packs a generous 510 litres of luggage. The rear seating layout is significantly more spacious – there's 6.7cm more legroom – thanks to the car’s longer wheelbase.

Press comments "The new car no longer looks like a Golf with a carbuncle of a boot grafted onto its behind. It is now a well-proportioned, elegant saloon that will attract the attention of buyers looking for something a little different from the norm. ...the overall standard of construction is great.
"Turn into a corner and the Jetta reacts instantly and predictably, and there’s plenty of feedback through the steering wheel to help you place the car exactly where you want it. The Jetta is a decent and attractive proposition – and it's attractively priced too." "The new proportions help give the smallest saloon in the Volkswagen range a more grown-up look. Inside, quality is hard to fault and the cabin boasts the same no-nonsense, easy-to-live-with layout as the Golf, giving a great driving position and logical dash. Nicely weighted, linear steering combined with decent body control and consistent grip levels mean the car shares the composure of its Golf cousin in the corners. If you’re looking for a good small family car with a boot, the Jetta shouldn’t be ignored." This Jetta will appeal to more people, especially families with kids because it's nearly three inches longer than the old model – that adds handy extra rear legroom. The Jetta could also tempt buyers of larger cars like the Ford Mondeo and the Passat, looking to downsize slightly, but still have the equipment of an executive car. "The new Jetta is a small saloon - nothing esoteric there - but now it's swelled slightly so that it neatly plugs the gap between Golf and Passat. The instrument panel points towards the driver, which lends a welcome whiff of sportiness. Golf pricing with Passat evocation... that should work."
