New Volkswagen Jetta launched in New York

The new Volkswagen Jetta has been unveiled at Times Square in New York, featuring a new look including a range of petrol and diesel engines.

Drawing inspiration from the popular NCC (New Compact Coupé) concept car which made its debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January, the new Jetta was styled under the leadership of Klaus Bischoff, head of design for the Volkswagen brand.  

Every Jetta will feature an integrated multifunction display, air conditioning and a CD stereo system.  Available as an option will be touchscreen satellite navigation.

BlueMotion Technology modifications including Start/Stop and battery regeneration will be made available linked to the 1.2-litre TSI and the 1.6-litreTDI engines.  The changes allow the 1.2-litre TSI version to achieve 53.2 mpg on the combined cycle while emitting 123 g/km of CO2.  The 1.6-litre TDI variant is capable of returning 68 mpg and emits just 109 g/km of carbon dioxide..

Sales of the new Jetta in the UK will commence in early 2011 with prices and specifications being announced nearer this time.
