This new Jetta will be built exclusively in Puebla, Mexico, and goes on sale in the US this year for less than $16,000. Unfortunately, UK versions of the Jetta won’t be such compelling value – but they should still look cheap. Our test Jetta was a 197bhp 2.0 TSI DSG – a close, if not quite perfect match for the range-topping Jetta that’ll be offered in the UK next year. The cabin quality and material tactility of our test car was good, if not quite up to Wolfsburg standards, but both will be improved in time for the Jetta’s European launch. Second-rate refinement is another way you might have expected a Mexican-built VW to fall short of European standards, but this Jetta won’t confirm expectations that way, either. Slightly slacker body control made our Jetta fall short of the Golf’s standards on handling and roadholding, but that was at least partly due to softer North American chassis settings.
On northern California’s twisting coastal ‘Route 1’, the Jetta felt like a larger and slightly more cumbersome drive than the old car, and lacked a little of the trademark precision of European VWs.
A flexible engine and adaptable DSG gearbox made the Jetta feel a fast enough performer too, with a generous reserve of power for overtaking. Against those second-string family saloons, provided VW delivers on the quality promises it’s making about the European versions of the Jetta, we can well imagine that it’ll find a keen following in the UK. Unless they make it an estate (which would make the Golf Variant redundant) it won't cut it in Europe.
God this is a very bland and boring car.Its bigger than the outgoing model so how big will the next Passat be??massive!!!!
The current Golf Estate is based on the Jetta platform as the previous Golf Estate was based on the Bora. The Jetta was built in Mexico for the UK until the end of 2008 it's now built in South Africa. The 488's incredible engine and handling and open-top experience make for something very special indeed. The Isuzu D-Max is starting to show its age; after a drive in the range-topping Blade version, is it still competitive?

View all our exterior pictures of the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta as well as interior photos, interactive virtual tours and colors. The Volkswagen CC (Comfort Coupe) is the brand’s exclusive Sedan coupe version, or the gran coupe as some call it. The older CC is based on the Volkswagen Passat, with a gran coupe body and some extra bits here and there but that still doesn’t further differentiate it from the Passat.
The 2017 Volkswagen CC will be based on the European spec 2015 Volkswagen Passat (Shown Above) sharing the same MQB platform. The Tesla Roadster 2.5 features improvements in design and technology, including a new front fascia, rear diffuser, improved seat comfort, sound dampening and an optional large touch screen navigation system with back-up camera. It’s headed to UK showrooms in spring 2011, but it’ll be bigger news in the US, a market much keener on compact saloons for which this improved and enlarged version of VW’s Golf-based four-door has been expressely designed. Previous versions of its Jetta and Passat have been over-priced and over-specified for US tastes, it says, and also extremely difficult to make a profit from, having been built in Europe and imported to the US. Which makes it as cheap as a Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic saloon; cheaper even than a Chevy Cruze in Chevrolet’s home market. While entry-level US Jettas make do with cheaper multi-point injection petrol engines, less standard equipment, hydraulic power steering, a torsion beam rear axle and slightly harder cabin plastics, British ones will get more expensive TSI and TDI powerplants, multi-link rear suspension, electro-mechanical power steering and proper slush-moulded dashboards. In the main, the car’s cabin fixtures and fittings felt solid and expensive, in line with those of a familiar European Golf.
However, it provided just enough cornering composure to make for a sporting drive at times, without compromising the above-average refinement expected of a saloon car. Especially if your initial reaction was to dismiss this new Jetta as the usual pokey old Golf saloon, because you’ll be surprised at how capacious it is, and therefore at the value it represents.
By the middle of 2011 it will be offering a larger, more upmarket and more expensive new Passat to those who might otherwise buy a BMW 3-series or a high-end Ford Mondeo.
It’s not quite a Skoda Superb with a VW badge on the nose, but it has a little of the Skoda’s magic ingredient: it just seems to deliver more than expected for your money. What does this 567bhp range-topping brute have to offer, seeing as it costs more than ?100,000? The Volkswagen CC got a mid-cycle updated back in 2013 and it is already getting old in the eyes of buyers although we think it still looks stunning.


In order to change that, Volkswagen is embarking on making the CC more premium, and also having it sit on a longer wheelbase with unique styling to match.
Volkswagen is also rumored to release a 10 speed DSG dual clutch transmission in 2016-2017 which should also make it into the new CC. Dubbed the Roadster 2.5, the most obvious visible tweaks for the Lotus Elise-based sports car are a new front bumper and a faux diffuser at the rear.
Improved interior sound reduction techniques, including new front fender liner material, make the cabin even quieter. But with 70mm of that extra length gone into the wheelbase, the Jetta’s now a cleverly packaged, surprisingly accommodating passenger car. It wasn’t quite as well isolated from wind and road noise, and didn’t quite have the same hushed and absorbent secondary ride as the Golf. And at the cheaper and more compact end of the market, VW will have this new Jetta to put up against the Renault Laguna, Volvo S40 and Citroen C5.
That's quite a saving so it really is down to badge blinkerdness if you go for this, especially as it looks like a Civic saloon, albeit, a very large one.
But for those looking to get the latest so you can expect to see the new 2017 Volkswagen CC during the Geneva Motor Show in March. The new Volkswagen CC should make it into the U.S markets by late 2016 and to the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Dubai specifically by early 2017 as well as other GCC Countries.
Golf-derived it may be, but there’s more legroom in the back of the new Jetta than you’ll find in a Honda Accord, Seat Exeo or Volvo S40, and enough head and shoulder space for a 6ft 3in occupant to get truly comfortable. Still, its rolling refinement felt good enough to put the likes of the Renault Laguna and Honda Accord to shame.
