Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) have today announced that they are now accepting pre-bookings for the new Volkswagen Jetta, a week ahead of the new car’s official launch. There will be three variants made available: Trendline, Comfortline and Highline, with power coming from the familiar 1.4 TSI single-turbo engine that is mated to a 7-speed DSG making 150PS/250Nm.
With the new Jetta gaining its Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) status, thanks in part of its start/stop and regenerative braking functions, VPCM estimates prices to be between RM110,000 to RM130,000 – this is cheaper than the previous generation Jetta by some RM20,000.
Standard safety tech will include six airbags, ESC, Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) and hill-hold. A choice of four colours will be available: Candy White, Platinum Grey, Reflex Silver and Deep Black and pre-bookings can be made from today, or during a special Jetta Pre-Booking Weekend from 24-25th Septermber (with extended opening hours) at authorized Volkswagen dealerships nationwide.
Stay tuned for our coverage of the launch of the new Jetta next week!
