Exterior and Interior
Standing on a wheelbase of 104.4 inches, Jetta is 183.3 inches long, 70 inches wide and 57.2 inches long. It has a curb weight of 2900-3300 lbs. The appearance has been given a more striking look with the upgraded wider and taller three-bar grille. Rather than having the bumper rising up and meeting the grille, now you have the latter dropping down and meeting the bumper creating a very sophisticated aura. It has an innovatively done rear bumper, and fresh headlamps. You can either have running LED lights or bi-xenon elements. The rear has been given an aerodynamically designed trunk lid.
The interior is far classier than earlier versions and impressively done. Though it still bears the old minimalistic look with the door panels having tough plastic, the dashboard has received a noteworthy makeover. It has nice piano-black trim panels and tunneled gauges. Seats are strong and supportive.
