VW Will Reveal Next-Gen Jetta in January 2018

  • Published On: 23 October 2017

The car is built on the company’s MQB platform and will be shown at the North American International Auto Show in January 2018.

VW North America CEO Hinrich Woebcken confirmed that the new Jetta will debut at the upcoming North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2018. The new car will be lighter and stiffer and will offer more space inside, thanks to its longer wheelbase.

The silhouette of the car is similar to the outgoing model, but the car now looks a bit longer. The New Jetta could share engines with the Tiguan SUV, so the car could be fitted with a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol motor, a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol in various states of tune and a 2.0-litre diesel engine.

Since the 2011 launch of the VW Jetta in India, until August 2017, the model has sold a total of 14,917 units. The new seventh-gen Jetta may not be produced for right-hand-drive markets like South Africa, India and the UK, which means VW may not have any plans to bring it here.
