Tyre(s) and Alloys are also an important part of any car. They play a major role in the ride quality of the car apart from providing the much required aesthetic appeal. The new VW Jetta comes fitted with 205/55/R16 spec Good Year Tyre(s) and alloys. The 5 spoke design of these alloys provide the sporty feel to the car. With the Tyre(s) another significant aspect of the car's ride quality is the suspension, the new VW Jetta has Coil spring with shock absorbers and suspension stabilizer in the front and Multi Link Suspension in the rear also is equipped with stabilizer.
Coming to the heart of the car i.e the Engine and the transmission that drives it. The new VW Jetta has been launched with 2 engine choices i.e 1.4 L Petrol and the 2.0 L Diesel TDI. The transmission choices offered by VW in this new Jetta are 6 Speed Manual and 6 Speed Automatic DSG for fast and super smooth gear changes. The sporty gear-knob on the other other hand does give a stylish look to the gear console that is accented with chrome surround.
The new Jetta comes with a multi functional steering wheel that houses the audio controls and also the Cruise Control apart from the obvious driver side airbag. The host of controls on the steering shall let the driver control music, radio etc by click of a button itself without removing the hands from the steering. On the other hand the Cruise Control Feature regulates the driving speed electronically and helps the driver to enjoy driving rather than developing fatigue. It ensures that the car is driven smoothly at a fixed/set speed.
Safety is always of prime concern both for the manufacturer and the buyer. Hence, VW has made it a point to provide 6 Airbags as standard along with significant features like ABS
, ESP, Hill Hold Control and EDL. This extensive safety program in the new Jetta surely shall provide utmost safety to the drivers and co-passengers.
Talking about the Multi-Info Display unit in new Jetta, the entertainment panel is integrated with 6 CD changer and a simple interactive interface. It also has features like Aux. To have the superb acoustic feel in the car, the Jetta comes with 8 speakers.
If I talk about the Speedometer cluster in the new Jetta then it has 2-dial cluster with MID. The redesigned speedometer cluster definitely gives the interiors that sporty aura.
