    Thread: Sixth Generation Volkswagen Jetta Debuts - Official Pics!

    1. 06-15-2010 06:41 PM #51
      I'm struck by the redesign with an overwhelming sense of "Meh." I was expecting something...sexier?

      And since the ugly tail end of the current Jetta wagon isn't getting any much-needed love this year, I guess I'm back to deciding between GTI or Golf TDI - or waiting another year entirely.

      Less Jetta, more Katy Perry.

      seriously though, pretty "meh" in my opinion as well. really can't picture a MEAN version of this car.

      Downsized engines with turbo (and compressor). A 1,4L offers basically the same power (hp and torque) as the old VR6 with great milage. Why stay in the olden days when technology is moving on.

      Uhm....You need to shut your mouth. I could go on for days about half the stuff we don't get here in the States but I'll just sum it all up with 1 particular thing...

      1.8T Jetta 2001

      Is it just me, or is this car just very boring and generic looking? I mean it doesnt really look much like a previous Jetta. I mean you could put another badge and model on it, and pass it off as someone else's car.

      I mean no one would mistake a BMW or a Mercedes, but this car could belong to almost anybody.

      About what I expected it to look like based off of the Jetta Coupe concept. I am personally hoping they do release the Jetta Coupe with the 2.0T as the Jetta just has gotten too big for me. I think my Mk5 Jetta is too big personally. Will be interesting to see what the GLI looks like though....

      I like it overall. I'm sure that the base 2.0L will not be the old 2.slo. For sure will be a updated version, lets all just see what VW has to offer before going off the deep end. After all the 2.0 turbo will have a home in the GLI, correct?

      The tail is screaming B8 A4 styling.

      A company as "forward thinking" as VW should, in my opinion, design around new ideas rather than drawing from other ideas in their line-up. I could understand if it were more akin to a previous edition Jetta, Golf, etc. but this is just odd to me. Unless I'm seeing something that totally doesn't exist... maybe pictures will illustrate this?

      The 1.4 TSI makes 122 hp & 147 lb-ft... that's not basically the same power & tq as the outgoing 2.8L DOHC VR6, not even the SOHC VR6.

      Plus, the 1.4 TSI requires 95 RON (roughly 91 AKI)--- people that buy the Jetta won't want buy a car that requires premium to operate.

      There are 2.0T owners out there that don't want to use premium on their cars

      The new Jetta even gets Katy Perry excited!



      Looks like a car that we will be seeing lots of on the street. Nothing overwhelming appealing like the CC but still better than the competition.

      Prepare to be dissappointed. The "2.0" In a general sense has been around since 1974 in the first Rabbits. My 1.8L 8v Scirocco had 364,000 miles on the original motor, never opened, before I sold it. The 2.0 that you think of, is the same general design with newer fuel injection and such. I personally hate the 2.5. It drives like a 4 and drinks like a 6.

      I stand corrected.... here is what jaime wrote:

      The Jetta VI has grown over three inches in length when compared to the previous version, with 2.6 of those inches being realized as additional rear legroom. The base models (S and SE) will also see the return of the two-liter four-cylinder from the fourth-genereation car, but the 2.5-liter five-cylinder will be available on those trim levels, as well as the SEL. If you're a fan of the two-liter turbocharged engine seen elsewhere in the range, you'll have to hold out for the GLI model, which won't be available until next year. The GLI will also afford you multilink rear suspension, as well as an expected appearance upgrade.

      How cheap can VW get? You have to be kidding me. The cheapest cars sold in America have these basic gauges. And a PUSH BUTTON to start the car? Come on VW, kill the gimmics.

      I like it. Can't wait to see the GLI. Note to VW: Please add 4Motion (and send over the New Scirocco too)!

      It's sporty. Remember the 2000+ Celica? It is digital coolant & fuel gauge

      The Cobalt has digital coolant temp gauge (but the Aveo has the analog ones)

      The Yaris is missing the analog fuel/temp gauges

      The Accent is missing the analog fuel/temp gauges

      The Forte is missing the analog temp gauge......

      The New Beetle has an idiot light for the coolant temp

      Mixed feelings on this.

      The car as is, doesn't look like a forward evolution as one would expect. It stands to reason that every new iteration should somehow be nicer, more refined, have more options, new engine technology, etc.

      HOWEVER

      I've been secretly wishing for VW to go this direction for a long time. They need to get back to making reliable, well engineered, economical cars that can be fun to drive, for a reasonable price. This doesn't necessitate soft touch plastics, Audi level ergonomics, 250+ hp engines, etc.

      This is the embodiment of an old philosophy, being introduced to a new generation.

      I personally hope it goes over well.

      It's quite likely the 2.0 engine will be the 2.slow...

      Don't forget it is still being produced in Mexico for the Mk4.5 Jetta that's still on sale in Latin America. Quite easy to put it in the 2011 Jetta.

      VW still sells 2.0 equpped VW's in North American Market. Ever heard of Canada? http://www.vw.ca/ca/en_ca/models/city_golf.html
      Golf City is sold in Canada in 2010 and it should look somewhat familiar.

      2.0 in the base 2011 Jetta is the same 115 hp 2.0 that we love and remember.

      Just logged on, this looks fantastic! I'm excited, only drawback for me are the tail lights, which would look better if they weren't so similar to the new ugly audi tails

      GLI better look like the below.



      Not sure why but, with the whole unveiling it kinda reminded me of a late nineties Toyota Camry.
