Volkswagen Jetta Trendline 1.4 TSI (DSG) Review
Ready steady Jetta

The Jetta gained much notoriety in the past for being one of the key models responsible for Volkswagen’s sales boom during the time when COE premiums were low. And it’s easy to see why. It’s an attractive package of German build quality paired with the spaciousness and economy that one looks for in a family car. On top of that Volkswagen has made it quite hard to ignore with a price tag that seems more Japanese than Continental.

The new Jetta keeps to its tried and tested ingredients which include the 122bhp engine that helps it sit comfortably within the Category A COE. This puts the German in direct contention with the Toyota Corolla Altis.

The general profile of the new car remains familiar but there are obvious differences in its exterior design. The front fascia has been completely reworked to feature a more aerodynamic design which reduces drag by 10 per cent. The streamlined front gives the new car a sportier appeal which is further enhanced by the new daytime running light LED arrangement that gives the car a distinctive visual profile at night.

I like the service provided. It's a one stop service center. Received follow up after receiving the highest quote. No unneccessary haggling from professional dealers.
