Volkswagen Jetta 2008 reviews

Fair handling, good interior room, fuel economy

Poor base engines, bloated looks, not really German

Volkswagen Jetta 2008 Overview

This VW marks the return of the Jetta nameplate to the Middle East, replacing the Bora lineup. However, it could have been better. Engines choices include a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder unit and an odd 2.5-litre 5-cylinder unit that is conspicuously underpowered for its size. Both engines are equipped with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or the new 6-speed Tiptronic automatic. The Jetta GLI debuted later in 2008, with a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbo engine and 6-speed DSG automanual gearbox. Volkswagens are known for better-than-average handling, and the new Jetta is said to be no exception. The new Jetta is larger than the previous Bora, and it features a more spacious interior stuffed with convenience and lavished with Volkswagen's attention to detail. Even the least-expensive model offers an elegant, high-quality cabin. Standard equipment include power windows, AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo, power outside mirrors, split/folding rear seats, remote central power locking, front airbags, side-impact airbags, ABS brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and available electronic stability control. The GLI exclusively gets black-out body trim, 17-inch wheels, and a slightly-upgraded interior.
