A new crossover Jetta VS7 demonstrated In ChinaNovember 25, 2019
At the auto show in Guangzhou, the presentation of the serial crossover Jetta VS7 took place.
It is worth mentioning that Jetta is a separate brand that Volkswagen has created for the sale of affordable cars in China. The joint FAW-Volkswagen plant has already launched a compact Jetta VS5 crossover and a VA3 sedan at the local car market, and now the Jetta VS7 SUV has expanded its lineup.
The new model is an extended variation of the VS5 cross, which, in turn, is based on the same platform as the Skoda Karoq. The VS7 has a length of 4624 mm, a width of 1841 mm, a height of 1633 mm, and a wheelbase of 2730 mm. In the design of the novelty used many solutions from the “younger brother”. At the same time, the VS7 has original bumpers and an improved glazing line.
Inside the car there is a fully touch control unit for the air conditioning system; instead of a mechanical parking brake, an electric drive button has appeared. Also, the car was equipped with a panoramic roof, all-round cameras and LED headlights. But the instrument panel is only analog with a conventional monochrome display in the central area.
Jetta VS7 is equipped with a 1.4-liter turbo engine with a return of 150 hp. The engine is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission from Aisin. However, the all-wheel drive system is not even offered as an option.
In China, the novelty will appear in December this year. It is estimated that the crossover will cost from 92.8 thousand yuan
