New budget brand Jetta from Volkswagen introduced the first modelsMarch 25, 2019
We already wrote that the concern VAG Group, in cooperation with the Chinese manufacturer FAW, displays the name Jetta in a separate brand of affordable cars. The company will produce cars of the budget segment with its own design.
It was expected that the new brand Jetta (Chinese daughter Volkswagen-FAW), will debut with new models at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show. However, the company decided not to wait for the international event and presented the first three models as part of its own special event. In fact, the Jetta brand will occupy the budget niche of the Chinese market, and the models will be produced on the basis of obsolete generations of Volkswagen cars with their own features.
The premiere was held in Chinese Chengdu – Volkswagen-FAW factory is located here, which will become an assembly site for the new products presented. In the arsenal of the new brand so far three models: two crossovers and a sedan. Unfortunately, the company has not yet revealed the technical and price details of future new products, but eyewitnesses from the presentation claim that the company will present a 1.4-liter turbo engine, or 1.5- and 2.0-liter “aspirated” engines.
On sale the first model Jetta VS5 (five-seater crossover) will appear by September of this year. The senior VS7 crossover model will be introduced to the market only next year, and it is not yet known when the VA3 sedan will appear.
