The novelty will be released under the budget brand Jetta, which was recently sent to independent navigation. Prior to this, the Jetta was known as one of the Volkswagen models.

On the eve of the Chinese Ministry of Industry showed the first official photos of the seven-seater crossover Jetta VS7, based on the Skoda Karoq platform. The appearance of the budget SUV is made in the style of its “younger brother” – the Jetta VS5 crossover, built on the basis of the best-selling Volkswagen Tharu. Unlike its predecessor, the novelty received a different glazing line and modified bumpers. Otherwise, these two models are very similar to each other. When designing the interior of the Jetta VS7, the manufacturer also turned to VS5.

At the same time, the three-row crossover got a new climate control unit and a glass roof.

┬áDimensions Jetta VS7 reach the following indicators: length – 4 624 mm, width – 1 841 mm, height – 1 633 mm, wheelbase – 2 730 mm. It surpasses VW Tiguan in these parameters. The new budget cross drives a 1.4-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 150 horsepower, combined with 6AKPP from Aisin. But the new drive does not rely on all-wheel drive. Sales Jetta VS7 in the Middle Kingdom car market will start in October. According to preliminary information, the minimum price tag for the model will start at 92,800 yuan. The maximum price tag is 121,800 yuan.
