All about: Volkswagen Jetta cars

German automaker Volkswagen produces the Volkswagen Jetta. It is a small, family vehicle, that has been in production since 1979. This article will give an overview on Volkswagen Jetta cars.

Origins

Design and demand Jetta cars were designed for the saloon sector, and have been marketed over through various guises, such as the Bora, Jetta City, City Jetta, the Sagitar and the Vento. As of 2011, 9.6 million Jettas have been sold world-wide, and the highest number of demand for the Jetta is found in the US.
History of the Jetta The original Jetta was created, by adding a standard looking boot to a Golf hatchback. The overall design was then made more distinctive from the Golf by making some alterations. The changes from generation to generation are usually, mainly made to the front. The car has been available in a two and four door saloon, and the five door estate. All versions are five-seaters. Jetta's name
The Jetta's name comes from the Atlantic jet stream. At this time, in the history of Volkswagen, the company was very keen on naming its vehicles after
well-known winds. These included the VW Bora, the Passat and the Scirocco.

The newest generation

The most modern Jetta is sixth generation, and was referred to as the NCS (New Compact Sedan) over the period of its development. Features of the Jetta VW
This Jetta VW was unveiled to the public in June 2010. It is larger than previous models, and also cheaper to make. This means that it can be set at a lower price-making. Hence, it is more competitive against cars, such as the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla, its main rivals. Aim of VW
VW's aim is to sell 800,000 of these cars in the US by 2018, and production takes place at the VW plant in Puebla, Mexico. Longer wheel-base
The new Jetta no longer shares any of the same body panels as the Golf, and it also has a longer wheel-base. Cutting of costs
In a bid to increase sales in North America, VW has taken the car out of premium compact car sector. This meant that costs needed to be cut, so a cheaper upholstery was used and also a synthetic leather was offered, rather then real leather.
