While our team is enjoying the trip at down under, we did a couple of road trips and took some challenges with the given road condition and climate. Indisputable, the drive is highly enjoyable compare to our usual road trip in back home.
In Brisbane, one of our team members spotted the new Volkswagen Jetta. Apparently, the new Jetta looks like Audi A4 from far and the front façade is typical a Volkswagen Polo and Golf.
Just in-time or I would say is so coincident, we received an email from the insider in VGM that the Volkswagen Jetta, Passat and Cross Touran are now launched in Malaysia in CBU form. In general, we have no idea why the local production is delayed.
The Jetta model is basically VW Golf in a sedan outer-shell. The engine specification is similar to the Golf 1.4 TSI. It is powered by twin-charged 1.4 TSI engine with 160PS and 240Nm of torque mated with 7-speed DSG transmission. The price starts from RM 149,888 (on-the-road without insurance). The car features with Volkswagen’s Climatronic air-conditioning system, a RCD310 audio system, Park Distance Control (PDC) for the front and rear, cruise control and seats covered in ‘Sienna’ fabric.
Besides the Jetta, the Passat is launched with a price from RM 184,888 (OTR without insurance) and powered by 1.8-litre TSI engine with 160PS and 250Nm of torque. Thirdly, the Volkswagen Cross Touran is priced from RM 166,888 (OTR without insurance). The 7-seater VW Cross Touran is equipped with 1.4 TSI engine with only 140HP and 220Nm of torque.
Since we are currently in the midst of road trips around QLD, NSW and VIC, we will come back with more info once we return to Kuala Lumpur. So stay tune with us!!
If you are interested to buy one now, you can visit your local VW authorised dealers. If you need one to be introduced, just drop us an email. Meantime, check out some photo shots from our insider after the jump.
