Jetta is not based on MQB platform. It uses the older PQ35 platform. Other cars which use PQ35 Platform are Skoda Octavia II(Laura in India), Skoda Yeti and Audi Q3.

Most future VAG group releases ranging from Pint sized Polo to XL sized Superb will use the common MQB platform.

The only workshop that has kept up to standard of bhpians is VW Downtown Lalbaug. They take time to finish work would its always the best compared to other workshops, VW Thane & Navi Mumbai. Given VW Downtown a try you shouldn't be disappointed.

This has been confirmed by almost all the dealers. The dealer said the demo cars will arrive around novemeber 2week. Only VW Deccan has the old jetta right now. Only 2 Jetta's AT left in the entire city (Again confirmed by all the dealers).

I totally agree with kdeepakk! I am in US these days and here also, I haven't seen any update on Jetta and neither the 2014 Jetta has the features listed here. All I could find that matches what you have mentioned is this but then its not there on the VW official site.

Check the Jetta Hybrid and the GLI. Both come with projector lights with LED DRL's.

That's probably what they will bring in.

And these features are pretty much a must to survive against the Octavia.

I dont think so, no fooling around. Confirmed news. Moreover i found this link

http://www.motoroids.com/news/volksw...around-corner/

And i got a call again today. The price was to be announced today. But VW didnt, it seems the leftover stock will be pushed till december and car would be launced in January. Discounts for the month of Novemeber will be heavy.

Oh !! I am very much pleased and relieved to hear the jetta facelift coming . Was shying away from this car due to lack of Xenons . Glad VW is coming with a better model . I hope they provide rear parking camera and true keyless entry with the car . Also VW please dont provide us useless features such as panoramic sunroof and also please dont change the suspension setup to a cheaper one !! . If u get a car with all the above mentioned goodies and even at a slightly higher price than the octavia u have urself a customer !!!!

GLI is what I quoted in my comment but was not able to find similar looking model on the VW.com until I went back and had a look at the Hybrid.

If this is what we would be getting in India, nothing could beat that! Absence ACC and the projector headlamps were the only thing I found as the missing "must haves" from Jetta. Yet, I had gone ahead and booked a Jetta since I anyways loved the car. And then I had to move to the US for a year and cancel my booking. It now seems like a blessing in disguise! And I am pretty sure, new Jetta would be out by the time I return!!

Just one thing though, Jetta was/is anyways overpriced for the specs it has. Where will this upgrade take the price to?

I don't think key-less entry or push start will make it on the new model. And somewhere i have a fear that the price will go up, more than the new Octavia. The SE said the car may come with leather seats and other add-ons(skeptical). If we look at the current pricing of both the brands it may be positioned higher.

Let us hope that things turn out better.

If i am not wrong the current Jetta is priced around 18 lk ( ex-showroom ) . So VW cant raise the price of the car by 2 lakhs for a facelift. I assume they would stick close to the current price tag . I would personally be happy if i get keyless entry . Come on VW even the Hyundai Grand i10 has it !! .

The on road price in chennai is around 22.63 lakhs for the new Jetta highline 2.0 dsg. The salesman says that the price has been dropped. It was around 22.90 earlier. Wish the car atleast came with the updated engine and gearbox in the same tune as the Octavia . But he confirmed that its still the same old one.

Yes, i got the same confirmation today, but could not digest the same. It looks like there is no price increase. New Jetta is mor value for money than its skoda sibling. Do you have any information on the release date ?
