The new Volkswagen Jetta Sportline has been launched on the Chinese auto market, priced at 134.800 yuan. The Jetta Sportline is a sporty variant of the China-only Volkswagen Jetta sedan. The Sportline comes with a racy body kit, a sporty black upper grille, a sporty black lower grille, a subtle spoiler at the back, speedy multispoke alloys, and some sporty stitching inside.
The Jetta is made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. This is the standard Jetta for comparison. Price starts at 82.800 yuan and ends at 119.300 yuan. Engines: 90hp 1.4 and a 110hp 1.6, both mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.
And now for the good news! Unlike all other sporty Volkswagen in China the Jetta Sportline actually gets more power. The Sportline comes with a 1.4 TSI turbo with a hefty 131 horses and 225hp, mated to a 7-speed DSG. The engine is exclusive for the Sportline and makes it a serious pocket rocket. Top speed is 200 kilometer per hour and 0-100 is gone in 9.2 seconds. A seriously fast Jetta this in, comparable in character to the famous 2002 Bora R.
Special stitching on gear lever. No stitching on seats, and nothing else special.
Spoiler very stealthy, chromed exhaust pipes, doorhandles in body color. Good looking Jetta. But…
