Volkswagen teases the next-gen Jetta on Canadian website

Volkswagen teases the next-gen Jetta on Canadian website

The German giant has discreetly started the teaser campaign for the all-new next generation Jetta for the North American market. The sedan has been teased on the official Canadian website confirming a reveal at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2018.

There is little information available at the moment regarding the seventh generation Jetta. However, we know that the new Jetta will adopt the VW Group’s versatile MQB platform. The D-segment sedan was spotted undisguised in Mexico a few months back.  According to recent reports, the car will grow in dimension and adopt a modern and ‘emotional’ look.

Riding on the new platform will also help the Mk7 Jetta to lose a considerable amount of weight despite the larger footprint, compared to the outgoing car. No details about the engine options are available at the moment. But the MY 2019 Jetta is expected to share the powertrain with the Tiguan which means that the sedan will come with a 1.5-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel engine options. Transmission options would be a five-speed manual or the new eight-speed automatic gearbox. 

The new gen Jetta will be assembled at VW’s facility in Puebla, Mexico and be sent to the Brazilian market. In India, however, Volkswagen has no plans to bring in the new gen Jetta. The older, PQ35 platform Jetta was introduced in the Indian market back in 2011 and has been discontinued lately owing to the poor demand. So instead of the D-segment sedan, the German giant is expected to introduce the recently-launched T-Roc crossover in India.
