With its smooth ride, spacious interior, cavernous 510-litre boot and terrific towing ability, the Volkswagen Jetta has always been a great car in which to ‘jet’ away, and now it offers better value than ever, thanks to the introduction of the Jetta Limited Edition.
Based on the popular Jetta SE, the Jetta Limited Edition packs in £2,900-worth of extra equipment for a premium of just £160. Only 450 of these models are available, and they are in Volkswagen Retailers now at a price of £20,750 RRP OTR.
Every Jetta Limited Edition comes with a super-frugal 1.6-litre 105 PS TDI engine with BlueMotion Technology and a five-speed gearbox, returning 67.3 mpg on the combined cycle and emitting just 105 g/km of CO2, meaning it qualifies for free first-year VED, and just £20 per annum thereafter.
But while it might be miserly at the pumps, the Jetta Limited Edition doesn’t skimp on the luxuries. Standard SE features include a leather-trimmed handbrake, gear knob and multifunction steering wheel, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, USB and iPod audio connections and cruise control.
On top of these, the Jetta Limited Edition adds Volkswagen’s RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation system, front fog lights, front and rear parking sensors, rear tinted glass, 16-inch ‘Perth’ alloys and a Convenience Pack consisting of an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electrically foldable door mirrors with puddle lights, and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.
The Jetta Limited Edition comes in three colours: Deep Black Pearl, or Reflex Silver or Platinum Grey Metallic.
The Volkswagen Jetta Sport 2.0-litre TDI DSG was voted The Caravan Club Towcar of the Year 2012 and 2013. It is the only car to have won this prestigious title for two consecutive years. The Jetta Limited Edition has a towing capacity of 1,400 kg (braked, 12 per cent incline), with a maximum noseweight capacity of 75 kg.
