Volkwagen will launch its latest model of Jetta executive sedan in India at 3:30 pm today.

The Highline variant will now have day-time LED running lights along with Xenon headlamps and dynamic cornering system. Volkswagen has also modified the shape of the headlamp as well the front grille.

“Drawing from the impeccable standards set by its predecessor, the New Jetta goes a notch further,” said Volkswagen in its invite for the India launch.

“While its bold design additions and sharp contours leave you mesmerised, its powerful engine and re-crafted interiors complete the enchantment,” it claimed.

The Jetta was originally is a small family car produced since 1979. Positioned to fill a sedan niche above the firm’s Golf hatchback offering, it has been marketed over six generations variously as the Atlantic, Fox, Vento, Bora, City Jetta, Jetta City, GLI, Jetta, Clasico, Voyage, and Sagitar.

The Jetta was originally adapted by adding a conventional trunk to the Golf hatchback, and some distinctive styling (usually the front end, and sometimes slight interior changes).

It has been offered in two- and four-door saloon (sedan), and five-door estate (station wagon) versions – all as five-seaters. As of 2005, over 6.6 million cars have been sold worldwide, over one-third in the United States alone. Since the original version in 1980, the car has grown in size and power with each successive generation, according to Wikipedia.

By mid-2011, almost 10 million Jettas have been produced and sold all over the world. As of April 2014, over 14 million had been sold with the car becoming Volkswagen’s top selling model.
