Coming to the yet to launch petrol version of Volkswagen Jetta that is supposed to set the pedestal on the right foot, the diesel version could not create much flutter amongst the potential customers.

Half of the battle is won with the looks and the new Volkswagen Jetta comes with art nouveau features that can make the most jaded customer sigh.

The earlier version of Jetta was apparently akin to the old Golf with a boot tagged on, whereas this new Volkswagen Jetta seems to have just the right touch of size and profile.

Earlier, Volkswagen Jetta was expected to come with 1.8L TSI petrol mill. Now the clouds are clear and what has caught the sunshine is the 1.4L TSI petrol engine that will be seen under the hood of the petrol variant.

The 1.4L TSI petrol mill will make its debut in India with Volkswagen Jetta and is good to yield 120 Bhp of peak power and 201 Nm of torque, which is around 33 per cent less than the 1.8L TSI engine yields. However, what Jetta loses in power gains in terms of pricing and fuel efficiency.

The dilemma with the Jetta is that you feel a bit queasy. While value on the inside is first-rate and build quality is leagues better than Vento's, VW has omitted some essential features like climate control, leather upholstery and even Bluetooth.

So, since this car is well built and well put together; will it really indulge you particularly at a price tag of around Rs 20 lakh, it surely does feel a bit parsimonious!
