The New Jetta NF Readying for Launch

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

The new VW Jetta NF is readying itself for production, the NF will replace the mark 2 Jetta which seems to have been on Chinese roads for seemingly ever. The old Jetta is truly a workhorse, it was used as a taxi, police vehicle, government fleet car, and of course home users bought it as parts were spare cheap and the car could be run on
deferred maintenance indefinitely.

The next generation of NF is based on a stretched Polo platform that is shared with the Skoda Fabia and of course the Skoda Rapid sedan that is heading our way in late 2012. Engines for the Jetta are 1.4L and 1.6L, the latter will probably be lapped up by those taxi ranks that need new cars whilst the smaller 1.4L will probably go to home users – if anyone prefers to buy this over the Polo sedan or VW Bora that is.

The new Jetta NF will go into production in Chengdu via the FAW-VW Joint Venture in 2012 although production is quite small at 14,000 units, 2013 will see production ramped up to 270,000 vehicles which shows that this car is going to be big for FAW-VW, or at least they believe it will be.

    To me it looks to small for use as a taxi. Really it looks not much different to Polo saloon. Then again most VWs look the same anyway!
