The Mk6 Jetta
It now gets even more confusing it too is also known as the Bora, Vento or Sagitar
Although no longer sharing any body panels with the Golf and having a longer wheelbase, this generation was partly based on the same PQ35 platform.
Volkswagen's target of increasing its North American sales removed the Jetta from the premium compact car market. This forced many cost-cutting measures to be made for the North American models, which included a lower quality trim material for the interior and the replacement of leather with leatherette as an optional seating upholstery. Leather was still available on Canadian-spec models. The North American version also lost the multi-link rear suspension of the previous generation on lower-end models until the 2015 model year. The SEL Premium model retains the upscale soft touch interior, as well as the multi-link independent rear suspension found on the GLI, though softened for a more comfortable ride. It also has as standard a 6-speed sequential manual DSG gearbox, with Sport and Tiptronic modes.
The sixth-generation Jetta went on sale on 22 July 2010 in Mexico, thus becoming one of the only countries in the world where both the fourth (sold as the Volkswagen Clásico), and sixth generation Jetta were available simultaneously. (Both models are also both available in Colombia and Argentina). The sixth generation Jetta replaced the fifth, known in Mexico as the Volkswagen Bora. A special edition called the "Volkswagen Jetta Edición Especial Bicentenario" and approved by the Mexican Federal Government commemorates that country's 200th anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence, on 16 September 1810. It is also the first car in Mexico with granted permission to use an official government logo (a "2010" plaque). It was launched in India on 17 August 2011. Volkswagen launched the 2015 Jetta facelift in the Indian car market on 17 February 2015. The sedan came with a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kit, and is locally assembled at Volkswagen's Chakan factory, near Pune.
It was launched in Australia and South Africa in September 2011.
The revised 2015 Jetta has secured the highest ratings from most of the key crash testing agencies across the world: Top pick+ in IIHS, 5 stars in NHTSA, 5 stars each in EURONCAP and AUSNCAP. It is recognised as one of the safest vehicles in its class.
This was to be the last model produced in the UK as of November 2017 after 379 models were sold between 1 January and 1 October 2017. Orders closed in September 2017. In January 2018, Volkswagen axed the Jetta in Europe as sales fell by a quarter in 2017 with just over 5,000 units being sold all year. Sales slipped in the US by 4.4%. This was however not to be the case.
Engines from the MK5 Jetta carried over included the 127 kW (170 hp; 177 PS) 2.5 L (five-cylinder) as well as the economy-minded 104 kW (140 hp; 142 PS) 2.0 TDI (diesel) engine. A Turbo Hybrid, 111 kW (149 hp; 151 PS) 1.4 L TSI intercooled turbocharged engine mated with a 20 kW (27 hp; 27 PS) electric motor providing a combined 127 kW (170 hp; 173 PS) and 249 N⋅m (184 ft⋅lb) became available in 2013, due to Hybrid popularity in North America. The Jetta Turbo Hybrid has an estimated combined fuel economy of 5.2 L/100 km (54 mpg‑imp; 45 mpg‑US). The 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo Hybrid was unveiled in January 2012 at the North American International Auto Show.
In North America, the base model (S in the US, Trendline in Canada) received a 2.0-liter 8-valve four-cylinder engine with 86 kW (115 hp; 117 PS) and 169 N⋅m (125 lbf⋅ft) torque. Sales of the 2013 model year Jetta Turbo Hybrid are scheduled to begin in the U.S. by late 2012. From model year 2016 onward, American S and SE models, and Canadian models Trendline and Comfortline Jettas would receive a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine that produces 150 hp (150 PS; 110 kW) and 184 lb⋅ft (249 N⋅m) of torque. This engine replaced the 2.0-litre in those markets.
In 2014, VW replaced the 2.5 L inline 5 with the new 1.8 L TSI turbo-charged 4 cylinder. Based on VW's EA888 platform, the 1.8 TSI is listed as one of Ward's 10 Best Engines for 2014, producing 127 kW (170 hp; 173 PS) and 249 N⋅m (184 ft⋅lb) of torque, all while achieving an EPA rating of 25 MPG city / 36 MPG highway. Other updates for 2014 include an independent multilink rear suspension as found in European counterparts, and electronic power steering (1.8 TSI models only.) In Europe, the engine range consists of the 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI (122 or 160 PS), 2.0 TSI, 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI engines. The European version will differ in some respects, particularly in having multi-link suspension at the rear. The European version will also incorporate soft-touch plastics on most of the dashboard (not the doors for this generation), and the rear seat center air vents have been restored. For the 2015 model year, Volkswagen made numerous improvements to the Jetta such as new front and rear fascias, headlights, reworked interior, fully independent suspension for all US models, a suite of driver-assistance systems such as blind spot monitoring, cross traffic alert, and standard rearview camera. In 2016, the Hybrid model was discontinued from the U.S Market and was replaced by a new 1.4 engine replaced the TDI and hybrid models.
