Volkswagen Jetta 1.4L petrol version to launch in April 2012

Volkswagen Jetta, a popular premium sedan in the Indian market, will soon be having a new member in the family of its variants. The Indian unit of the German auto giant Volkswagen will be launching a petrol version of the Jetta sedan in the Indian market in April 2012.

The all new Jetta Petrol will come powered by a 1.4-litre TSI petrol power train which is capable of generating a maximum power of 120 bhp, which will be delivering a considerably high fuel economy as compared the other Volkswagen Group sedans like Skoda Laura and Skoda Superb. Both Laura and Superb model have been offered with a 1.8 TSI petrol engine in the Indian market, and market watchers had been speculating that the company will roll-out the same engine in the Jetta petrol version, but the firm has decided to give more fuel efficient 1.4-litre TSI engine to Jetta.

Now, as the 1.4 TSI Jetta petrol engine will be price more competitively and will be delivering a higher fuel economy, it will surely give a tough fight to its own group sibling Skoda Laura.
