New Car: 2011 Volkswagen Jetta

In its first major stride toward achieving a rather batty dream of selling some 800,000 vehicles in the U.S. by 2018, Volkswagen has rolled out its new 2011 Jetta. Known during its development as the New Compact Sedan (NCS), the Jetta serves an important role in VW’s aggressive U.S. product strategy, which makes VeeDub’s decision not to unveil the new Jetta at a major auto show rather unusual.

What we know right now is that the 2011 Jetta will be offered in S, SE, SEL, and TDI trims, with the sporty GLI—basically a GTI sedan—also returning. VW has confirmed that the TDI will again be powered by the miserly 2.0-liter turbo-diesel. The remaining three engine options will include naturally aspirated and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinders and the 2.5-liter inline-five. All Jettas will be offered with a manual transmission as standard and either an automatic or DSG automated manual as an option, depending on trim.
