For the RM123k Jetta Club Edition variant, the only thing that’s new to the C-Segment sedan is on the inside – a new Blaupunkt Philadelphia 835 touchscreen head unit. The 7-inch screen comes with GPS navigation (Garmin) as well. Everything else remains the same and it retains the same fabric seats as before. Unlike the Sport Edition, this variant looks exactly the same on the outside, featuring the same 16-inch alloys with 205/55 R16 series rubbers.

Next up is the Jetta Sport Edition which costs a full RM10,000 more and for that you get Volkswagen’s original Zubehor full bodykit, a lip spoiler and new 17-inch Silex alloy wheels wrapped with 225/45 R17 Goodyear Assurance TripleMax tyres. Both variants however, are priced cheaper than the normal Jetta CKD, which is sold at RM134,888 (without insurance) and will be sold concurrently.

Under the hood is the same twincharged 1.4-litre TSI engine making 158 hp at 5,800 rpm and 240 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. It’s paired to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox that drives the front wheels. The century sprint is done in 8.3 seconds before topping out at 221 km/h. Fuel economy is rated at a combined 6 litres per 100km.

As per all Volkswagens, both limited edition Jettas come with a 5-year with unlimited mileage warranty programme and a 5-year mobility guarantee package. There are four colours to choose from – Candy White, Reflex Silver, Platinum Grey, and Deep Black. Also, if you’ve missed the news, Volkswagen is running their 0% interest campaign for the Golf 1.4, Jetta 1.4, Tiguan 1.4 and Passat 1.8.
