Video: 2011 Volkswagen Jetta officially revealed

After yesterday’s photo leak, the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta has been officially revealed by the German company.

As you can see, the new Jetta sports an increased size, thanks to an all-new platform, 3.5 inches longer than its predecessor, but also a new design, heavily influenced by the New Compact Coupe we saw a few months ago.

Gone is the half Golf half Passat Jetta which still managed to sell quite a number of units and now we have a much more attractive model, with increased size and upgraded systems that will replace the Passat in the US market.

Engine-wise, not a lot has changed, as US customers will still get the 2.5-liter inline-four and the 2.0-liter TDI units, present in the current Jetta, but also a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot, available in the Jetta GLI version. Manual and automatic transmissions are available, including the DSG seven-speed gearbox, optional for the turbocharged gasoline and the TDI.

A price has yet to be confirmed for the new Jetta, but voices are pegging it around $16,000.
