On two previous occasions we speculated on variants of cars weeks before their launch and got them right. We're talking about the Hyundai Verna (part one and part two) and Toyota Etios Liva (part one and part two), if you are new here.

Today we're attempting to get three on three with details on the new VW Jetta expected in India in August. With a few weeks to go for the launch, Volkswagen can change its mind on the equipment. So we're going to classify this information as speculation.

The quality on the new Jetta is expected to inch closer to Audi levels and one can sense by just looking solid improvement of finish and material usage compared to the current model. The new Jetta like most other Volkswagens will be offered in three trims - Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. Three options are provided on the Highline variant's interiors with base color as Black - Beige, Black or Plum.

Highline Specs: 140 Bhp 2.0 TDI + Cruise control + Leather interiors with trim options + Touch screen with Bluetooth and USB + Sunroof + 8 Airbags + DSG Gearbox + ESP + Parktronic

Comfortline Specs: 140 bhp 2.0 TDI + Manual transmission + Touch screen player with Bluetooth and USB + 6 Airbags + leather interior + ESP + Parktronic

Trendline Specs: 140 bhp 2.0 TDI + Manual transmission + simple music player + 6 Airbags + fabric interior + ESP + Parktronic

As we said back in April, Bluemotion technology pack will not be present on the Jetta. Prices are expected to remain at the current levels, but expect aggressive marketing campaigns.
