    To the Point: Debut in Europe: New Jetta causes a stir in the saloon world

    Volkswagen has reconceptualised, restyled and redimensioned the Jetta - a car that has been successful on all continents (over 9.6 million units sold). Now measuring 4.64 metres in length (+ 9.0 cm) it is closing the gap between the Golf (4.20 metres) and Passat (4.77 metres) more precisely in Europe. Visually, the new Jetta has also fully separated itself from the compact class best-seller, the Golf; as a result, this saloon is as independent as an Eos or a Tiguan.
