Volkswagen Review

Car tested: 2012 Jetta 1.4 TSI Petrol (Comfortline)

OTR Mumbai: Rs. 17,75,138/- (est.)

It may foolish to launch the petrol of the Volkswagen Jetta at a time fuel prices are hitting the but the German automaker seems to otherwise. The 1.4 TSI (Turbocharged Staratified engine has been a part of VW s portfolio since a few years This engine has reduced losses, optimized camshafts, new ports and new high-pressure injector which not only provide performance but also aids in fuel efficiency and reduced

This 1.4-litre mill may not attractive on paper, especially the competition consists of larger units, but does the 1.4 TSI engine cut the that s exactly what we are to find out!

Volkswagen has using this engine in the market and has just plonked engine into the Indian On the exterior, the TSI badge on the rear differentiates it from its diesel This variant also a set of 5-spoke alloy wheels. The Jetta TSI will only be in the Comfortline and Trendline trim.

Naturally this petrol will be less loaded its diesel sibling and does not get seats, automatic climate Bluetooth etc. It also a lower spec audio Safety is priority and the Jetta gets 6-airbags, ABS and EBD.

is not the first time TSI technology has used in India and the Jetta s the Skoda Laura sports the 1.8 engine which is known for its and smoothness. The Jetta s 1.4 TSI engine 120 BHP of peak power at 5000 RPM and a 200 Nm of torque between 1500 RPM. Refinement is brilliant and is absolutely no noise or vibration. while hitting the rev limiter, the note is  smooth.

Power delivery is linear only a slight hint of till about 1500 RPM which  the Jetta decent performance.

You may not get the same kick the engines provide but it is still enough to move around authority. Low end torque is average but engine comes strong in the and high end of the revmeter. It red-lines at RPM and pulls cleanly in the high end of the rev The sixth gear may not be too useful in the but comes handy on the highways.

on the highways may need you to go down a few but its not much of a problem.

Mated to this gearbox is a manual transmission. The gearshifts are and the clutch is reasonably light. ratios are on the taller side but the still hits 55 km/h in gear and 102 km/h in second

It does a 0 100 km/h run in 10.98 which is only 2 seconds than the 1.8-litre Laura It is surprising that a 1.4-litre performs reasonably well for a car of size and weight. In our short in the car we did not get time to calculate its real fuel efficiency but we expect to be the most fuel efficient car in its class. We have earlier that the Jetta is one hell of a and these characteristics and driving are passed on this version This TSI version is lighter the TDI (by around 42 kgs) and this weight difference favors handling characteristics.

Volkswagen is not offering an automatic for this car, atleast not

So does the Jetta TSI come as a strong contender in the segment? It does. The Government is planning an excise duty on diesel if this happens, petrol will be back in business.

if this additional excise on diesel cars is dropped, the TSI will still be the most efficient car in its segment and will to those who want a refined sedan. Though prices not been announced yet, we can the prices to start Rs 2 lakhs than those of the corresponding version.
