2008 City Jetta at the Georgian College Autoshow

23 posts in this topic

The "Canada-only" VW City Jetta gets a mild facelift for 2008.

Its basicaly the old MKIV Jetta, with new tailights and headlights.

This is the same car currently sold in Mexico.

At first, Kris and I didn't know what we were looking at. The front looks like the previous Passat.

It looked much better before. The new front and rear ends don't go well with the body. The new steering wheel is an improvement though.

Good point Dodgefan :P Loki is claiming that the centrestack blows, but doesn't the GM Cobalt/G5 have an almost identical design? Why isn't he dissing the GM interior design? It's a double standard I assume on this board :P

They both blow, but the Cobalt was cheaper.

Almost $23k and 115 hp? The Optra is $3k less and has more horsepower! :stupid:

The Optra is a piece of $h!, it's essentially a re-badged Nubira, and I worked at a Daewoo warranty dealership in Mississauga and those things came in all the time with blown transmissions, blown headgaskets, and snapped timing belts with bent valves because the pully was designed incorrectly. I understand the Jettas had their share of electrical problems when they first came out, but come on? Where the hell did you get 23K???? The fully opted out one is that much.

Thank you :) At least we're reasonable.

They both blow, but at least the vents at the top of the Cobalt stack line up with the rest of the stack.

So the City Jetta is essentially the previous generation Jetta with the previous generation Passat front end and updated circular taillights that fit in with VW's current design language? So Volkswagen still thinks it will actually take over Toyota in eight years doing this? I don't get it! :banghead:

Well it's working, the City Jetta was released last year, and it sold very well. I got to sit in a nice red one with all the options except for automatic, and the total price was a little under 21k. That's pretty good for a car that still feels fresh, even since the redesign. It feels more expenseve than it's competition on the interior, especially when they updated the seat fabric, and now you get a 6 speed tipronic automatic. 8) They won't beat Toyota, unless if they introduce some SKoda or Seat models worldwide, but even then, they will probably come in third or second.

This is the exact same refresh as the Chinese Bora Sedan, it appeared in 2006, I think. The Golf is the Bora HS.

I'm just surprised we are actually getting it here, it's Chinese designed.

Looks better than the ugly one they sold here until 04 or 05.
