Just confirmed by DRB-Hicom last week, the Volkswagen Jetta CKD has been spotted at JPJ Putrajaya by regular contributor Anol Alias. Unlike the last round of spyshots, the locally-assembled C-segment sedan is seen here completely uncovered, giving us a full view of both its exterior and interior.
First up, it looks identical to the fully-imported model from the outside. The 16-inch ‘Navarra’ wheels are the same as before, as are the badging and all-round light clusters. So no, the upcoming CKD model will not get Xenon headlamps and the accompanying LED daytime running lights that is available elsewhere.
Peeking through the windows reveals a new head unit. In place of the old model’s RCD 310 multimedia system is the newer RCD 320 unit – the same ones found in the CKD Polo Sedan and Hatchback models. Another change is the Golf Mk7-sourced three-knob aircon controls, which replace the older two-knob version used in the initial run of CBU units.
Also worth mentioning is the Hicom Automotive sticker on the windscreen, which confirms this car’s CKD origins. The cat is out of the bag, then. You’ll soon be able to buy this Volkswagen Jetta CKD in Malaysia. How soon and for how much? Your guess is as good as ours.
