VW Jetta Sport Edition 17

After getting wind of the Volkswagen Jetta Limited Edition’s presence in showrooms, we headed to Volkswagen Rawang for a closer look at the yet-to-be-launched Jetta LE, which some dealers are referring to as the “Sport Edition”. Already teased by VGM, it will be officially revealed in early May, which is of course just around the corner.

Few will be confusing the Jetta Limited Edition with the standard CKD car, for it appears significantly sportier with the addition of a five-piece original Volkswagen Zubehör bodykit, which consists of a front under spoiler; side skirts; rear under spoiler and boot lip spoiler.

Nice kit, but it wouldn’t work without the LE’s 17-inch “Silex” five twin-spoke alloys, which are wrapped with locally-made 225/45 Goodyear Assurance TripleMax tyres. It’s a one-inch upsize from the regular Jetta’s 16-inch rims with high profile 205/55 tyres. Ecotint window film completes the package, although we’ve also seen some ads touting Llumar tint.

We understand that the LE will also come with a Blaupunkt Philadelphia 835 touchscreen head unit with navigation, which has yet to be fitted to this locked demo car.

Word is that the current RM134,888 price will remain – which effectively means that all the above goodies are yours for “free” – with a cheaper “Club Edition” (with navi and tint, without bodykit and rims) joining the range. We’ll see, but for now, check out the first live gallery of the Jetta Limited Edition below.
