Teased some time ago and captured in a pre-launch gallery post, the Volkswagen Jetta Limited Edition has finally been unveiled. The Jetta LE is available in two flavours, the Jetta Sport Edition and Jetta Club Edition – both variants are limited to 500 units. First off, the Jetta Sport Edition you see here is, in essence, a spruced-up version of the CKD Jetta 1.4 TSI launched back in 2014.

Exterior goodies found on the Jetta Sport Edition over the standard car include a five-piece Volkswagen Zubehör bodykit, comprised of a front chin spoiler, side skirts, a subtle rear lip spoiler and a sportier, diffuser-like rear bumper. In profile, the Jetta Sport Edition now sports 17-inch “Silex” twin five-spoke alloy wheels, shod with 225/45 Goodyear Assurance TripleMax tyres – an inch larger than the 16-inchers found on the regular Jetta.

Elsewhere, the Jetta Sport Edition is equipped with Llumar window film. On the inside, matters remain status quo with the exception of a new Blaupunkt Philadelphia 835 seven-inch touchscreen head unit mounted on the centre console – said system includes GPS navigation capabilities.

Under the bonnet, the Jetta Sport Edition soldiers on with the same twin-charged (turbo/supercharged) 1.4 litre TSI four-cylinder engine. Said mill produces a total power output of 158 hp at 5,800 rpm and 240 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. Paired to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox, the C-segment contender sprints from 0-100 km/h in 8.3 seconds before hitting a top whack of 221 km/h.

Moving on to the Jetta Club Edition (not pictured at launch, unfortunately), said variant forgoes the 17-inch wheels and bodykit but carries over the aforementioned window film treatment and Blaunpunkt touchscreen head unit. As surmised, the Jetta Club features the same mechanical innards as the regular Jetta 1.4 TSI.

In terms of safety kit, both variants present the same amount of features as that of the Jetta 1.4 TSI. That equates to a total of six airbags, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, ESP, hill-hold control and Isofix child seat anchors on the rear seats. Colour schemes include Candy White, Reflex Silver, Platinum Grey and Deep Black.

Prices for the Volkswagen Jetta Sport Edition begin at RM132,888 with GST excluding on-the-road costs – which is a full RM2,000 cheaper than the regular Jetta 1.4 TSI. On the other hand, the Jetta Club Edition allows for a more affordable point of entry into the Jetta ownership circle with a price tag of RM122,888 inclusive of GST sans on-the-road costs.
