Volkswagen is sweetening the deal for a new Jetta and Passat with an exclusive trade-in programme – the company is offering what it claims is an “irresistible price” for Volkswagen owners, and owners of cars from other brands will also be able to benefit from “attractive trade-in prices.” The programme runs until March 31.

To recap, the facelifted Jetta was launched in September, with new features such as bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, power-adjustable leather seats and a new 150 PS/250 Nm 1.4 litre single turbo engine to replace the old twincharged unit. It’s now available in Trendline, Comfortline and Highline, priced at RM109,578, RM118,578, and RM129,578 respectively (OTR without insurance).

Meanwhile, the new B8 Passat was launched in November – all-new from the ground up, it is lighter, more spacious and quicker than before. It is available with either a 180 PS/250 Nm 1.8 litre TSI mill on the Trendline and Comfortline models or a 220 PS/350 Nm 2.0 litre TSI unit on the top-spec Highline. Prices are RM160,937, RM180,937 and RM200,030 respectively.
