Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has announced a low interest rate promotion for the Jetta Comfortline, with rates from as low as 0.88% per annum. The promotion is ongoing from now until December 31, 2017.

The 0.88% rate is only applicable to those who opt for a five-year hire purchase loan term, while it is 1.28% for a seven-year tenure, and 1.68% for a nine-year period. All purchases will also come with a five-year/75,000 km free maintenance package, on top of the standard five-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The Jetta Comfortline is currently priced at RM118,578 on-the-road without insurance, and comes with an additional RM10,000 savings. It is powered by a 1.4 TSI direct-injection four-cylinder engine that makes 150 PS and 250 Nm, with drive going to the front wheels via a seven-speed dry dual-clutch automatic.

Performance wise, the Jetta will sprint from a rest to 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds, and onwards to a top speed of 220 km/h. The car has a claimed fuel consumption of just 5.0 litres per 100 km (20.0 km/l), down from 6.0 l/100 km (16.7 km/l) for the previous model.

VPCM also revealed the current low interest rate promotions for the Vento and Passat will be in effect until the end of the year.
