According to China Car Times FAW VW will launch all new Jetta in 2008!
The old VW Jetta is the workhorse of the Chinese economy, without the Jetta there would be no new China, the two go hand in hand so well. Of course, the entire state of the blooming Chinese economy cannot be laid squarely on the VW Jettas shoulders, but China does spend billions of dollars per year on the Jetta, either for personal use, military use (low ranking officers have them for personal cars), police use, and most importantly, the taxi cab.
Most Jetta taxis in Qingdao are around 7 years old, which means they will all be scrapped later this year, and rightly so, most of the sills are rotten, the wings/fenders are disspearing thanks to the infamous tin worm that seems to eat up old VW Santanas and Jettas for lunch. But now, the Chinese people can rejoice because they’ve got an entirely new Jetta, all for themselves. This Jetta is only for the Chinese market (we believe) and is based off the Bora platform, its not quite a Sagitar, but its not quite the old Jetta. The Chinese have waited a long time for a new Jetta, and this one looks like its worth waiting for!
