Aug 16, 2016 : German carmaker Volkswagen has decided not to launch the seventh-generation Jetta in India. VW will however continue to produce the current model of the Jetta till the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kits run out of stock, possibly by the end of 2017. The current Jetta is costlier than the Toyota Corolla Altis and the Skoda Octavia, both of which have received a much better response from the Indian market. In fiscal year 2015-16, the Jetta clocked 1,940 units whereas its sibling brand Skoda sold 2,675 units of the Octavia and the Japanese counterpart Toyota sold 6,506 units of the Corolla Altis. The Jetta currently sells in double digits a month and the seventh-generation model with its latest tech would likely become even more expensive than the current offering, making it difficult for the car to make a case for itself in India

The new Volkswagen Jetta facelift is an engaging car to drive thanks to the powerful engine and gearbox combination. However, when compared to competition, it misses out on some gadgets.
