|2013 Vw Jetta Owners Manual|
In order to prevent an outright revolt from brand name fans since its 2011 redesign, Volkswagen upgrades the Jetta cabin for 2013 to add features like a soft-touch dash and extra seat configurations for select trims, plus a few added features to existing option packages. VW also promises a hybrid for 2013, though very little of that beyond its 45 highway mpg will be understood until its launch at an as-yet undisclosed date. Aside from that every mechanical piece and body panel is exactly because it was for 2012, combined with same 5 trim levels, indicating Volkswagen is sticking to its cost-cutting guns despite driver desires for compelling design, more power out of the base engine and a return to the prior generation's multilink suspension system. Well, that's what loyal long-time motorists think, at least.
Volkswagen is on a mission to flood north markets that are american get a V-dub in as many driveways possible. To that final end, VW took on Toyota's cost-cutting philosophy and started pushing away cars by the hundreds, sometimes of debateable quality. The 2011 Jetta redesign is the proof in that pudding with a suspension that is less-refined base engine and cabin than previous generations—a move that ticked off brand fans, but newcomers to the German make don't appear to mind at all. The Jetta appears neck and neck because of the competition in its cost point for overall quality, so instead of getting a several-thousand-dollar discount off the quality brand name fans are used to, dedicated drivers are disappointed to locate no freebies or givens in this less-expensive version that is americanized. First-time motorists, on the other hand, couldn't be more elated.
Starting 2013 the 5-passenger midsize Jetta sedan continues in S, SE, SEL, TDI and GLI kinds. Every trim however the sunroof-less S editions now gets an adjustable front armrest standard. SE and TDI trims get a bit more chrome in the outside, metallic trim inside and now function power-reclining front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter. The SEL gets that soft-touch dash even minus the Premium options update for 2013, and in case you get the Navigation upgrade, a Fender Premium stereo includes it. The TDI with Premium and Navigation now gets a 6-way powered driver's seat and 17-inch alloy tires standard for 2013, an inch bigger than the final model. Last but most certainly not least, the GLI, the performance pedigree regarding the bunch, now gets launch control standard to ensure the transmission that is automated-manualn't make your tires spin too much, and getting the Navigation upgrade adds otherwise unavailable features like a backup camera and LED daytime running lights.
