The North American market is one of, if not the largest markets for car companies like Volkswagen. Cars like the Jetta, for instance, have been selling in large quantities here since its debut in 1979. And now, the erstwhile model enters its seventh generation, fittingly makng its entrance at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
One look at the new sedan and you’ll immediately notice just how swoopy the lines are. The roof is now more sloping, with cues taken from the stylish Arteon that was launched recently. There are lots of upscale touches, including stuff like LED headlamps, that give the car a more premium vibe.
Now longer, wider, and taller with shorter overhangs, the added girth translates to a more spacious interior. The roomier quarters are paired with a cabin that is decidedly more high tech in both feel and execution.
