Top Gear Philippines


May 2017 will be a good month for VW fans. In an effort to double its record-breaking 2016 sales, Volkswagen Philippines is introducing two new cars this month: the Golf GTS and the new Jetta

The Golf GTS is the wagon version of the iconic hatchback, and offers 350L more cargo space than the original when the rear seats are folded. It will come in two variants, Business Edition and Business Edition+. Both are powered by a 2.0-liter TDI that generates 148hp and 340Nm, paired to a six-speed DSG transmission. The Busines Edition rolls out at P1.35 million, while the Business Edition+ is set at P1.4 million.

The new Jetta, meanwhile, will come with a sunroof as standard. The top two variants get Bi-Xenon headlights, adaptive front lighting, and LED daytime running lights. The top-of-the-line Business Edition+ gets safety additions like adaptive cruise control, blind spot alert with lane assist, and front assist with forward collision warning. 

The top three variants of the Jetta will get a Fender sound system, dual-zone A/C, rain sensors, and power driver's seats with lumbar adjustment. Standard for all variants are leather seats, push-button start, and a 5.8in touchscreen display. Like the Golf GTS, the new Jetta is also powered by a 2.0-liter TDI.

The Jetta will come in the following colors: Platinum Gray, Black, Cardinal Red Metallic, Toffee Brown, Reflex Silver, Blue Silk, Pure White, and Moon Rock Silver. All variants are available with a black interior, while the beige interior is also available for the top three. Prices stand at P1.1 million for the Comfortline, P1.2 million for the Highline, P1.25 million for the Business Edition, and P1.3 million for the Business Edition+.

Volkswagen dealerships are currently accepting reservations for the Golf GTS and Jetta, with deliveries expected by the end of the month. Who's signing up?
