After last month's unveiling in New York, Volkswagen has this week revealed further details and images for its upcoming 2011 Jetta, set to go on sale in the US in October. Global launch dates for the German-designed, Mexican-built Jetta have yet to be announced.

Designed with the space-hungry US market in mind, the new Jetta leaves its old Golf-based underpinnings behind, switching to a unique platform 90mm longer than its predecessor and offering a 65mm increase in rear legroom.

In all, the the new Jetta measures 4640mm long, 1450mm tall and 1780mm wide. Along with increased overall length, Volkswagen's new small sedan rides on a wheelbase 70mm longer than before.

Inside, the new Jetta's interior and dash styling is in-line with Volkswagen's current range and, while not entirely new, would appear stylish and well laid-out.

Storage capacity has not been revealed, although Volkswagen has confirmed that the rear luggage compartment will benefit from 40/60 split-folding rear seats.

In Europe, the new Jetta will be offered with an expansive engine line-up (0-100km/h times and combined-cycle fuel consumption are indicated after each engine in brackets).

Among the petrol engines will be a 77kW 1.2 litre TSI (10.9 seconds, 5.3 l/100km), 90kW 1.4 litre TSI (9.9, 6.2), 118kW 1.4 litre TSI (8.3, 6.3) and a 147kW 2.0 litre TSI (7.5, 6.9).

Diesel options will be limited to two engines, including a 77kW 1.6 litre TDI (11.7, 4.5) and a 103kW 2.0 litre TDI (9.5, 4.8).

All models except for the 1.2 litre TSI will be available with Volkswagen's seven-speed DSG automatic transmission.

Volkswagen's Ultra-efficient BlueMotion technology will also be offered with the 1.2 TSI and 1.6 TDI engine. Availability of the Bluemotion models in the Australian market will depend on VW making its DSG transmissions available with them.

In the US, three petrol engines will be offered, including an 85kW 2.0 litre four-cylinder, a 125kW 2.5 litre inline five-cylinder and a 150kW 2.0 litre turbo-charged four-cylinder. On the diesel front, US buyers will have just the one choice, a 105kW 2.0 litre turbo-diesel.

Local pricing and availability has yet to be revealed, but Volkswagen Australia has confirmed to TMR that the new Jetta will arrive in Australia sometime in 2011.
