Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid and R versions coming in 2012

The new generation Jetta was revealed only two days ago and rumors about future versions are already starting to appear on the internet. The first of the rumors involves a hybrid drivetrain for the new Jetta. It will be unveiled in 2012, but there still isn’t any specific information on the powertrain.

The next rumor circulating is that it might be seeing a higher performance version. Like with the Scirocco and the new Golf, the Jetta will also be offered in an R version. For this version we expect the same 2.0 Liter turbocharged four cylinder engine that delivers 270 HP at 6,000 RPM as in the Golf R . The standard R features a more aggressive front bumper complete with large air intakes, standard LED strips, a new designed R logo, Bi-Xenon headlights, and mirror housings painted in a high gloss black paint.

For the US market, the new Jetta will be offered with S, SE, SEL and TDI trim levels with four engines. The engine line-up includes the 2.0, 2.5 R5, and as of 2011, the 2.0 TSI. The 2.0-liter turbodiesel direct injection (TDI) Clean Diesel engine will also be available. This engine delivers 236 lbs-ft. of torque and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 8.7 seconds.

for me it looks like a longer and larger version of volkswagen scirocco.

for sure it will increase more fuel efficiency with a hybrid engine.

It looks like there is a reflection from the curb that looks like a body side strip. From comparison with the NCC, it looks like they’ve taped out the bright trim around the windows and extended it along the bottom. Too bad there aren’t pics from other angles or of the interior.

I think that will be successful, because both of them steeped in racing history.

his car is fairly boring, and the interior.... Did they even change anything? It looks almost the same as the current gen.
