The folks over at Leftlanenews have managed to spot a slightly disguised version of the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta on testing duties somewhere in the United States. Evidently, the refrigerator slab like Jetta has got some more muscle mass at all the right places to end up looking elegantly understated as opposed to the previous version’s boring understatement.

Proofs are the new front end with sharpish headlights, some much needed creases in the otherwise slab like sides and the higher boot which makes the entire car get a pulled back, slightly sporty stance from a couple of angles. The ancient 5 potter petrol engine and the relatively newer 2.0 Liter CRDI diesel engine are expected to provide poke beneath the bonnet while the interiors too will see some more bells and tinkles and trim upgrades. In spite of all this emergency surgery by Volkswagen to keep the Jetta fresh and up to date, the 2011 Jetta still looks a good half a decade behind it’s contemporaries.

So, Volkswagen still seems to be relying on the Jetta’s teutonic build and bomb proof reliability to make the car buyers sign on the dotted lines. While they might succeed for a while, some radicality is certainly needed on the looks front as the competition seems to offer a killer combination of looks backed up with some mighty meat under the hood. Coming to the Indian context, we have no clue about whether Volkswagen India will bring in the 2011 Jetta to India. Given the current plain vanilla Indian Jetta, we strongly believe that it should and hope that it would, as something is better than nothing. Watch this space.
