Volkswagen Jetta is matte orange, matte purple, matte yellow, and matte green in China

Volkswagen Jetta is matte orange, matte purple, matte yellow, and matte green in China

A very colorful Volkswagen Jetta, seen in central Beijing by reader Jacco B., thank you for the picture! The jolly Jetta was wrapped in a surprising combination of  matte orange, matte purple, matte yellow, and matte green, and is further sexed up by racy tires with sporty double-four spoke alloys, fake air boxes on the bonnet, red tinted headlights, black windows, and a huge green wing on the back. A true work of art this Jetta is!

The Volkswagen Jetta MK2 was made in China from 1991 until March this year when it was finally replaced by the all-new Jetta. The MK2 was an extremely popular car, loved for its fault-free character and pure basic transport functionality. It also was, and likely will be for a long time to come, very popular to make-more-pretty.

Taxi driver takes it Easy in China

A taxi driver takes a nap in his Volkswagen Jetta taxi on a quiet lane in Beijing around lunchtime, seen not far from the CarNewsChina.com office towers in the capital. The driver’s yellow shirt hangs neatly on the a hook inside the vehicle. Taxi drivers in Beijing are required to wear a yellow shirt since the 2008 Olympic Games. Failing to wear their yellow shirt can result in heavy fines, but the rules don’t say anything about napping time.

The very first spy shots of a very cheap new Volkswagen Jetta testing in China. The new Volkswagen Jetta was launched on the Chinese car market in March, priced from 82.800 to 119.300 yuan. At the time of launch we were surprised about the rather high price, where 70.000 yuan was expected for the cheapest variant. It now seems Volkswagen had a cheapo ready anyway, and it loox the deal…

New Volkswagen Jetta is collecting Dust in China

This is the very first new Volkswagen Jetta I met in person in China, parked behind the new and still secret Volkswagen Sagitar GLI in central Beijing. The Jetta was extremely dusty, as if it drove all the way from the factory in Changchun to the capital, in a sand storm. I passed by the same place again this morning and both cars were still there, unattended and looking kinda sad…

Getting Green with a Lawn on top of your Car in China

The good owner of a Volkswagen Jetta decided to get a bit green, for the penguins and such and such. He constructed a nice little lawn and fitted it all on the roof of his vehicle. This now, won’t help much. The lawn ads weight and the construction causes extra drag, so in the end the vehicle will use much more fuel.
