Did you read our comprehensive review of Jetta 147TSI and now want more info? Take a closer look under, over, in and out of the Mark V VW Jetta.
We presume the chrome highlights on the side windows and grille are meant to signify that sedans are classier than their hatch siblings.
The headlights feature tiny VW emblems on the element that hides the bulb.
Did you notice that it's got twin tail-pipes? Didn't think so.
The 147TSI comes standard with 17-inch alloys. One of three 18-inch alloy wheel choices came fitted to our car.
That grille's so shiny you could do your hair or make-up in it.
The 147TSI's 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine produces 147kW of power (hence the 147TSI branding) and 280Nm of torque.
The speedometer with its markings every 5km/h between zero and 60km/h, and markings per 10km/h beyond that, add to the impression of formidable speed and acceleration.
The 147TSI and 125TDI's sports seats provide a good amount of grip when you're flinging the Jetta around. The optional leather covering feels rather nice too, but it's disappointing that the accountants pinched a few euros by using the standard cloth covering for the side closest to the centre tunnel.
A slide-out drawer is hidden below both the driver and front passenger's seat. The driver's side unit disappears when you pony up the dollars for the electric driver's seat though.
Rear-seat accommodation is decent, but not spectacular.
With a volume of over 500 litres the boot is not only long and deep, but could also house a small tribe of Neanderthals.
A neat little tab pops up whenever the seat back isn't fully latched.
The rear seats split-fold, but don't lie completely flat.
The fold-down rear-seat arm rest...
...hides a ski port.
A fold down luggage hook keeps your groceries safe and secure for their trip home.
A temporary spare wheel lives underneath the boot floor.
Rear-seat passengers enjoy their own set of air vents, as well as a set of adjustable cup holders.
A sliding cover hides storage cubby cum cup holders in the centre console. The divider for which...
...doubles up as a bottle opener.
Flick the car into reverse, or press the parking sensor button, and potential objects are shown on the entertainment display.
The indicator and high-beam stalk also manipulates the cruise control system, with the set speed appearing in the LCD screen between the speedo and tacho.
Heated front seats are part of the package if you opt for leather seats.
Heated electric wing mirrors are standard.
The rear-view mirror automatically dims itself when faced with blinding lights — not available on the 77TDI.
Electric adjustment for the driver's seat is part of the leather-seating package.
Unless you tick the box marked flappy paddles, the stubby gear lever is the only way to manually change gears in double-clutch-equipped vehicles.
The multifunction display in between the speedometer and tachometer (seen in the background) is manipulated by a set of controls on the right steering wheel spoke.
To get USB and iPod connectivity you'll have to pay extra for the sound system option with Volkswagen's media device interface. A VW-specific iPod cable will set you back a few extra dollars too.
With the MDI installed, USB flash drives can provide plenty of hours of music entertainment.
Despite the presence of a Traffic button, traffic information isn't available in Australia.
The media screen allows you to easily switch between different tracks, albums, folder and music storage types.
Upcoming turns can be viewed in a pop-up window.
The LCD display or multifunction display (MFD) in the instrument panel can be used to show the next turn instructions. It certainly seems quicker and safer to quickly glance at the MFD than to look across to the RNS510's big 6.5-inch screen.
A range of settings, from light delays to displayed data, can be configured via the MFD.
Want fuel consumption, temperature info and other stats? The MFD's got it.
Track or station info can be shown on the MFD, saving drivers from having to look at the stereo's more distant screen.
No destination entered? Fine, the MFD will happily show you a compass reading instead.
