After taking on the Chinese auto market with its models, the German based automaker Volkswagen has decided to launch three of its models in Malaysia, in the form of Jetta, Passat and Cross Touran, providing class leading products for the local auto market.
Volkswagen says that the Passat launched in Malaysia is powered by the 1.8 liter turbocharged engine and has a peak torque of 250 Nm which is available ever since 1.500 rpm, while the Jetta has just 10 Nm less than its bigger brother available from the same 1.500 rpm and up to 4.500 rpm.
The VW Jetta has been “awarded” with a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and comes in standard with electronic differential lock, six airbags and a traction control system, still having enough space in the boot for that pedestrian which will eventually get hit by the German vehicle: 510 liters.
Just like its smaller brother, the VW Passat has also been awarded with the Euro NCAP five-star rating and the automaker says that the Malaysian version comes with a rest-assist drowsiness detection system which alerts the driver.
Volkswagen didn’t officially announced the prices for the three models which were recently launched in Malaysia but presenting the Asian market with the Jetta, Passat and Cross Touran is part of the German automaker’s plan to become the world’s biggest car manufacturer.
