After yesterday’s leaked info and photos of the all-new 2011 Jetta, we have still more info to bring you on the newest Volkswagen model ahead of its scheduled debut later today. The new Jetta is slated to receive a base price that sits around the $16,000 mark – notifeably less than the almost $18,000 base price of the current model.

With more dramatic styling, the new Jetta is no longer based on the Golf platform but gets its own underpinnings with the same width as the current model at 70.1-inches and the same height at 57-inches. What does change, however, is the car’s length at 182.7-inches (3.5-inches longer) with a longer wheelbase and 2.6-inches of additional rear seat legroom.

In total four engines will be offered on the 2011 Jetta, including a 2.0-liter GLI making around 200-hp and a 138-hp  2.0-liter TDI engine.

The 2011 Volkswagen Jetta is set to go on sale in October, with production beginning at VW’s Puebla, Mexico factory soon
