A VW Question

Walking to the train station this morning, from a distance I saw what I thought was just another Jetta, but as I got closer, I noticed that it was a Bora VR6, which I thought was the European version of the Jetta. It must have been an import. Is the Bora available in the U.S.? And do the differences between these 2 cars just lie in the name, or are other systems different?

Thanks,
-Tom

I checked out VW's French website and they listed these models.

Lupo
Polo
Beetle
Golf
Bora
Passat

In Europe the Jetta is indeed the Bora.

Here are some facts on Bora and Jetta. Also here is a link to check some pics out- http://www.autonews.ru/catalog/photo.shtml?/catalog/10041/10533_pic6.shtml

VW Bora VR6 2.8 around 204/hp

VW Jetta VR6 2.8 around 174/hp

If I had a choise I'd take Bora.:D

I don't know if its available in US

But the Jetta has been around in Europe a few years ago as well. Today it's the Bora.

The European cars seem to be getting the higher output VR6... which should be coming to the US for the 2003 model year. It is quite funny really, the 1.8T now makes 170 (180 on the GTI) whereas the VR6 makes 172. I think the new VR6 is getting a twin cam setup and 24 valves. The current engine is a SOHC 12 valve setup surprisingly (though I could be wrong on the 12 valve part.)

Thanks guys. BTW, it had CA plates on with no regestration stickers on the windshield.

I'm sure there's a Tora Bora joke in there somewhere. Acquiring a Jetta or Golf is my number one priority for 2002.
