Volkswagen Jetta II: History and Technology

The second generation of the Volkswagen Jetta (also known as Jetta II) was produced from 1984 to 1992. The Jetta was introduced as the successor to the popular first Jetta and was part of a broad model range by the German automaker Volkswagen. The Jetta, a compact family car, was designed to bridge the gap between the Golf and Volkswagen's larger sedans. The model was offered as both a four-door sedan and a two-door version. The second generation is known for its robust design and technological improvements over its predecessor. The designer of the Jetta II was Giorgetto Giugiaro, a renowned car designer who created numerous iconic vehicles.
