The North American division of Volkswagen announced today it has presented the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County with two specially prepared Jetta SportWagen TDI vehicles to each law enforcement department in order to be used to keep residents safe.

"This generous gift is much appreciated and will be a welcomed addition to our expanding Chattanooga Police Department," said Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield. "We applaud Volkswagen for their continued investment in our community."

Engineers and designers revised the white Jetta SportWagen vehicles to incorporate features that would help the police. The sport styling body package includes a rear spoiler and chrome exhaust tips.

Under the hood, the vehicle is powered by a 2.0-liter TDI clean diesel four-cylinder engine, capable of achieving 320 Nm of torque through its turbo diesel engine and up to 42 mpg (5.6 l/100km) on the highway.

The Jetta SportWagens also feature 225/40 18-inch Goodyear Eagle GT All Season tires mounted over Volkswagen's own 18-inch Goal wheel package.

Inside, the vehicles feature everything needed for Community Policing activities. FMS Automotive technicians have created custom-built enclosures and mounts, to hold all the communications and emergency lighting gear in place.

"Volkswagen is thrilled to be able to provide technologically advanced Jetta SportWagen vehicles to both the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County police departments to help keep the area safe while driving in a reliable, versatile and stylish vehicle," said Frank Fischer, Chairman and CEO of Volkwagen's Chattanooga Operations. "Volkswagen is committed to continue building a longstanding relationship with the Chattanooga community and we know these vehicles will provide the officers of this area with the kind of performance they need to get the job done."
