Volkswagen Bora Overview

The Volkswagen Bora is classed as a small family car and was produced by the German automobile company, The Volkswagen Group. The Bora is another name for the VW Jetta and was only known as the Bora for the fourth and fifth generations of the Jetta. Depending on the market, would determine the exact name it was marketed under. The Bora is the next size up from the Golf, and VW wanted to have a saloon car in the small family car class. This car is basically a Golf with a trunk, but with a few more alterations. These cars are well built and good to drive but are not the most stylish cars. They have some good engines and perform well, as they are much the same as the Golf. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Bora?
