Does the clutch bite point vary between cars?

When testing a demo 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, low mileage, I found the clutch bite point to be high compared to my Opel Astra's. Is this normal for Volkswagen cars?

Hi F D,

In my experience the clutch bite point can vary between different examples of the same car so I wouldn't read anything into that, especially as your own car will change slowly over time as the friction disc of the clutch pack wears.
