2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen Jetta

In 2010 took a big gamble.  They a new version of the Jetta designed to head to head with the Corolla.  The new Jetta has a lower a 4-cylinder engine for the least Jetta S, and more equipment.

  However, so far it doesn’t the gamble is paying off.  the worldwide sales volume for VW is the Jetta is lagging behind in the After a strong start in with the 2011 model grew by 39% in Oct. 2011) sales grew by only 3.9 in October of 2012.  Still, the is by far VW s bestselling model with 13,000 vehicles sold in 2012.

  The bad news for Volkswagen Toyota Corolla is still the Jetta, with close to Corollas sold this past

The Jetta is currently available in styles; plus a sixth style scheduled to be released in the fall/early winter.  The cheapest the Jetta S starting at $16,675.  It is equipped with air-conditioning windows but the low price shows its relatively anemic 4-cylinder and an interior where oceans of black plastic reign

The Jetta SE is a much better car the Jetta S.  Better acceleration, handling, better looking interior and exterior), and with comfortable seats.  It is no surprise the SE is the best selling version of the The 2.5 liter 5-cylinder engine 170 horsepower for much stronger plus the “leatherette” (vinyl) offer a more comfortable and seating surface than the seats of the S.  The SE interior even has chrome to break up the monotony of the plastic.

  Starting at $18,995 the Jetta SE is $2,300 more expensive the S, but it is worth it.

More good with the SE is you can do away with the seats and a some of the black by choosing beige leatherette.  Not does the appearance of the car improve, but the of heat absorbing black and plastic will help the Jetta cooler on a hot summer The wheels on the SE are upgraded from to alloy providing better in addition to the improved appearance.

The SEL adds 17” alloy wheels, button start, and a 6-way driver’s seat; it has a base of $22,895 with a manual By the time you add a few options like a navigation system and automatic the SEL is over $25,000.  Add the $795 charge and you’ve got a very but fairly expensive car.

The expensive Jetta is the GLI starting at It is the sportiest of the Jettas, adding a turbo charged gas engine, 17 wheels and a sportier grill.  you ve equipped it with the DSG dual-clutch transmission you ve got an expensive, but very fun to 4-door sedan.

The last and currently greenest of the is the TDI – essentially a Jetta SE with a Diesel engine.  The big advantage of the TDI is efficiency.  The miles per gallon from 24/34 mpg (city/highway) to mpg with a not unreasonable price to $22,990.

  In addition to the better with the TDI engine, in most diesel fuel costs per gallon than Regular.  It be noted that the new diesel are not like the ones cars using when I was a kid.  diesels are not the smelly, noisy that were almost to start in the winter, they are easy to start and less than some gas engines.

  Volkswagen is planning to release a version of the Jetta, unfortunately information is not yet available.  Volkswagen the Jetta Hybrid will combined fuel economy 45 mpg.

For the test drive I a Jetta SE.  It is the Jetta people are purchasing.  I’ve always the way Volkswagens handle and the new Jetta is no You really feel in control of the when you are behind the wheel and the 5-cylinder engine the acceleration is improved over the Jetta S.  The is a little firm, like European cars, but it isn’t Unlike some cars, for example, the ride is firm being punishing – you don’t every pebble in the road.

  The is surprisingly quiet for a VW and as always VWs, the seats are comfortable and contoured, holding the driver and firmly in place.  Braking was and didn’t require excessive nor was it “grabby” like in some

In addition to being fun to drive, the is a very safe car.  The gives it either 4 or 5 stars in all of its test ratings.  The overall impact rating is four the overall side impact is 5 stars.

  The Jetta’s safety are virtually identical to those of the Corolla but there was one test the Corolla only got three the side pole impact.

the Jetta is a nice car, not a improvement over the previous but still an improvement.  I don’t if it offers as much value as a when you figure in things reliability and miles per gallon but it is a lot fun to drive.  Also, there is the option which the Corolla offer.

  If gas prices continue to rise and fuel is sold at gas stations to you, the Jetta TDI is an alternative considering.  Other cars in the class as the Jetta are the Ford and the Honda Civic; both are alternatives to the Jetta.

If you have any about the Jetta, feel to leave a reply.  I try to answer within 36-hours, often
