The newly released 2015 Volkswagen Jetta will be even cheaper than originally thought, starting from $21,990 driveaway as part of a special introductory offer.
The best savings apply to the entry-level Jetta 118TSI Trendline variants. The six-speed manual gets the eye-grabbing $21,990 driveaway sticker, which is down on its regular price of $22,790 before on-road costs – a price that’s already $2200 cheaper than the pre-facelifted model.
The seven-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic 118TSI Trendline gets a $24,490 driveaway price tag as part of the deal, likewise undercutting the car’s regular $25,290 before on-road costs price.
Other introductory driveaway prices include the 118TSI Comfortline for $29,990 (usually $29,990 plus on-roads), 118TSI Highline for $34,490 (usually $33,990 plus on-roads), 103TDI Highline for $36,990 (usually $36,490 plus on-roads), and the 155TSI Highline Sport for $39,990 (usually $39,990 plus on-roads).
Volkswagen says the prices apply to private buyers of new Jetta vehicles sold by March 31 and delivered by April 30, 2015.
The Trendline is modestly specced, with equipment highlights including 16-inch alloy wheels, driver attention detection system, touchscreen display screen, and an eight-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
The Comfortline adds a host of features headlined by 17-inch alloy wheels, auto headlights and wipers, power-folding and auto-dipping side mirrors with puddle lamps, front and rear parking sensors and a reverse-view camera, dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, voice recognition, DVD player, in-built media hard-drive and an SD card input.
The Highline gains features such as partial leather upholstery, heated and electric front sports seats, and a proximity key with push-button start, among others.
In addition to a larger 2.0-litre engine, the Highline Sport adds 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights and active cornering lamps, LED daytime running lights, tinted LED tail-lights, tinted windows, chrome exhaust tip, and steering wheel paddleshifters.
