Report: 2011 Volkswagen Jetta starting under $15k

by Sam Abuelsamid (RSS feed) on Jun 1st 2010 at 4:27PM

According to a well-placed source at VWVortex, Volkswagen is set to release official photos of the new 2011 Jetta in about two weeks' time, and while the new compact sedan won't go on sale until sometime this fall, we'll be learning all about the new model over the course of the next month.

While the timing of the Jetta's release isn't a huge surprise (particularly considering the recent rash of spy shots), the real shocker could be the price. For the 2010 model year the cheapest Jetta will set you back $17,735, but word has it that the new model will start at just $14,950.

Volkswagen officials have long lamented how the dollar-to-euro exchange rate affects pricing of its wares, and recently, VW has been working to source more components and systems from dollar-zone suppliers. Hopefully, the drastically reduced price won't come at the expense of de-contenting and cheapening the interior of the new model. High-quality interiors have long been one of the hallmarks of VW products, so it's doubtful that V-Dub would go down market at the same time that Ford and GM are bringing serious competitive products to the segment. Expect more details to follow soon.

America is built to the lowest bidder, and VW knows it. Which is why they will be building the Jetta to the lowest bidder standards...one would think that after building half-witted Jetta's in pee-ayy and being almost out of the US market in 1992...they learn things about as well as the people in Washington or the people that run our (FAILed) banking system.

Maybe it is really time for our race to re evolve from a lower life form...whatever comes up from the gene pool can't be any dumber than what's on the planet now.

End of rant.

Funny. I never thought VW had 'standards' to speak of in the first place.

Yet, people will still buy it for it's 'German Engineering.'
