Hard to believe, but Volkswagen will be releasing a 2011 Jetta with a sticker price of just $16,000. Today, in Times Square New York City, VW is debuting the most affordable Jetta ever built. It’s an entry level Jetta priced at just $16k, equipped with a slow but affordable 2.0 liter 115 horsepower engine.
No doubt, it’s stripped down, but hell, it’s brand new car for just $16,000! No radical styling, just clean fluent lines like found in other Jetta’s. Amazingly enough the little engine can eve bump the car from 0-60 in 8.2 seconds, so although nothing to brag about, the power is there when you need it.
Other standard features found in the $16,000 Jetta are:
- Air Conditioning
- Power Locks
- Power Windows
- CD Player
- Keyless Entry
Hopefully this bargain basement Jetta won’t come plagued with problems and be a well built machine. We don’t want this perceived value to turn into a black eye for Volkswagen.
