Crossover Jetta VS5 breaks sales recordsNovember 3, 2019
In the two months since the start of sales, the car was bought more than 17 thousand times. This result left far behind the main competitors.
In early autumn, Volkswagen introduced the budget crossover Jetta VS5 to the Chinese market. According to the results of the first two months of sales, the crossover showed excellent results – in China, 17.1 thousand people became owners of a new car. This result allows us to confidently outperform such well-known models as the Kia Sportage and Mitsubishi Outlander. The high level of sales is largely due to the rather budget price – the basic equipment of the car costs 84,800 yuan, and the maximum version will cost 112,800 yuan.
At the same time, customers trust the reliability and brand name – although Jetta six months ago turned into an independent brand, it is still related to the Volkswagen brand.
The length of the Jetta VS5 is 4,419 mm, the width is 1,841 mm, and the height is 1,616 mm. The distance between the axles is 2 630 mm. The “donor” for the car was the Volkswagen Tharu model. However, in the Jetta VS5 there are many elements of the original design – new bumpers, a modified radiator grille, a more textured body and stylish optics. As a power unit, a 1.4-liter turbo engine with a return of 150 hp is used, which works in tandem with an automatic transmission of 6 steps. All-wheel drive is not even an option.
Recall that a few days ago Hyundai announced the start of sales of the updated ix35 crossover. The price of new items starts at 109,800 yuan
