New Jetta VS5 crossover turned out to be much cheaper than Volkswagen TharuJuly 12, 2019
Volkswagen has finally named the price lists and configurations of the budget SUV Jetta VS5.
This year, the German company Volkswagen introduced a new people’s brand – Jetta. Previously, this name was worn by sedans, but now it is the name of a new budget brand. This is a joint venture FAW-Volkswagen, which has already announced three car dealers. The first will be the Jetta VS5 – a compact crossover that will hit the market in September. Jetta VS5 is a converted and cheaper version of one of the best-selling Volkswagen – Tharu crossover.
The new SUV differs from the “donor” in a modified grille, new bumpers, original optics and a spectacular glazing line. Inside the car, we see inexpensive finishing materials – everything is practical and concise, multimedia with a large touchscreen, a stylish steering wheel with a horizontal bar, as well as air deflectors of a very unusual shape.
In the Jetta VS5 movement leads a 1.4-liter turbo engine with 150 horsepower, combined with the automatic gearbox from Aisin. Drive – no alternative front. The list of available options and equipment for the new SUV is quite wide: from the stabilization system and standard parking sensors to the air conditioner and eco-leather interior. The basic version of the Jetta VS5 is estimated at 128,900 yuan. For the Volkswagen Tharu, for comparison, in Chinese car dealership they are asking for significantly more – 165,800 yuan.
