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.
