2011 VW Jetta Will Start at $16,000

2011 Volkswagen Jetta Bigger, and less expensive. Now that's some fancy engineering.

The new 2011 VW Jetta has been redesigned, both in price and platform, to make it cheaper and roomier - especially in the rear seat.

Starting at $16,000, it's less than the previous model... by $1,700.

The new price puts it in good company: Toyota's Corolla ($15,540 to start for 2010), Honda's Civic ($15,665 for 2010), and Chevrolet's all-new 2011 Cruze ($16,995 to start). Plus, the base Jetta offers features like AC, which you don't get till you move up to the competition's higher models.

And rumor has it an all-wheel drive option may be in the works.

Current engines (2.0-liter TSI and 2.0-liter TDI diesel) will continue in 2011, as are expected the power-packed 2.0-liter TSI turbo and 2.5-liter five-cylinder. A manual transmission will be standard and a six-speed automatic optional.

The Jetta also gets some stylish new aerodynamics, with better trunk proportions for a cleaner, more sophisticated look.

The 2011 Jetta goes on sale in October 2010.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
