2021 Volkswagen Jetta Trim Levels w/ Configurations & Comparisons

Contents of the material


The Jetta’s main competitors include the following models:

    Ford Focus; Peugeot 408; Citroen C4 sedan; Toyota Corolla; Skoda Octavia.

Geely Emgrand GT can be a serious competitor to the German model.


At the front of the car there is a 6-sided radiator grille with horizontal chrome strips, partially occupying the upper part of the bumper. Slim headlights highlight the dynamic look, complemented by a pronounced line on the side of the doors. The rear lighting is divided into asymmetrical sections located on the fender and trunk lid. The lower part of the bumper has a chrome trim that imitates the exhaust pipes of sports cars.


The foam-topped instrument panel has a cut-out outline and a center section that faces slightly towards the driver. The multimedia display is located above the ventilation ducts. The decoration is made of plastic coverings with a coating that imitates shiny metal. Between the front seats there is a traditional console with control buttons, cup holders and an armrest. The rear row of seats with folding backrests is equipped with a central armrest with slots for drinking glasses.

Maintenance costs

Despite the fact that in this case we are talking about a new version of the Jetta, the maintenance costs for this model do not differ from those incurred by the owners of the previous modification of the sedan. Both engines, as practice shows, do not require major repairs for at least 250 thousand kilometers. Although breakdowns in the turbine may occur earlier. Eliminating these defects will cost approximately 70-80 thousand rubles. The advantage of the new version of the Jetta is that the manufacturer abandoned the problematic robotic gearbox. Automatic and manual transmissions last much longer and are cheaper to maintain.

Stabilizer struts and bushings fail faster than other suspension parts. In the Jetta, these components need to be changed approximately every 30-40 thousand kilometers, which will cost 1-2 thousand rubles. The remaining suspension parts have to be repaired no earlier than after 70-80 thousand kilometers.
