Getting to Know This Fast and Friendly VW Vehicle

The world of car-buying can be a bit overwhelming if you’ve never navigated it before. First of all, there’s the almost limitless selection of cars, trucks, and SUVs to choose from. How do you possibly narrow it down to one? There is also the issue of price, the warranty, and selecting the right trim level. If you’ve been searching terms like “new cars for sale” then you’ve probably already been shown a sea of cars but are no closer to finding the one that’s right for you.

Enter: the 2021 Volkswagen Jetta. Our perfect solution for first-time car buyers.

“What’s the VW Jetta All About?”

This is a question we get asked a lot by customers who happen to be touring the VW Clear Lake lot and notice the VW Jetta for sale. The Jetta turns a lot of heads because it’s sleek and modern without feeling ostentatious. Just looking at it brings a smile to peoples’ faces.

The starting MSRP for the 2021 VW Jetta clocks in at $18,995, making it one of the more price-conscious cars in the entire Volkswagen line-up. However, don’t let the low sticker price lead you to believe you’re getting a bare-bones car. The VW Jetta rocks a 1.4L Turbo engine with 147 horsepower under the hood and 184.4 lb-ft. of torque. Make no mistake, this unassuming compact packs a lot of power. It also packs a lot of space, seating five comfortably with 94.7 cubic ft. of interior volume.

Perhaps the thing that people love most about the 2021 VW Jetta is its ability to stretch the dollars spent at the pump. The Jetta is a dream car when it comes to fuel economy, giving drivers 30 mpg in the city and a whopping 41 mpg on the highway – perfect for any family road trip or cross-country adventure.

The 2021 VW Jetta is the perfect mix of modern design, performance, and fuel economy all wrapped up into one amazing package.
