Volkswagen has announced the price of the 2013 Jetta Hybrid, and the amount you will have to part with to own one starts from $24,995. The sum doesn’t include a destination charge of $795. The vehicle is about to hit the United States this year.
The all new 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid comes in four versions, including the base model, Hybrid SE, Hybrid SEL and Hybrid SEL Premium.
The vehicle will be the world’s first hybrid to use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The vehicle packs a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a 27-horsepower electric motor.
It has a combined output of 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The high-tech engine is connected to a zero-emissions electric motor.
The base model could look murky, but features automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity. The $26,990 SE variant sports LED tail lights, power reclining front seats, a MDI audio interface with iPod connectivity, a premium touchscreen radio, Sirius and keyless access.
For $29,325, the company has added 16-inch alloys, a power sunroof, navigation, heated washer nozzles, heated seats and a full-power driver’s seat.
For the top variant, they feature bi-xenon headlamps with LED running lights, foglights, 17-inch wheels, a rear-view camera and Volkswagen’s excellent Fender audio system. It can run up to 60 miles per hour within nine seconds.
We think the price tag on Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid is reasonable. Will this fuel efficient car also offer a fun-to-drive experience as expected from a Volkswagen?
