    2016 VW Jetta S with the 1.4L TSI - $18,735 to start incl. mats, D&H. Owners are awarded with a frugal 28/40 mpgUS city/highway rating. #TrueCar shows this exact car can be picked up for about $14,500 brand new in the Virginias.

    Last August VW introduced their latest EA211 placed in their Jetta in S trim. The downsized drivetrain proves its power and more importantly efficiency with a 28/40 mpgUS city/highway rating with its standard 5-speed MT.

    The 1.4L is one of Volkswagen’s latest EA211 series of small engines. This features lightweight aluminum construction, an integrated (into the head) exhaust manifold, and a toothed-belt drive for its double overhead camshaft valvetrain that incorporates variable intake and exhaust timing.

    The 1.4L TSI engine in the Jetta features a 10.0:1 compression ratio, direct fuel injection, and single scroll turbocharger to produce 150 hp and 184 lb-ft. of torque. The intercooler is integrated directly into the injection-molded induction pipe. The engine is mated to either the base five-speed MT – you all know how much I love base trims with sticks!!! ;) – or a six-speed AT.

    VW currently has one in the Dallas, Texas and I am hoping it will eventually reach either the LA or Chicago Press Fleet.

    [​IMG] China is driving VWs sales growth in the Asia Pacific region right now. The company sold 321,400 vehicles in April, down 0.6 percent from the 323,400 sold during April of 2015.

    Year to date sales of 1,366,800 vehicles is up 3.1 percent over the 1,325,600 sold during the same period of 2015.

    Year to date sales in China alone account for 1,250,800 vehicles, up 4.8 percent over the 1,193,400 sold through the same period of 2015. This is almost 6 times the sales volume sold in the U.S. showing how important China is to the success of the iconic German automaker.

    Overall, if sales continue on the same trajectory, VW could still achieve (3.36 X 3) 10.08 million vehicles sold globally in 2016 despite the ongoing TDI problem within the U.S. and Canada. Toyota and GM will probably not experience 10 million vehicles sales globally this year showing the global sales power and demand for the groups offerings.
