The Jetta brand is entering our market: a subsidiary of FAW-Volkswagen, which produces budget cars. The official website has been launched, the VA3 sedan, as well as the compact crossovers VS5 and VS7 are available for order. We are talking about technical “clones” of the Volkswagen Polo/Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Taos/Skoda Karoq familiar to Russians, but with some features.

Jetta crossovers updated in China, which can be purchased in Russia

The Russian Jetta lineup consists of the same three models as the Chinese one. The VA3 sedan is a 4.5-meter car on the PQ25 platform. However, the engine is not the same as what Russians are used to: a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine (110 hp, 145 Nm) paired with a five-speed manual or a six-range Aisin automatic. Prices range from 1,928,000 to 2,022,000 rubles excluding promotions.

Alternatives are the VS5 and VS7 crossovers. The “five” is an analogue of the Volkswagen Taos or Skoda Karoq, and the “seven” can be considered a stretched version with a wheelbase increased by 100 millimeters. The technology is common: a 1.4 turbo engine (150 hp, 250 Nm) combined with a six-speed automatic, only front-wheel drive, but the rear suspension is multi-link.

Jetta VS5 costs from 2,952,000 to 3,152,000, Jetta VS7 – from 3,217,000 to 3,379,000 rubles, in both cases there are four trim levels, and the dealership offers a direct discount of 200 thousand rubles and bonuses when buying on credit or under the trade-in program.

All Jetta cars are covered by a two-year or 100,000-kilometer warranty. FAV-Eastern Europe LLC ensures that the obligation is fulfilled. However, the press release does not hide the “relationship” with Volkswagen: it says that Jetta cars are assembled from VW Group components using German quality control.

These cars have never been in Russia. But now they have been brought in illegally.
