"But, with the 2011 Jetta Sedan, it’s pretty clear that Volkswagen is speaking to the North American consumer. Volkswagen adjusted the exterior design to closely resemble that of its popular and successful sibling, the Passat. They have also made an affordable sedan even more affordable by setting the base price at $15,995."
