2006 Jetta and Touareg named "Best Buy" By Consumer Digest Magazine

Text from Volkswagen of America.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The 2006 Volkswagen Jetta and Touareg have been recognized as “Best Buys” by Consumers Digest. Consumers Digest gives the honor to products that offer outstanding value for their price.

The 2006 Jetta is fresh off its complete redesign launched earlier this year. For 2006, the Jetta lineup includes an all-new GLI version as well as a sophisticated TDI® diesel option and a 200-horsepower optional engine choice. The Jetta is the number one selling European nameplate in the U.S. with more than 2.2 million units sold in the U.S. and Canada since 1980.

The Touareg remains unique in the market as a premium-entry SUV with vaunted German engineering and driving dynamics, off-road superiority and Volkswagen value for money. For 2006, the Touareg offers an upgraded navigation system and luxury features, including an all-new, more powerful base engine later in the year.

“This is an honor for Volkswagen,” said Adrian Hallmark, executive vice president, Volkswagen of America. “The Jetta is one of our most popular models, representing 40 percent of our North American sales. The poised, sophisticated Touareg brings balance to the often rough SUV segment.”

“We’re pleased that Consumers Digest noted these two vehicles for their exceptional value,” he added.

The Consumers Digest “Best Buy” rating is awarded to fewer than three percent of the competing models in any given product category, according to the publication.
