B16  SAIURDAY Sept 4,2010  Automotive  Àmmapolim  CMliS,^   WWW.HOMETOWNANNAPOLIS.COM   Volkswagen going after market share with the new Jetta  The world press launch of the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta was a long, multi-wave affoir recently concluded in San Francisco. Since I was scheduled for one of the later waves, curiosity got the best of me and I read some early online reports on the car.  DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD  By Carey Russ  Something to the effect of "Volkswagen wants to be the next Toyota and so has made the new Jetta bigger, softer and more bland and boring" caught my attention. And no I don't recall where I read that.  If true, it's a bad sign as VW's success in the U.S. market has been tied to the sporty nature of its cars. Uncommonly, Volkswagen is a working class brand about which people are passionate. It has  succeeded here by not building bland and boring cars. Gaining market share is good; but doing so at the risk of alienating your core customers is a mistake.  After spending a day driving two examples of the new Jetta up the California coast north of San Francisco and then back via the inland freeway route, I have to wonder just what car the author of that report drove. Yes, the 2011 Jetta, due in showrooms in this month is noticeably larger than any before. Yes, the styling is very different. Underneath is an all-new chassis structure. Yet it feels and works just as a proper Volkswagen should.  That said, even though the new Jetta is a Volkswagen through and through, VW would indeed like to increase market share. According to the presentation given to the press, market research determined that many people who might have bought a Jetta in the past were put  off by the price.  So the price, especially for the entry trim level, will be dropped — to $15,995 base plus a $770 destination charge. Does this mean that the car is a de-contented "stripper"? Hardly. That model, the S, comes with power windows, mirrors and door locks (with remote entry), a pollen-filtration air conditioning system, a 60 / 40 split-folding rear seat, AM / FM / CD / auxUiary jack audio, electronic stability control, antilock brakes, six airbags, head restraints for all five seating positions, active for the front seats and a tire pressure monitoring system as standard equipment.  The Jetta is already VW's core model in the U.S. market. With the 2011 version, VW has ambitious growth plans — and with its attractive price, good content and wide variety of offerings, that just may come to pass. Without alienating the VW faithftd.  2011 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA SEL  Courtesy photo  PRICE; $23,755 (with Sport Package) PmCE AS TESTED: $24,525  ENMNE TYPE: dual overhead cam 20-valve inline 5-cylinder HORSEPOWER: 170 9 5,700 rpm TORQUE (IMI): 177 0 4,250 rpm FUEL CAPACITY: 14.5 gallons  TRANSMISSION: 5-speed manual (6-speed automatic optional) FUEL ECONOMY (mpg): 23 city, 33 highway  Transportation  Sports Utility Vehicles Autos Trucks Vans Ree Vehicles Motorcycles Bikes Auto Accessories Auto Services Auto Leasing Aviation  An amendment to Maryland Vehicle Law 15-502. effective October 1.1995, requires a person advertising for the purchase, towing or rerDoval of junk, abandoned or unwanted vehicles to be licensed as an  Automotive Dismantler and Recycler  M.O.i  MvyMiMnfeisCMMMulE OOt)  CHEVY CAVALIER  '98 Fair condition, auto., 2.4L engine, $800/obo.
