It’s what you say to your car-obsessed teen that pretty much shuts down the conversation: Can you afford it? But when she says “YES!” you have to hear her out. If she says “2025 VW Jetta,” keep listening.

Coming to dealers in a short few months is the 2025 Volkswagen Jetta, as well as the sportier 2025 Jetta GLI, a compact sedan that’s always been a good deal for both its elegant, grown-up looks, basics that don’t feel so basic and affordable price. It’s a car that feels both responsible and sophisticated at the same time.

And get this: with a starting price of $21,995 for the base S model, 2025 comes in at about $250 less than the 2024 model. It’s not a huge drop, but it sure is nice to see a pricing trend go down, not up.

So you can plan your shopping when the 2025 VW Jetta starts to hit dealerships, here’s what it looks like and what details you can expect.
