Recently news began spreading that the next Volkswagen Jetta was to be priced substantially lower in North America than it is at present. If the Volkswagen Passat is to compete with the Honda Accord, after all, shouldn’t the Jetta compete with the Honda Civic and thus be priced like a Honda Civic?
Nearly nine Honda CR-Vs were sold in America every time somebody purchased a Volkswagen Tiguan last month. What’s worse, unfavoured vehicles like the Dodge Journey and Kia Sportage sell at a greater clip. Volkswagen was late to the game and the German conglomerate is now paying the price. The Ford Escape, clearly the most popular cute-ute in 2010, has been around for a decade. The Volkswagen Tiguan, on the other hand, came around more than a decade after the Honda CR-V debuted.
