2012 Volkswagen Jetta

The Volkswagen Jetta was up against some tough competition with the Subaru Outback, winner the last 4 years. But the Jetta was able to dethrone the champ by using the lowest maintenance and operating costs in its class, along with better than average depreciation. These results for the Jetta showed that top-notch engineering can also deliver top-notch ownership cost performance, resulting in the Vincentric Best Value in America Award for 2012.


Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
