Insurance groups range from 1 to 50 and dictates the cost of the vehicles insurance. The higher the group, the higher the insurance will be for the vehicle.
BHP rates the engine performance of vehicles and stands for the brake horsepower.
CO2 is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the vehicle in grams per kilometre travelled, the lower the CO2 emissions the cleaner the vehicle is for the environment.

Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £310 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.

Ten Second Review
Volkswagen's latest generation Jetta is sleeker and better-equipped than before with a range that focuses on economical petrol and diesel engines. A 510-litre boot with folding rear seats means that you needn't forgo practicality if you prefer the four-door body style.
Volkswagen has tried selling us Jettas since way back in 1980 and, for the most part, we've looked at them, thought they were quite handy but have put our money on a Golf instead. We're clearly wedded to the practicality of a hatchback, the fear that we may one day prove unable to carry a tumble dryer is one that keeps Jetta sales under the thumb. Despite this, Volkswagen still tries to convince us that the boot ist gut. Was it Albert Einstein that once said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"? With this latest generation Jetta, Volkswagen has finessed the details and borrowed a little of what has made the Passat such a class act in recent years. Sleeker and better built inside, the Jetta might well remain a niche player, but you have to love a trier.
The Jetta is, as you might expect, spun from the same excellent chassis that underpins the Golf so no great surprises here. The engines on offer are a 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS unit with a six-speed manual gearbox; a 1.4-litre TSI 150 PS unit with a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox; a 2.0-litre TDI with 110 PS and a five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox; and a 2.0-litre TDI with 150 PS and either a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearbox. Got that? Good. There's a test at the end. The Jetta never feels quite as light on its feet as a Golf, perhaps due to its increased size, but everything it does, it does extremely smoothly. Whichever trim level you opt for, there's the opportunity to specify the DSG twin-clutch sequential gearbox. This makes city driving so much easier but starts to dent the BlueMotion's raison d'etre by knocking a couple of miles per gallon from the fuel economy figure. Refinement is excellent with very little wind or engine noise. Go for the GT model and you'll have some tyre thrum on poor surfaces but that's only to be expected.
Design and Build
The reason you'd choose a Jetta over a Golf would probably be that you'd prefer the styling or you'd rather have a car with a boot. Let's start with that boot. It's enormous. The Golf has a pretty big load capacity at 380-litres but choose a Jetta and there's a full 510-litre capacity up for grabs. To put that figure into perspective, it's only 10 litres down on what you'd get from a BMW 5 Series; a car that's ostensibly two classes up in size. Don't think that just because you opted for a booted car you lose the ability to load longer items either. A lever flips down the 60:40 split rear seats, and although they won't lay fully flat, this does allow you to post in items up to 193cm long, but do bear in mind that the aperture through which you must push them is a modest 58cm high. Rear leg room is generous, although the centre passenger on the rear bench will have to put up with a hard centre seat and also has a transmission tunnel to contend with. The Jetta's styling has evolved sympathetically, with the latest update making it sleeker than ever before, with an overall improvement in aerodynamics of 10 per cent. At the front, there's a revised radiator grille with three horizontal fins, and a reprofiled bumper beneath. At the rear the boot lid has been redesigned to incorporate an aerodynamically efficient lip, which extends into the wings at the side. Beneath this are cleaner tail lights and a revised bumper. Some budget has been directed at the interior too, with updated instruments, a redesigned steering wheel, a variety of fresh trims around the centre console and classier fabric designs for the seats and door trims.
Market and Model
The range opens at just under £19,000 for the 125PS 1.4-litre TSI in S trim, with little over £1,000 upgrading you to the diesel engine. The 150PS diesel starts in SE trim at around £22,500 and you'll need just over £23,000 to land yourself a GT-trimmed 150PS 1.4-litre TSI petrol with the desirable DSG seven-speed transmission. That would seem to be the sweet spot as far as value goes. Comparable rivals are surprisingly thin on the ground. About the closest in execution and target clientele is probably the Volvo S60, which is a couple of grand more expensive, model for model, than the Jetta. In order to incentivise sales, equipment levels are stronger than you might imagine for a German saloon. Standard equipment includes DAB digital radio, electronic stability control, electric windows and air conditioning. SE trim adds to the list with 16-inch 'Atlanta' alloy wheels, lumbar support, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, a leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel, MDI multi-device interface and cruise control. Go for the flagship GT trim and you get 15 mm lower sports suspension, 17-inch 'Lancaster' alloy wheels, front fog lights, front sports seats, automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heat-insulating tinted rear glass, a colour multifunction trip computer, driver alert system and ambient interior lighting.
Cost of Ownership
One continuing theme that's unlikely to differ is the strong residual value of the Jetta. The laws of supply and demand have propped up used values very well although the problem of depressed residuals via oversupply is a problem that Volkswagen would probably like to have. Day to day running costs are modest as a consequence of low insurance ratings brought about by excellent safety and security and also low emissions and strong fuel economy ratings from the excellent engine line up. It's all modern stuff with efficient BlueMotion Technology modifications, including stop/start and battery energy recuperation, and all engines are compliant with EU6 emissions legislation. Choose the entry-level 1.4-litre TSI petrol unit and you'll see an average of 52.3mpg and emissions of just 125g/km. The 110PS diesel fares even better with a fuel consumption figure of 70.6mpg and emissions of 105g/km. Unfortunately, none of the Jetta models quite manages to squeak below 100g/km. The other thing worth bearing in mind is that the DSG transmission improves the economy and emissions of petrol models but makes the diesel models marginally less efficient.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for
private individuals. This
is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
