What used Volkswagen Jetta saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Jetta saloon?

The Jetta may have a premium image, but the insurance costs are reasonable. Even the high-performance, 197bhp, 2.0-litre turbo is rated in group 15, which is two groups lower than the Golf GTI, even though the Jetta is pretty much as fast. Both, for the record, are rated at 35.3mpg.

The most economical Jetta is the 53.3mpg 1.9 TDI, but the 2.0-litre is not far behind, returning an impressive 48.7mpg. The entry-level 1.6-litre petrol returns 40.9mpg and is the cheapest of the lot to insure with a group 6 rating.
