A recent independent study concluded that most Volkswagen models are the lowest maintenance cost vehicles in their class. The study affirms that Volkswagen's efforts in engineering are paying off and they are now the leaders in affordable reliability.

"It's a great day when we can announce results like this," said Duncan Movassaghi, executive vice-president, sales and marketing, Volkswagen of America, Inc. "The data from this study by Vincentric shows that our brand's commitment to engineering and quality is paying off. Putting a VW in your driveway is not just a fun decision to make; it's a smart and sensible one as well."

Vincentric, an independent automotive data firm, conducted a study to establish the best rankings for the lowest cost of automotive maintenance across many manufacturers and various models.

VW Jetta, Tiguan, Passat, Arteon, Atlas, and Atlas Cross Sport are all leading the way in low-cost maintenance

One of the best things about buying a new VW, aside from the 0% interest rates like those available at VW SouthTowne, is that no matter which model you buy, you're going to be saving money on maintenance when compared to the competition.

Vincentric's maintenance cost analysis found that most 2021 Volkswagen models have a lower cost of maintenance than key competitors in their categories. Specific VW highlights of the study include:

  • 2021 Atlas Family of vehicles has the lowest cost of maintenance among midsize SUVs. The Atlas Cross Sport ranked number one for the lowest cost of maintenance in the category.
  • 2021 Jetta ranks number one for the lowest cost of maintenance among compact sedans.
  • 2021 Tiguan has a lower cost of maintenance than competitive models by Honda, Toyota, and Subaru in the compact SUV segment.
  • 2021 Passat and Arteon models have lower cost of maintenance than competitive models by Toyota, Honda, and Hyundai in the midsize sedan segment.
