Volkswagen's best-selling car in the U.S. will become even more attractive to car buyers in the 2007 model year, as the base price for the sedan drops by $1,410, to $17,105 (including shipping).

The low-priced version will lose some of the features in the more-expensive 2006 base version.

VW has decided to move a little down-market in terms of product positioning in the U.S. market, going back to its roots as a volume producer of more economical cars. The cheaper Jetta will line up alongside the new Rabbit, which stickers about $1,000 less than the 2006 Golf.
