The jetta has 160hp if I am not wrong. Its the same as the golf 1.4 tsi. Those are turbocharged engines and should be very sufficient for day to day driving. Going back to the s80 I dont think it comes in 3.2 . I think that biggest capacity was 2.8 but after that they replaced it with the 2.0 turbocharged engine. Parts would of course cost more than the malaysian/japanese./korean cars but then they last longer. The s80 is a pretty solid car and value for money. I think you can get it for less than 100k. If you are looking at new cars one car to consider is the 508, the basic model costs 150 plus , about the same as the jetta which I understand is quite bare and basic in the interior. The 508 is more well appointed. Or if you do not need a booth a 308 would be good also.
