VW Jetta: Fun & Fuel Efficient

The VW Jetta delivers a fun and sporty drive that can last for a long time before you'll need to stop for gas. It runs on a 1.4L TSI® 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets up to 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain can work with either a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic with Tiptronic® and Sport mode.

Both options provide you with great gas mileage. There's also an available Start-Stop System to maximize your fuel economy. Overall, the VW Jetta can get up to an EPA-estimated 30 MPG city and 40 MPG highway[i].

Comfortable Cabin

The interior of the VW Jetta features seating for up to five people. Whether you're behind the wheel or riding in the back, you can get comfortable with 41.1 inches of front legroom and 37.4 inches of rear legroom.

The second-row seats can also help you out when you need to load extra cargo. While the trunk has 14.1 cubic feet of storage space, you can use the 60/40-split folding rear seat to make extra space for longer cargo.

There are lots of amenities available too, including heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control. You'll even have a choice between cloth, V-Tex leatherette, and leather seats.

Safety & Driver Assistance Features

On top of having a smooth and efficient ride, the VW Jetta also gives you peace of mind. Its frame is built with a safety cage, while inside you're protected by six airbags, including Side Curtain Protection® head airbags that cover both rows of seats.

You'll also have more awareness of what's around you. For example, a standard Rear-View Camera System lets you check behind you when you're backing up. Lots more driver assistance features are available to help prevent accidents too, such as a Blind Spot Monitor, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Front Assist.

Volkswagen Infotainment System

Up on the dashboard, you'll have a choice between either a 6.5- or 8-inch display screen. This is where you'll find the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect system. It's Bluetooth® compatible, so you can stream music and make hands-free calls. It can also sync with your smartphone and access your favorite apps through Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and MirrorLink®.
