The current Jetta is known for its generous interior dimensions. Passenger and trunk space come close to midsize levels, and so does the base engine. The 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder puts out 150 horsepower and delivers up to 33 mpg in combined city and highway driving. As before, you can upgrade to a 1.8-liter turbo with 170 horsepower. Both engines come standard with a five-speed manual transmission, and a six-speed automatic is optional.
At the top of the engine roster is a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that achieves 210 horsepower. The 2-liter can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automated manual.
Comes with the 1.4-liter engine and a hefty load of standard features, including a rearview camera, heated front seats and washer nozzles, Bluetooth phone and audio, LED running lights, and two-tone cloth seats. The S rolls on 16-inch steel wheels. Alloys are optional.
