The base engine is a 1.4-liter fuel-efficient fighter with 150 horsepower, which earns up to 28-city mpg and 40-highway mpg, as estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). You can find this champ chomping at the bit in the first three trim levels: S, Wolfsburg Edition and SE.
Meet the Jetta in the middle—with the SE Sport and SEL trims—and you'll be introduced to its 1.8-liter engine that pumps out 180 horsepower while achieving EPA-estimated ratings of 24-city mpg and 33-highway mpg. This, however, isn't the top of the line.
Step all the way up to the GLI trim and be welcomed by the powerful purr of a 210-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. Even better, that extra strength doesn't cost the GLI trim any fuel economy. As a matter of fact, as estimated by the EPA, the GLI can match the SE Sport and SEL both in the city and on the highway. Regardless of which Jetta trim level you choose, you can expect a fun and captivating driving experience.
Listed below are some key features from each trim level as well as the starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for each.
