2020 Volkswagen Jetta: Attractive, affordable and premium: Your compact sedan awaits
Too often, we settle for something thinking that it’s fine. When it comes to cars, and spending hard-earned money, no one should ever settle. The compact car segment offers a multitude of “appliances” to get from point “A” to point “B” but know that driving need not be a boring affair. The all-new Volkswagen Jetta combines usefulness with frugality and driving fun. And this is only a beginning.
Volkswagen engineers have built upon the success of the first six generations of the Jetta and designed a new 7th generation Jetta that will meet and exceed all expectations. With well over 17.5 million units sold since the car was introduced 40 years ago, the Volkswagen Jetta is one of the most popular offerings in the compact car segment. The draw to this car is its incredible breadth of capabilities, from being a roomy and comfortable mode of transportation to providing unmatched driving dynamics and fuel economy.
What shines through in all situations is the Jetta’s level of refinement. Based upon VW’s award-winning MQB platform, the car gains newfound levels of handling, a quiet and comfortable ride and a sense that this is a premium automobile.
Under the hood, the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine which delivers 147-horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. This generous serving of torque is available as of only 1,400 rpm, providing energetic acceleration from any speed. The power is sent to the front wheels via a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 8-speed automatic transmission. While performance is impressive, what will surprise you most is how fugal the Jetta truly is. Equipped with the automatic transmission, the Jetta will consume as little as 5.9L/100km.
Taking to the road will always be pleasurable. Not only is the driving experience beyond compare, the level of standard features will keep you entertained when covering long distances. The Volkswagen Jetta keeps you fully connected with its standard 6.5-inch screen with App-Connect including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink, and more. Higher trims are loaded with elements such as navigation, Beats Premium audio, wireless charging, and the customizable 12.3-inch Volkswagen Digital Cockpit.
All five occupants will find plenty of room and comfort. No matter what lies at the destination, be it hockey, camping or a shopping spree, the Jetta’s large trunk, with 399 liters of generous and usable volume, will hold it all down.
The new 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is not like most other cookie-cutter compact cars. It’s distinctly Germanic styling adds to the car’s premium effect, as do its standard 16-inch alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights. For more good looks, consider the optional R-Line package with its 17-inch Viper alloy wheels and driving enhancements such as the cross differential system, sport suspension and drive modes.
The all-new 2020 Volkswagen Jetta, with its design and engineering, needs only a test drive to further convince.
