The Jetta is Volkswagen's compact sedan that competes with top sellers like the Honda Civic and Chevrolet Cruze. Volkswagen offers the Jetta in a range of models from the budget friendly S to the GLI performance model and unique TDI. Like other entry-level models, the Jetta S cuts corners by omitting common features like cruise control and alloy wheels. As you climb the trim levels and options, the Jetta is priced competitively with its Japanese rivals. However, in the higher trim levels, there are roomier midsize cars available at the same price point. The high-performance GLI model equips a turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 200-bhp. One unique model in the Jetta range is the Jetta TDI. VW's turbodiesel model is rated at 30 MPG city, 42 MPG highway without the complexity of a hybrid powertrain. With twice the torque, the TDI is going to be more satisfying to drive than a complex hybrid or other high mileage alternative.

What Changed:

The Jetta line gains a hybrid model. The Jetta hybrid pairs a 1.4l turbocharged four cylinder engine with a 20kW electric motor to increase fuel economy by 20-30%.
