The Jetta is Volkswagen’s stylish strong contender in the small saloon class, available in three trim levels, S, SE and GT.
The elegant Volkswagen Jetta has a sleek design, simple yet sophisticated. The SE gets you 16-inch alloy wheels, which are upgraded to 17-inch alloys on the GT edition. LED rear lights add a stylish touch and are also practical, being longer-lasting than conventional bulbs. Tinted rear glass not only looks classy, but is also heat-insulating, and helps to reduce glare in the cabin by up to 65 percent - ideal if you have young passengers in the rear.
The cabin is roomier than many of its class rivals, and is carefully designed for your comfort and convenience. You will find useful storage compartments and cup holders in the cabin, and the cooled glovebox means you can keep your drinks chilled even when the temperature rises. The entry level S trim has manual air conditioning, while the GT edition gets climate control. Door mirrors are heated and electrically adjustable and electric front and rear windows are included on all models. Chrome-trimmed surrounds on the panel look smart and white instrument lighting is easy to read. The advanced construction and welding processes give you a car which is safer and quieter to travel in.
The Jetta is available with a choice of petrol or diesel engines. The 1.4-litre TSI petrol is available in 121bhp or 158bhp editions, and there is also a 2.0-litre 187bhp petrol engine available. The diesel engine choices are the 1.6-litre TDI and the 2.0-litre TDI. Choose the 2.0-litre TDI 108bhp engine for the most economical option, since you will get 68.9mpg with CO₂ emissions of 105g/km. BlueMotion technology with start/stop technology helps to reduce fuel consumption.
Safety and technology
Standard safety features provided across the range include ABS, ESC, airbags, Hill-Start Assist, and a tyre pressure monitoring system. A brake pad wear indicator ensures that you are kept informed of when your brake pads need to be replaced. The Jetta is designed to keep you and your passengers safe in a collision, with crumple zones front and back protecting a central rigid cell.
The Jetta is fitted with an eight-speaker sound system, and a five-inch colour touchscreen provides the infotainment interface. Bluetooth and USB connection are included in the SE trim and above.
