About Volkswagen Jetta

Like other vehicles in Volkswagen's 2017 lineup, the Jetta compact sedan returns with something of a limp. That's because, as with other models, the once-desirable diesel models are not being offered in the wake of the German automaker's emissions-cheating scandal. VW optimistically says the Jetta's trim lineup has been "simplified," with the former hybrid model also being shown the door. Still, what remains has some appeal. All 2017 Jettas are powered by turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engines, ranging from a small 1.4-liter in lower models to the potent 210-horsepower 2.0-liter in the performance-oriented Jetta GLI. The Jetta stands out from rivals like the venerable Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic with European character and spry manners, but its uphill battle against those stalwarts just got steeper.
