Special features for 2015

The 2015 Jetta competes with the Honda Civic, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla. Previously, price kept it just out of reach of potential buyers of the competition, but since 2011, Volkswagen has worked to give buyers the best of all worlds -- carefully packaging features and tweaking the Jetta's price level. This means that buyers can get a premium German sedan or wagon at an entry-level price, with fit and finish similar to that on cars that cost two and three times as much.
The four-door Volkswagen Jetta sedan has room for five passengers and is offered in several trim levels that include: Base, S, SE, SEL and TDI. The base model features 15” wheels (steel), cloth seating, 60/40-split-folding rear seat and a four-speaker audio system. Upgraded trims and optional add-ons will net you amenities such as an automatic transmission, powered accessories, heated mirrors on the side, remote entry, powered front seats, larger alloy wheels, the Car-Net telematics system with Bluetooth integration and touchscreen command console, remote start, eight-speaker premium Fender audio system, sunroof, backup camera, fog lights and many others. Powering the base model is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s rated at 115 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. You can upgrade the engine to a beefier 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 170 hp and 184 lb-ft; or a 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder engine that gets 140 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. The Jetta is backed by a 60-month/60,000-mile warranty.
