Style & Design
The Volkswagen Jetta S is a stylish trim that runs on sporty 16-inch Rama wheels. It delivers excellent visibility with LED headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights, LED taillights, and LED license plate lighting.
To light your way when you’re parking at night, a Coming/Leaving Home feature is standard. It’ll leave the lights on for a few seconds after you shut the engine off and light your way when you unlock the car with your key fob.
Inside, there’s comfortable cloth seating for up to five people, plus 60/40-split folding rear seats that can help you load extra cargo. Feel free to make yourself at home behind its multi-function steering wheel with a 6-way manually adjustable driver’s seat.
At the front of your cabin, the Volkswagen Jetta S features a user-friendly infotainment system on a 6.5-inch Composition Color touchscreen. It’s Bluetooth® compatible for streaming music and making hands- free calls.
On top of helping you stay connected, the VW Car-Net® App-Connect system comes standard. This lets you sync your smartphone and access all your favorite apps with features like:
- Apple CarPlay®
- Android Auto™
This screen can also be used to help you back up. Whenever you put your car in reverse, the display will switch from the infotainment system to a live look at what the Rear View Camera System sees behind you.
Moving to the right, your instrument cluster offers lots of information on your drive with a Multifunction Display (MFD) that includes a trip computer.
Under the hood, the Volkswagen Jetta S has a 1.4L TSI® 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that can get up to 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This delivers a fun and sporty performance with standard electromechanical power steering with variable assistance.
To manage this powertrain, there’s a standard 6-speed manual transmission. An 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode is also available. The Tiptronic® feature gives you the best of both worlds by giving you the freedom to manually change gears without a clutch.
Overall, the VW Jetta S provides you with excellent fuel economy. It can get up to an EPA-estimated 30 city/40 highway MPG1.
