The 2016 Volkswagen Jetta performs better than ever thanks to a new base engine which delivers 150 horsepower and 184 pound feet of torque, an increase of 35 horsepower over the previous model year. A manual transmission comes standard, but an automatic with Tiptronic mode is also available.
The 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder TSI stands in as the new base engine, replacing a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated one. Other options include the 1.8T in the SEL and Sport models, the 2.0T in the Jetta GLI for maximum horsepower and the Hybrid 2.0T paired with a 20kW electric motor for improved fuel efficiency.
Standard features include cruise control, power windows with a one-push button, power locks, Bluetooth with audio streaming, cloth seating surfaces, four-corner independent suspension, a mult-function steering wheel, 15-inch steel wheels, a USB port and the all-new MIB II infotainment system.
If new connectivity features aren’t enough to drive you to take a ride in the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta, there’s nothing like a new engine to make the model more appealing than ever. A 1.4-liter turbocharged TSI serves as the new base model, delivering 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Both the S and SEL trim levels have the new engine under the hood, while those stepping up to the SEL trim level will get the more powerful 1.8T, with its 170 horsepower. A manual transmission comes standard, but the automatic is worth a look as the Tiptronic mode allows for control over gear shifts without needing a clutch.
Much of the safety features remain the same for the 2016 model year, with the addition of Automatic Post-Collision Braking to help prevent further collisions in case of an accident. The optional Driver Assistance Package has been improved to include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking and blind spot monitor with rear traffic alert.
