2016 Jetta Delivers a Spacious Sedan with Energetically Efficient Engines
The 2016 Volkswagen Jetta may be a compact sedan, but you will think it is a midsize or larger when you get inside thanks to the expansive space and spacious trunk. There are numerous engines to choose from, including a hybrid powertrain, and the base engine has been updated to a modern turbocharged one. The new touchscreen interface is easier to use than the previous version found on VWs, appealing to those who make technology a priority.
Sleek Exterior Features of the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta
The Jetta has a sleek appearance that you will appreciate and all the exterior features you truly need. The base 15-inch steel wheels can be upgraded to 16-inch alloys or one of several 17-inch options. All VW Jettas come with heated mirrors, so you don’t have to worry about frost or fog clouding your view, and full power accessories for convenience. Most 2016 Jetta models also have heated windshield washer nozzles to prevent these from freezing in colder weather. You can even configure your Jetta to include a sunroof that lets extra light into your sedan or gives you a nice breeze. The top trims of the Jetta also feature automatic wipers, automatic headlights, LED running lights, and adaptive bi-xenon headlights.
Luxurious Interior Features of the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta
The Jetta’s cabin remains conservative compared to other models on the market, something that helps Volkswagen offer it for such an affordable price. The technology updates help keep it modern, while soft-touch materials add some luxury. The backseat of the Jetta easily dwarfs nearly every other vehicle in its category, including both sedans and hatchbacks, and the trunk continues the trend with 15.7 cubic feet, what you would expect from a large midsize sedan. Standard features like keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, and 60/40 split rear seats add convenience to the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta. Upgrading can add heating to the front seats, leather to the steering wheel, or V-Tex premium vinyl upholstery. You can also configure your Jetta with a rear center armrest, front reading lights, vanity mirror lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, 6-way power for the driver, and ambient interior lighting.
Turbocharged Performance of the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta
One of the most exciting parts of the 2016 Jetta is the new 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that replaces the familiar 2-liter from previous model years. This engine gives you 150 horsepower and a torque of 184 pound-feet. The 1.8-liter turbocharged engine available on the Jetta has 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic, depending on your preference and trim level. Those in search of power will love the Jetta GLI with its 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that puts you in control of 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet via a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automated manual known as a DSG. This engine will take you from 0 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds. If you are one of the Texas drivers who want the most efficient sedan, then consider the Jetta Hybrid. It has a 1.4-liter turbo engine with a 7-speed automated manual and an electric motor. Together, you get a net output of 184 pound-feet and 170 horsepower and the ability to reach 60 mph in just 7.8 seconds, putting it at the top of non-luxury hybrids.
