VW Jetta S

The VW Jetta S is the base trim, but it’s anything but ordinary. Equipped with an athletic 1.4L TSI® 4-cylinder engine, it can deliver up to 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

It’s also able to deliver quick acceleration and confident steering with help from standard features like Electronic Stability Control and Electronic Differential Lock. Supremely fun to drive, the VW Jetta makes it possible to stay out all day thanks to an EPA-estimated 30 city/40 highway/34 combined MPG.*

This trim also starts the discussion out strong when it comes to comfort inside the cabin. It comfortably seats five occupants with over 41 inches of front legroom. With all this space for everyone on board to enjoy, it still manages to give you 14.1 cubic feet of cargo volume.

The VW Jetta S is also quite convenient with such standard features as Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect, Bluetooth® technology with audio streaming, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen display. This makes it simple to stream playlists, look up directions, and reply to messages from just about anywhere.

VW Jetta SE

As the second trim in the lineup, the VW Jetta SE ups the ante a bit when it comes to comfort and convenience. For starters, it has Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control. It also comes with heated front seats and power-operated side mirrors.

On good-weather days, VW Jetta SE drivers have the added benefit of a power tilting/sliding panoramic sunroof. Stretching far into the rear seating area, everyone can now feel the warm breeze while enjoying your daily adventures.

One particularly convenient feature that comes standard with this Volkswagen Jetta trim level is keyless access with push-button start that allows you to get on board and get started without having to fumble with keys.

VW Jetta R-Line

One particularly notable aspect of the VW Jetta R-Line is its style—evident from both the interior and the exterior. Inside the cabin, there’s the R-Line steering wheel badge, the black headliner, and the 2-tone seat design. There’s also V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces.

On the outside, you’ll find the R-Line badging, black grille accents, black painted side mirrors, rear sport valance, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Of course, it’s not all flash: The R-Line has the specs to back it up. Inside the cabin’s touchscreen, you’ll have Driving Mode Selection. This allows you the opportunity to adjust throttle and brake response to match your personality. Drivers can switch among several distinct settings: Normal, Eco, Sport and Custom.

Want to corner like a pro? You can opt for the available XDS® Cross Differential System. Exclusive to the R-Line trim, this technology applies extra braking pressure to the inside wheel during turns. The result is superior cornering capability.

VW Jetta SEL

The VW Jetta SEL boosts your listening enjoyment with the standard BeatsAudio® sound system. You also get to make use of an enhanced instrument cluster with the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit that features a high-resolution screen with customizable display.

This trim also has Adaptive Cruise Control and rain-sensing windshield wipers for an even safer driving experience. Up front, drivers have a wireless smartphone charger and heated steering wheel, while rear-seat passengers get special heated outboard seating.

Want to set the perfect mood? SEL drivers can change the interior environment with help from Volkswagen’s 10-color customizable interior ambient lighting. Now, your evening commute home just got a whole lot cozier.

The VW Jetta SEL Premium also provides you with an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror. In terms of comfortable seating, this trim comes standard with leather seating surfaces and ventilated front seats.

The SEL Premium also expands your digital touchscreen to eight inches and adds BeatsAudio® for crystal-clear sound.
