I've owned a couple Vee-Dubs and just returned our long-term 2012 Honda Civic Si, and the super Jetta promised a slightly more refined version of the sporty-sedan…. I was looking at the Hybrid cars. Two different 18-inch alloy wheels can be ordered as options, along with dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, the Fender audio system, and the sunroof. When you close the doors it feels very solid. Inside the cabin, the Jetta provides a moderate amount of small-item storage. However in the new small overlap frontal test the Jetta Sedan earned an unimpressive 'marginal' rating.
The Jetta has one of the largest trunks in the class and several small-item storage compartments. I travel over 750 km every weekend, mainly hwy and fuel mileage is great anywhere from 1050 to 1100 km with one tank. The diesel delivers power in a way that is most useful and economical. It's a great car for first time drivers, college students, young professionals, families and everyone! As part of unprecedented settlements with federal and state governments, Volkswagen agreed to buyback from owners diesel-equipped models of this vehicle. The swap-out turns the torsion-beam axle on other models to a true independent suspension. I would not buy from them. The car started but shut itself again.
As fuel-efficiency rules start to get tighter, Volkswagen has expanded the Jetta's array of engine offerings five and transmission options four to a range that's unmatched by any other compact sedan. The trunk is big, with a wide opening and a low liftover height, but the hinges are fairly large and could rub against luggage if you try to use every cubic inch. The torsion beam remains, and few notice any loss from the better handling and ride that a multi-link rear suspension might bring. We prefer the very good automatic. It has great storage which.
Looking up the size ladder, the Hyundai Sonata and Subaru Legacy both are much longer in wheelbase than the Jetta, but give up an inch or three in back-seat leg room—and with the Legacy, a cubic foot of trunk space, too. Some models come with a rearview camera. The one issue i had is this afternoon it would not start. That's not particularly laudable; even mid-size sedans like the Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry earn highway ratings of about 35 mpg. Driving Impressions Jetta comes with a choice of powertrains and those choices affect the character of the car underway. All Jetta sedans have a fold-down rear seat, which exposes a rather narrow pass-through to the cabin. The associated navigation system, however, is a bit of a letdown due to the small screen and limited amount of display information.
This Volkswagen has composed handling, but compact cars like the are more engaging. Total powertrain output is 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Six airbags are standard on every Jetta, including dual front, side and curtain airbags. That one actually got just a little better mileage. By the way, the Fender sound system is fantastic. In the affected water pumps, the pulley or sprocket that turns the timing belt may develop microfractures causing the timing belt to fail. The rear seat can be a tight squeeze, though, but the seats fold down for good cargo space that rivals some small crossovers, while providing a lower liftover height and better visibility--not to mention the availability of a diesel powertrain.
That makes it the sole volume car this year to offer three different types of drivetrains: diesel, gasoline, or gas-electric. It's in back where you'll notice how much this Jetta sedan has changed from the previous editions. Regardless, i love my jetta and i would not buy anything else. None of these numbers is particularly competitive with other gasoline-engined compacts, but that's what the diesel and hybrid models are for. And if you're looking for a traditional station wagon, it's one of the few brands still offering one in this class. The 4 Motion system is not offered in the 2013 but with a locking differential, active stability control, anti-lock brakes, and hill assist you would be hard pressed to find a situation that you couldn't find your way out of. It's really reserved for only the most frugal shoppers who won't have anything but a German logo on the decklid--something to justify a 0-60 mph time of about 11 seconds, about as slow as a Honda Insight.
Edmunds suggests that you consider other cars. It has impressive driving dynamics, a competent amount of usable power, and minimalist good looks. This includes subcompacts, compacts, micro cars, and more. The rear seat can be a tight squeeze, though, but the seats fold down for good cargo space that rivals some small crossovers, while providing a lower liftover height and better visibility--not to mention the availability of a diesel powertrain. The is a that has higher safety scores and comes standard with Bluetooth and a rearview camera. The 2013 Jetta Hybrid uses a 150-hp turbocharged 1. In the 14 months we had it, we racked up an impressive 27,519 miles! The Jetta SportWagen continues with few changes, starting at a price significantly higher than the Jetta sedan that's the volume model.
It's good piece of mind. The Jetta S uses a 115-horsepower 2. For considerably less money than an A4, you get a slick-looking, sporty German sedan with all the trimmings. We like the available touchscreen stereo interface and its redundant dial knob, which is ideal for controlling a portable music player. I honestly believe reliability depends on everyone's driving style, maintenance, location, etc.

Unless otherwise indicated, specifications refer to test vehicle. Competitors include the Honda Civic, Mazda3 and Ford Focus. Other enhancements include a sport-tuned four-wheel independent suspension; lesser Jettas employ a semi-independent rear suspension.
. Granted, that's loaded and includes navigation and a moonroof. In packaging, the Jetta squarely beats almost every other compact, save for the new Dart, and even in that comparison its higher roofline nets better rear-seat room. Dual-zone automatic climate control, heated simulated leather upholstery and a Fender premium stereo are optional. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels are standard, with 18-inch alloys optional.
