Preview of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta

Jetta still stands out as one of the company’s best-selling sedans.   It’s well-equipped, fuel-efficient, and above all affordable. The new Jetta also rides like a charm.   Good value and a low price are how reviewers would characterize the Jetta.  Why not see which model your car lease dealer in New Jersey will stock.

What Extras Does It Come With?

With the 2020 Jetta automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and rear cross-traffic alerts come as extra. However, adaptive dampers and wireless charging now come standard on the Jetta GLI Autobahn. The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta now offers a Cold Weather package for the SE and SE R-Line trims, giving you a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats. The heated washer nozzles and a remote start are a nice touch.   Volkswagen’s Car-Net connectivity system is standard on all models. Volkswagen also upgraded the standard headlamps to LED projector units and LED daytime running lights.

What is the Engine Like?

Every single model apart from the new-for-2000 Jetta GLI is fitted with a 1.4L turbocharged inline-four engine that’s good enough for 147 horses and 184 lb-ft of rotational force. While most versions come with smooth-shifting 8-speed autos, the entry-level model has a 6-speed stick. The Jetta only qualifies for a front-wheel-drive.   2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI   packs a more powerful 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque on tap. It rectifies all of the previous model’s performance issues. At 40 miles to the gallon on the highway and 30 mpg in the city you will find this model good value.

Safety First

The current VW Jetta received “Good” ratings in all the IIHS crash tests and a “Superior” rating for its optional automatic emergency braking system and we expect the same safety ratings from the 2020 VW Jetta.

Does It Look Good?

The new GLI is essentially a slightly sportier version of the standard Jetta. Its grille now has a honeycomb layout, while the horizontal trim that splits the element in two is finished in red,   instead of a red “GTI” badge, the sedan has red “GLI” lettering.
