If you are in the market for a great compact sedan, you should consider buying the new VW Jetta. This vehicle offers a comfortable ride, a roomy interior and an extra dose of performance. Volkswagen also produces a performance-based GLI model for drivers who yearn for naturally spirited performance to conquer rough terrains around South Bend.

Engine Options

The base models have a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that produces 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. An improved 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is also available, cranking out 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Irrespective of the engine you choose, the Jetta is enjoyable to drive around town.

The current base engine feels quicker and more potent than its predecessor, and its torque is exceptional. While the manual transmission paired with the powertrain is engaging, the eight-speed automatic and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission equipped to the GLI model delivers smooth and rapid gear changes.

Fuel Efficiency

Customers in the Indianapolis area will be happy to hear that the new Jetta offers well-deserved fuel economy ratings. The new engine is more efficient than ever, as it returns a rating of 41 mpg on the highway and 31 mpg in the city. Even if you choose the powertrain paired with a manual transmission, expect to find ratings of about 43 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city.

Handling and Driving Experience

Jetta excels at offering a comfortable driving experience as you drive around Toledo. The adaptive damping suspension equipped to this vehicle proves to be exceptionally effective. Few sedans in its class can rival the silky, smooth ride offered by Volkswagen Jetta. Drivers who yearn for a sharp handling and more athleticism should opt for the GLI model.
