A look at the trims offered in the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta

For more than 40 years, the Volkswagen Jetta has served astute compact sedan buyers the best of all worlds. From comfort, roominess, technology and performance, Volkswagen has infused it all in this car from the onset. With nearly 18 million units sold worldwide in four decades, the recipe is clearly a winner, and hasn’t changed in the new 2020 Volkswagen Jetta.


Whether your interests lie principally in value, luxury or performance, Volkswagen has a Jetta tailor-made for you.



By looking over the list of features included in the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta Comfortline, the “entry-level” model, you’ll immediately understand that there is no such thing as a basic version.


The Jetta’s standard engine is a highly-evolved turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder which generates 147-horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque from an incredibly low 1,500 rpm. A 6-speed manual transmission for those who love the control is included. An 8-speed automatic transmission is optional.


With integrated features such as App-Connect smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, heated front seats, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED lights, and more, affordable has never seemed more like a steal.


And it gets better.



This mid-level trim raises the Jetta’s profile to near-luxury levels without the accompanying price tag.


Here, you will find an 8-inch high-resolution infotainment touchscreen, Climatronic dual-zone electronic air conditioning, keyless access with push-start button, leatherette seating, blind spot monitoring with rear traffic alert, to name a few.



This trim properly carries its name. It is the ultimate in luxury and technology which is added onto the Jetta’s dynamic and sporty styling.


Those craving an extra dose of panache will love the 17-inch alloy wheels and chrome window framing. Once onboard, this Jetta will appease all desires for technology. Included with the Execline are the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, front and rear heated leather seats, cooled front seats, navigation, heated steering wheel, BeatsAudio premium audio system and loads more.


And finally, the sportiest of them all.



These three letters are synonymous with handling, power, performance and style. With its 228-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, the GLI really goes with its included 6-speed manual transmission or optional 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. With a sportier suspension tune, beefier brakes and sharper reflexes, it is pure driving excitement.


The GLI also features 18-inch alloy wheels, Interior ambient lighting which can be customized with up to 10 colours, and the near complete list of amenities delivered with the Execline.
