3/4 Front Glamour 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

42 City / 48 Highway
, Automotive Editor -

More fun to drive than most hybrids, the Jetta Hybrid has faster acceleration, better handling and a dual-clutch automated transmission instead of the typical hybrid continuously variable transmission. It sounds and feels like a gasoline-only powered engine with the fuel efficiency of a hybrid.

What's New for 2014

The Jetta Hybrid debuted in 2013 and it remains essentially unchanged for its second year. However, Volkswagen has added its new Car-Net telematics system to all of its vehicles for 2014.

Choosing Your Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

In addition to the seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission, the Jetta Hybrid’s powertrain includes a hybrid system made up of a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that, together, produce 170 horsepower. The motor also acts as a generator to restore battery power through a regenerative braking system.

A Jetta Hybrid has EPA ratings of 42 mpg city and 48 mpg highway—exceptional numbers, without doubt. But Volkswagen also offers hyper-efficient TDI diesel models that may make more financial sense, even if diesel fuel costs more than gas and they're rated for a less spectacular 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway. The reason? A Jetta TDI starts at $21,295, significantly less than the $27,645 minimum price of entry for a Jetta Hybrid.

Trim levels mirror those of the conventional Jetta:

SEL Premium

The SEL Premium trim adds bi-xenon adaptive headlights and a Fender premium audio system with eight speakers and a subwoofer, while the wheels go up another size to 17 inches.

CarsDirect Tip

For a balance of value and desirable features, the mid-range SEL strikes a nice compromise.
