    Expert Rating

    4.25 (Excellent)
    26 City / 36 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2017 Volkswagen Jetta OVERVIEW

    Despite its roomy interior and grown-up looks, the Jetta remains the most affordable route to putting a new VW in your garage. It's a well-rounded, highly efficient compact aimed at buyers who demand a lot of car for their money.

    What's New for 2017

    The lineup has been condensed into four main trim levels, each with substantially more standard equipment than last year.

    Choosing Your Volkswagen Jetta

    The current Jetta is known for its generous interior dimensions. Passenger and trunk space come close to midsize levels, and so does the base engine. The 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder puts out 150 horsepower and delivers up to 33 mpg in combined city and highway driving. As before, you can upgrade to a 1.8-liter turbo with 170 horsepower. Both engines come standard with a five-speed manual transmission, and a six-speed automatic is optional.

    At the top of the engine roster is a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that achieves 210 horsepower. The 2-liter can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automated manual.

    Trim levels correspond to engine size:

    1.4T S

    Comes with the 1.4-liter engine and a hefty load of standard features, including a rearview camera, heated front seats and washer nozzles, Bluetooth phone and audio, LED running lights, and two-tone cloth seats. The S rolls on 16-inch steel wheels. Alloys are optional.

    1.4T SE

    Adds leatherette upholstery, leather trim for the steering wheels and shifter, a sunroof, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and standard alloy wheels.

    1.8T SEL

    Gets the 1.8-liter engine, plus a power driver seat, automatic wipers and headlamps, automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

    1.8T SEL Premium

    Builds on the regular SEL with adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, a cooled glove box, an eight-speaker Fender audio system, and 17-inch wheels.

    2.0T GLI SE

    Receives the 2-liter engine along with upgraded braking and suspension systems. All of the other SE equipment is standard, along with navigation, parking sensors, the Fender sound system, and 18-inch wheels.

    CarsDirect Tip

    We're pleasantly surprised by how much extra standard equipment VW bestowed on the Jetta this year. Every model offers impressive content for the price. The SE stands out as an especially good value, all things considered.
