Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Volkswagen Jetta

Kimberly Smith
Automotive Editor - February 4, 2020
  • 2020 Jetta is here; 2019s still available
  • Rebates: Unadvertised discounts available
  • Lease: From $169 per month for 39 months
  • Finance: From 1.9% APR for 60 months

Check out the all-new Jetta:

The completely redesigned 2019 Jetta, which features the same platform that underpins the Golf and Audi A3, is still available in-stock and is now being joined by the 2020 lineup, which adds an updated infotainment system with WiFi, as well as a new optional Cold Weather Package that includes features like heated steering wheel and rear seats, wiper deicers, and more.

Offers vary by region and are set to expire March 2, 2020. Our examples are based on those for Western States.

Extra credit:

Unadvertised dealer cash incentives ($2,250 for 2019 Jetta or $500 for the 2020) are supplied by the manufacturer to help dealers provide better prices. Dealers aren't obligated to pass those savings along, however, so be sure to shop around and be a strong negotiator on price.

Note that dealer cash incentives cannot be combined with this month’s promotional finance rates. There are, however, other dealer incentives that come into play should you decide to finance at those rates. See below for details.

In addition, members of the military can get an extra $500 in savings. Recent college grads can, too, when they finance through VW Credit.

Lease specials:

The 2019 Jetta S 1.4T with automatic is advertised at $169 per month for 39 months with $2,999 due at signing. This includes an allowance of 10,000 miles per year but is not a great value.

If you prefer a 2020, rates start at $179 per month for 39 months with $2,999 due at signing (10,000 miles per year). This is an even worse value.

Get 1.9% APR:

The 2019 Jetta is eligible for 1.9% APR financing for 60 months. Dealers have a $1,500 incentive to play with here, so be sure to push for those savings.

For 2020 models, the lowest rate available is 2.9% APR for 60 months, and the dealer incentive is $250.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - December 27, 2019

Model Preview

The Volkswagen Jetta was all-new for 2019, so it shouldn’t be a shocker that the 2020 VW Jetta will hit showrooms as a carryover model, save for some tweaks to its standard and available equipment.

The VW Jetta took on a new, more aggressive style in 2019, and this look remains one of the freshest in its class. Other than new 17-inch aluminum wheels on the SEL and SEL Premium trims, we expect no visual changes, making the 2020 Jetta virtually identical to the current model.

Though it retained its relatively simple theme from previous generations, the new-generation Jetta’s cabin took on an all-new look and loads of new technology. This gave is a modern-looking cabin free of distracting design cues and offered buyers premium comfort and amenities in its higher trims. Though it will be visually identical, there will be a few tweaks technical tweaks inside the 2020 Jetta’s cabin. These updates will include the new-generation Car-Net infotainment system and standard in-car Wi-Fi.

Other equipment updates in the 2020 VW Jetta will include the new optional Cold Weather Package on the SE and SE R-Line trims. This Cold Weather Package will be standard on the SEL and SEL Premium models and includes a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, windshield wiper de-icers, heated washer nozzles, and remote start.

2019 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2020 VW Jetta will continue with the same 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This engine will pair to a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.

The current VW Jetta received “Good” ratings in all the IIHS crash tests and a “Superior” rating for its optional automatic emergency braking system, but its “Poor” to “Marginal” headlight tests did it no favors. These subpar headlights prevented it from receiving the IIHS Top Safety Pick label, and we expect the same safety ratings from the 2020 VW Jetta.

The 2020 VW Jetta will compete with the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and Mazda Mazda3.
