2015 Volkswagen Jetta Review

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is an affordable small car with improved fuel economy in diesel models. The Jetta also gets new driver-assistance features for 2015.

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is available with four engine options. The base model has a 115-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic. The Jetta 1.8T is powered by a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower. TDI models have a 150-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic. The most powerful option is the top-of-the-line GLI, which has a 210-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. All 2015 Jetta models come with front-wheel drive. Equipped with a manual transmission, the base 2015 Jetta earns an EPA-estimated 25/34 mpg city/highway. The TDI gets 31/46 mpg with a manual transmission, which is an improvement over the 2014 Jetta TDI’s 30/42 mpg rating.

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta seats five and comes standard with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel and a four-speaker audio system. Options include a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette upholstery, a sunroof, push-button start, cruise control, a Fender audio system, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, navigation and Volkswagen’s Car-Net system, which integrates vehicle maintenance and security features with a compatible smartphone. New available driver-assistance features for 2015 include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning and park distance control. The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta starts at $17,325.
