Enhance Your Jetta Specs with Additional Performance Features

While the Jetta engine specs are impressive, they aren’t the only thing that helps this Volkswagen achieve its stellar mpg ratings. There’s a suite of fuel-efficient features that allow the Jetta to maximize its efficiency: 

  • Tiptronic®–conserves fuel with the 8-speed automatic transmission by adapting manual characteristics to the automatic gearbox. Van Horn drivers can override the automatic settings with a torque converter instead of the clutch found in the Volkswagen Jetta S manual transmission.
  • Start-Stop System–boosts the Jetta MPG by automatically shutting off the engine whenever your vehicle comes to a stop. The system will re-engage the engine when you press on the gas pedal. 
  • XDS® Cross Differential System–applies braking pressure to the inside front wheels for sharper handling around corners. However, this feature is only available on the R-Line Jetta configuration. 
  • Driving Mode Selector–found in the SEL and SEL Premium Jetta configurations, you can choose between Eco, Normal, Sport, and Custom modes to maximize your Jetta fuel efficiency and better customize your drives.
