The 2020 Jetta offers bold design, enhanced interior space and the newest technology from the premium class.
The 2020 Jetta is available in five trim levels: S, SE, R-Line, SEL, and SEL Premium. Jetta models receive more technology features for 2020. All models are equipped with the next-generation Car-Net telematics system and have in-car Wi-Fi capability.
SE and SE R-Line models offer the Cold Weather Package, which includes a suite of premium content including a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, heated wiper park, heated washer nozzles, and remote start. This is newly standard on SEL models and both SEL and SEL Premium models now sport standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The 2020 Jetta is based on Volkswagen's Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) platform architecture for a longer wheelbase, wider track, and a shorter front overhang. The fast-sloping rear roofline translates into a coupe-like profile. Dynamic lines and taut surfaces combine with the new silhouette to give Jetta a look that's at once elegant, yet athletic.
The Jetta interior architecture is engineered for increased comfort while supporting a sophisticated, upscale design. The cockpit is a driver-focused environment, with form following function. Both the instruments and the infotainment system are arranged in an easy-to-read horizontal orientation. Both the infotainment system and the climate-control interface are located on the center console, which is angled towards the driver.
The 2020 Jetta is powered by Volkswagen's 1.4-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine, making 147 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque.
While the 2020 Jetta is more technologically advanced than ever, retaining its fun-to-drive character was of critical importance. Thus, a six-speed manual transmission is standard, with an eight-speed automatic available. A Start/Stop System is standard on automatic-transmission models.
