The all-new 2011 Volkswagen Jetta delivers style and precision German engineering. The 2011 Jetta offers best in class rear legroom, a premium interior and Volkswagen essentials.
The Jetta features four engine offerings, including a 2.0-liter turbodiesel direct injection (TDI) Clean Diesel featuring common rail injection with 236 lb.-ft. of torque. Additional engines include the 2.0, 2.5 R5, and as of 2011, the 2.0 TSI.
All Jetta engines are offered with a manual transmission as standard equipment. An automatic transmission is available with each engine version as an option. On the new 2.0-liter TDI and 2.0-liter TSI, Volkswagen offers the 6-speed DSG — one of the most advanced and efficient automatic transmission systems in the world.
The 2011 Jetta is completely overhauled. Its new wheelbase and exterior length are significantly bigger than its predecessor — resulting in superior performance, more space and greater comfort. At 182.7 inches long, 57.1 inches tall and 70.1 inches wide, it is more than 3.5 inches longer.
Engineers went to work on the interior down to the finest details, providing a level of quality and perfection far beyond other vehicles in its class. The new steering wheel designs impress both visually and to the touch. On the center console are the newly designed and intuitive controls for climate, radio and radio-navigation systems. This console section is slightly inclined toward the driver for ideal alignment of the cockpit.
The rear bench seatback is split 40/60 and folds, increasing the car’s versatility. The tailgate can also be opened from inside the car by a remote unlock switch. Up to six airbags are also part of the equipment package.
Base model estimated mpg: 24/32
Estimated starting price: $16,000
