2014 Volkswagen Jetta Priced From $17,540

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta gets itself a new 1.8-liter turbocharged engine that offers a five mpg improvement on the highway compared to the outgoing 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.

Volkswagen’s best-selling car gets the new 1.8-liter engine in the SE and SEL trim models. The new powerplant is good for 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque; seven more lb-ft than the old engine. With the four-cylinder engine, the Jetta gets an estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

Other improvements to the 2014 model year include an electric-assist system replacing the hydraulic power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, and multilink rear suspension is now available on all models. Minor improvements include a relocated Media Device Interface (MDI) cable to the center console from the glovebox while the SEL, TDI with “Premium” and TDI with “Premium and Navigation” models receive a rearview camera. A navigation system and automatic transmission are now standard on the SEL trim.

The 2.0L S model starts at $17,540 including an $820 destination fee. At the other end of the pricing spectrum is the 2.0T GLI Autobahn with navigation, which is priced from $29,315.
