The 2017 Jetta competes with the Honda Civic, MAZDA3 and Toyota Corolla. Volkswagen has worked to give buyers the best of all worlds-- carefully packaging features and tweaking the Jetta's price level. Volkswagen wants buyers to feel they can get a premium German sedan or wagon at a friendly price, with fit and finish similar to that on cars that cost two and three times as much.

The Volkswagen Jetta offers precise handling, good fuel economy and a roomy interior for the compact class.

Volkswagen has dropped two previous powertrains and modified the lineup of its compact sedan for the 2017 model year. Diesel power is gone, due to the company’s scandalous use of an illicit device that allowed Jettas to pass U.S. emissions testing. In addition, the Hybrid Jetta has departed because of sluggish sales. That still leaves three engines available for 2017 Jettas.

The 2017 Jetta S was upgraded to include a rearview camera, two-tone cloth upholstery, and 16-inch wheels. The 2017 Jetta GLI comes in one trim level. Jetta SEL Premium, the top trim, is available only on special order.

Last redesigned for the 2011 model year, the sixth-generation Jetta is dated. It has been Volkswagen’s top-selling car, despite its conservative, old-fashioned appearance. All Jettas are four-door sedans. The hatchback version is the Golf.

Jetta S and Jetta SE trim levels use a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, with 6-speed automatic optional.

In the Jetta SEL, a 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder produces 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet, and all come with the 6-speed automatic.

The performance-focused Jetta GLI uses a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder, generating 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet. Either a 6-speed manual or Volkswagen’s dual-clutch automatic transmission may be installed in the GLI. In addition to 0.6-inch lower ride height and sport-tuned suspension, the GLI features a honeycomb grille, bolder front fascias, 18-inch wheels, red brake calipers, and flat-bottom steering wheel.

Known for precise handling and tempting fuel economy, Jettas compete against such popular compacts as the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze, and Mazda 3. Jetta’s boxy sedan configuration mixes with a traditional cabin layout, making this compact more roomy than some midsize four-doors.

Jettas have earned good, but not perfect, crash-test scores. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it five stars overall, but four stars for frontal impact and rollover protection (a calculated figure, not an actual test). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Good ratings for all tests, including the formidable small-overlap frontal test. IIHS awarded its Top Safety Pick+ designation to the Jetta if equipped with available advanced safety features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking (standard with SEL trim).


Jetta 1.4T S ($17,895) comes with 1.4-liter engine, 5-speed manual shift, 5.0-inch touchscreen radio, Bluetooth connectivity, rearview camera, and LED daytime running lamps. Jetta 1.4T SE ($20,895) adds a sunroof, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts, heated front seats, keyless access, pushbutton start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, imitation-leather seats, satellite radio, and a 6.3-inch touchscreen. Automatic transmission is available ($1,100) for either model. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Jetta 1.8T SEL ($24,995) has the 1.8-liter engine and automatic transmission, plus power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Jetta 1.8T SEL Premium ($26,995), the top trim level, is now available on special order only.

Jetta 2.0T GLI ($27,895) gets the 2.0-liter engine and 6-speed manual gearbox, plus 18-inch wheels, navigation, power driver’s seat, parking assistance, Fender premium audio, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Automatic is available.


Being nondescript isn’t necessarily a drawback in terms of attracting buyers. The Jetta hasn’t changed much since its 2011 redesign, yet customers keep buying, unconcerned about fashion trends. Updates along the way, including several freshenings for 2016, have been subtle, noticeable only to Jetta advocates.

Basically, the Jetta is a simple example of the familiar three-box sedan profile, with compact dimensions. Slab-type bodysides dominate the design. Up front, a three-bar grille extends into the bumper, creating a nose that fits neatly into Volkswagen’s corporate styling themes.


Like its exterior, the Jetta cabin retains its conservative, straightforward nature. As a benefit, its upright profile translates to easy entry and exit. Drivers can also expect satisfying rearward visibility.

Spacious in front and rear, the Jetta is among the larger sedans in the compact category. As a result, four adults can ride in comfort, with ample head and leg room, while hauling a substantial amount of luggage. Five will fit, too, at least for shorter jaunts.

Back-seat passengers enjoy plenty of legroom: 38.1 inches, to be precise. Even with a sunroof installed, cabin space is ample all around, with no sense of confinement. Still, heads of tall riders might touch the headliner fabric. Back doors open quite wide, making entry/exit easy. All Jettas have fold-down rear seatbacks, activated by trunk-mounted levers, which reveal a slim pass-through.

With 15.7 cubic feet of cargo volume, the trunk is quite spacious. One demerit: large elbow-shaped hinges protrude into the cargo space.

Large round instruments convey a classic-VW look. Drivers might notice that the steering wheel is positioned slightly closer to the center than usual, but the driving position isn’t really affected. Numerous surfaces in lower-end models are hard plastic. Front seats are comfortable, with sufficient side bolstering.

Driving Impressions

Roadholding and precise handling are the top Jetta benefits, scoring higher than most competitors, except for the Mazda 3 and Ford Focus. Ride quality also excels. Excellent suspension control yields an absorbent ride, nearly eliminating the bounding suffered by some compact sedans.

All Jettas have electric power steering, which behaves well. Brakes feel strong and inspire confidence. A Jetta can dash around corners more confidently than some popular rivals.

Tauter springs and shock absorbers, coupled with slightly lower ride height, help give the GLI more precise road behavior. Steering feels a bit sharper.

A base model with the 1.4-liter engine takes more than seven seconds to reach 60 mph, yet feels lively, though not exactly quiet when accelerating emphatically. The 1.8-liter isn’t noticeably swifter, but feels a bit more confident and energetic. Better-sounding, too. Jettas with either engine are enjoyable to drive. Most available engine power arrives at lower speeds.

The GLI’s 2.0-liter engine delivers stimulating, consistent power through 6,000 rpm. Expect some noise when pushing hard. Shifts from the 6-speed manual gearbox feel a bit notchy. The optional dual-clutch automatic reacts promptly, especially when paddle-shifted.

The 1.4-liter base engine is the thriftiest, EPA-rated at 28/38 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined, with automatic. Manual shift raises the highway estimate to 40 mpg. The 1.8-liter four is EPA-rated at 25/35 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined. With automatic, the GLI’s 2.0-liter engine is EPA-rated at 24/33 mpg City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined.


At any level, the Jetta is still an appealing choice in the crowded compact-car field. Upper-trim models, in fact, come across almost like lower-cost Audis. Even base models are nicely equipped, but we think the SE trim delivers the greatest value.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
