Why it’s Easy to Love the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta

When it comes to a classy, well-made, easy-to-drive sedan, there are few that compare to the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta. For starters, the Jetta offers a ton of standard features that are sure to impress, as well as optional equipment and features that elevate it just that much more.


Time to find out why it’s so easy to love the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta.


The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is available with a 6-speed Manual

For some, this might not seem like a big deal, however, the manual transmission is going the way of the dodo bird, as many manufacturers ditch the third pedal to focus on automatic-only trim lineups. Well, Volkswagen is not one of them, and the 2020 Jetta has a 6-speed manual transmission available on two of their trim levels, Comfortline and Highline. The top-level Execline version of the 2020 Jetta comes with an 8-speed automatic as the only transmission choice.


Great Engine

The Jetta hasn’t always had the best engine, that’s no secret. However, this latest version boasts perhaps the best one to go under the Jetta hood so far. The 1.4L TSI engine produces 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Coupled with either the 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic with Tiptronic shift, this engine is peppy and lively and feels great on the road. The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is a joy to drive, thanks in part to the power beneath the hood, but also thanks to a great MacPherson strut suspension setup and great handling, as well. Regardless of trim chosen, the 1.4L is equipped and only FWD is available.


Safety and Comfort

Another reason why it’s easy to love the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is the onboard safety features it offers. With available adaptive cruise control, along with stop and go technology – that keeps you moving with the flow of traffic without hitting the brake or throttle when traffic slows and picks up again – along with lane assist, blind spot detection and light assist (a system that automatically dims high beams when it detects oncoming traffic so you don’t have to worry about it).


Of course, there’s so much more to discover about the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta, and so many more reasons why it’s so easy to love this German sedan. You’ll want to head down to your local Fredricton Volkswagen dealer to speak to one of our experts, and don’t forget to book yourself a test drive, too.
