The all-new, seventh-generation Jetta is built on Volkswagen's MQB modular platform and sports a much sleeker design than past editions. Under the hood is the same 1.4-litre turbocharged engine (now rated at 147 horsepower), although the six-speed manual transmission can be replaced by a new eight-speed automatic. The Jetta comes standard with alloy wheels, LED headlights and heated front seats, while a BeatsAudio system, panoramic sunroof and ambient lighting are available.
