2021 Volkswagen Jetta Engine Performance

  • 1.4L TSI® 16-valve DOHC in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine

How to Enhance Your Jetta Specs 

While the Jetta engine is impressive, that component isn’t the only thing that helps this VW sedan deliver exceptional fuel economy ratings. The Jetta comes equipped with a suite of technologies that are designed to prioritize power to systems that need it most, which in turn conserves energy. Here are some of the fuel-efficient systems available on the Volkswagen Jetta 

  • Tiptronic®: Saves fuel with the 8-speed automatic transmission by adapting manual characteristics to the automatic gearbox. Drivers can override the automatic settings with a torque converter instead of the clutch found in the Volkswagen Jetta S manual transmission.
  • Start-Stop System: Boosts the Jetta MPG by automatically shutting off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop. The system will then re-engage the engine once you step on the gas pedal. 
  • XDS® Cross Differential System: Applies braking pressure to the inside front wheels for sharper handling around corners. However, this feature is only available on the R-Line Jetta configuration.
  • Driving Mode Selector: Available on the SEL and SEL Premium Jetta configurations, this system allows drivers to choose between Eco, Normal, Sport, and Custom modes to maximize Jetta fuel efficiency or prioritize traction.
