The Taming of the Turbo

Volkswagen Jetta
Starting MSRP: $19,495
The Jetta sedan is an all-new proposition; the 10th generation is a 2019 model available in 2018. It’s bigger and better and features more connectivity and refinement than the previous iteration. For those who prefer to shift their own gears, only the base trim offers a 6-speed manual transmission. Power comes from VW’s 150-horsepower 1.4-liter turbocharged four cylinder that became the entry-level powerplant last year. This engine delivers the goods at the pump, returning 28 mpg city / 40 mpg highway. Check out the performance-minded R-Line that ads some style, a torque-vectoring differential, and comes with a $23,845 price tag.
