2012 Volkswagen Jetta SEL Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/jetta/2012/ The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta
has a ton of competition in the compact sedan segment. But the Jetta has a
few tricks up its sleeve to set is apart from the rest of the pack. First,
Volkswagen is the only non-luxury German automobile manufacturer. This
means you can expect a high level of quality and luxury in each vehicle
Volkswagen produces. Second, the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta has a very low base
price at $15,515 making is one of the least expensive vehicles in the
compact sedan segment. Finally, the Volkswagen Jetta is produced right here
in the Good Old U.S.A. at a plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This is great
for those looking to buy automobiles that support jobs in America.
There are more than 50 different trim levels on the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta.
These include variations on engines, feature packages, and body style
(sedan or wagon). The very base model starts at $15,515 with the SEL seen
here starting at $23,445. The top of the line model is the TDI Wagon with
sunroof and navigation going for $29,220.
The engine choices are plentiful with 4 different engines being offered on
the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta. The first engine is the most basic. This 2.0
liter 4-cylinder has 115 horsepower and 125 lb-ft. or
torque while getting 24 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway. The next
engine up is the 2.5 liter 5-cylinder making 170 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. of
torque while getting 23 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The next
step up is the turbocharged 2.0 liter
4-cylinder found on many Volkswagen vehicles. This little engine is found
on the GLI trim and puts out 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of
torque while averaging 22 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The
last engine is the venerable TDI which is a turbocharged and direct injected diesel engine.
This 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine makes 140 horsepower and a huge 236
lb-ft. of torque while returning 30 MPG in the city and 42 MPG on the
highway. All of these fuel economy figures are with the 6-speed manual
transmission installed. With the Automatic transmission the figures drop
just a bit.
The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta has a ton of usable interior space. In fact the
Jetta seems more like a mid-size than a compact sedan. There is over 3 feet
of rear legroom which according to VW is more than most large sedans. And
with the Wagon model you can get 67 cubic feet of cargo space. There is an
optional seating surface called V-Tex leatherette which looks and feel like
leather but cost much less. The Jetta SEL comes standard with heated front
seats as well. Since the SEL is one of the more expensive trims it does
come loaded with lots of great technology. There sound system is a 400 watt
Fender Stereo with a subwoofer and 8 speakers. A touch screen navigation
system is also standard on the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta SEL.
The Jetta is available in many different trims and configurations so that
there will be a model to suit you. The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta is a great
deal as it is one of the most fuel efficient compact sedans on the market.

2011 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.5L Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 2K
2011 Volkswagen Jetta Se
This has a 2.5L DOHC 5 Cyl making only 170 HP while paired to a 6 Speed
The exterior styling is very clean, somewhat sleek, but a bit conservative.
The Audi Influence is quite noticeable up front. The interior though, is
rather disappointing. While the layout is clean & it is roomy overall, the
Interior quality is quite poor. The Door Panels, dashboard, Center console,
& etc were all smothered with Hard Cheap plastics that are seriously hard
to the touch & non of those surfaces are pleasant to fell. The Leather
Seats were Ok & rear seat legroom & trunk-space was decent.
1 huge disappointment is with the 2.5L 5 Cyl engine. It is rather low in
horsepower & Toque
considering it's size. Theres smaller naturally aspirated engines out there
which deliver much better figures. Aside from that, this engine also
sounds very odd when revving & it actually sounds a bit rough on the high
end. I feel They could've used a turbo 2.0L 4 Cyl engine which is a much better
engine overall & is a brisk performer.
test it! The New VW Jetta for Europe | drive it
The Jetta is no newcomer on the roads, but Volkswagen's latest version is a
far cry from the angular first edition in 1979. Since then, VW have tamed
the Jetta's sharp corners and last year the sixth generation was rolled out
in the United States. Now the European version is hitting the market and
drive it! put it through its paces.There are major differences between the
models either side of the Atlantic, including price. The European Jetta
costs €9,400 more than its American counterpart.
