CARFAX 1-OWNER, NO ACCIDENTS!! The 2016 Jetta is a generously sized compact sedan wit excellent engines and just enough German personality to set it apart. What VW wants to do is redirect your attention to the new turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that replaces last year's wheezy 2.0-liter four cylinder base engine. It's a peppy little mill and gets 32 MPG EPA combined, 28 city/39 highway. Really, from the new 1.4 all the way up to the GLI's turbo 2.0-liter and the nifty gas-electric alchemy of the Hybrid, the Jetta's engine lineup is uniquely sophisticated and compelling in this generally value oriented segment. The Jetta is front wheel drive.
