The 2018 VW Jetta Performance: Built to Move You Forward

The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta performance specs help to distance it from the boring small cars on the market, giving Lawrence drivers a choice of three powertrains – and that’s not even counting the Jetta GLI. We break down the specs of the engines below so you can know where to start with your test drive, but don’t be afraid to take two or even all three models for a spin – our top priority at Commonwealth Volkswagen is finding the right VW for you.

An Efficient Way to Have Fun

1.4L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder

The standard powertrain, the 1.4L turbo provides the 2018 Jetta with 150 hp, 184 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated 40 mpg on the highway.

1.8L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder

Drivers seeking a bit more power will find it in the 1.8L turbo, capable of 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque and earning the 2018 Jetta an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg.

2.0L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder

Want to max out the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta performance? The 2.0L turbo with premium fuel delivers 210 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque, earning up to an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg.
