A Short Account of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta Model Series


The 2020 model year edition of Volkswagen Jetta enriched the segment of compact sedans not only with its head turning style but also with its zesty performance, especially if you take the example of the range topping Jetta GLI models. The auto critics associated with the Seaside Volkswagen dealerships further interpreted this Volkswagen sedan as a much more refined version than its predecessors, while its new value packaging helped this model series to excel in the sales chart of the current day sedan models.

Trim Order for 2020 Model Year Series

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta as a modern day sedan also makes most of its configurations suitable for a creamy ride with exceptional level of comfort. Each of its trim levels, even though with the increased price, provides quality materials and good creature comfort features though it is understandable that the level of comfort will heighten up following the trim order as S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium versions, as the price tag increases in the same ratio.

Lining Up the Power Sources and Performance

The most popular powertrain configuration observed in the 2020 year lineup is a 148-horsepower making 1.4-liter turbo-4 engine that is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. This is also the standard configuration for the entire lineup, but Volkswagen does offer the buyers to choose an 8-speed automatic transmission to shuttle the engine power to the front wheels if they need the drives to be more relaxing.

For those who want an even more exciting feel behind the wheels, Volkswagen suggests them to go for the 228-hp making Jetta GLI that will sweep them off their feet with is highly strategic driving dynamics. The Volkswagen engineers equipped this Jetta trim with an exceptionally lowered suspension for a strong yet smooth acceleration, and it also helps the Jetta driver with goodhandling responses through a feather touch steering and brakes that manages the body bent on a winding road almost magically. Thanks should also go to the selective adaptive dampers that also balances the fuel economy in spite of this zesty performance. The EPA rates the Jetta GLI with 34 mpg of mileage from a combined trip that is unimaginably high for any other compact sedan we get to see on roads.

Comfort and Convenience Meter

Inside every 2020Jetta, lies a cabin dressed up in a conservative layout, quite in contrast to its exterior. The infotainment stays humble with a 6.5-inch display as standard although the buyers can always opt for the bigger 8.0-inch touchscreen counterpart that comes integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Connectivity stays at par the industry with a newly planted wi-fi antenna that is included in the list of standard  features this year on all trims, while the higher trim versions get acluster of configurable digital instrument and a heated steering wheel.

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta as described by the experts of the Volkswagen dealer near Seaside is an excellent performer on roads, and anyone who experiences a ride in it will invariably appraise its calm and quiet cabin atmosphere that never gets disrupted by the external road conditions because of the active noise cancellation technology.
