2015 Volkswagen Jetta Buyer's Guide

Volkswagen’s 2015 Jetta, in some ways, helps keep the brand grounded. The compact sedan is not the most stylish or innovative model in the VW lineup, but its affordable base price holds Volkswagen to its niche as the entry-level German automaker, attracting new customers to the brand while simultaneously offering higher-powered options to compact car shoppers with a little more flexibility in the budget. While Jetta sales tend to rise and fall periodically, the 2015 model offers some compelling characteristics to potential buyers. The Volkswagen Jetta was last fully redesigned in 2011, and the 2015 model has been treated to an interior and exterior styling refresh. The features menu has also received some additions, and the available drivetrain options have been updated.

Why buy the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta?

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is good right out of the box, with an adequately powered entry-level model. However, the variety of diverse power options available on the latest Jetta helps this five-seater, front-wheel drive compact sedan really find an audience. Buyers can favor economy over speed and power, or vice versa, and still come away with an economical and nicely equipped package. The 2015 Jetta TDI, in particular, strikes a balance, offering good power and torque in addition to very competitive fuel economy ratings, among the highest in the category. Steering and handling are dialed in quite well, providing a comfortable ride. In addition, the compact 2015 VW Jetta offers interior space that is much better than it looks from the outside.
