Specs and features in the 2020 Jetta

Value is big, and that’s what you’re getting in the 2020 Jetta. In a strange twist of good news to interested shoppers, the 2020 Jetta actually comes in at a lower price than the 2019 model, and that includes a lower price tag than the 2020 Civic. The Jetta is more than just a great bargain, though. Under the hood sits a turbocharged 1.4L engine that grinds out 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The Civic comes out a little less than that, and you have to upgrade to the top trim level to get the extra power. In addition, the Jetta comes with some innovative comfort and convenience features that include the likes of integrated navigation, a wireless smartphone charger, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and much more.

If the Jetta isn’t currently on your radar, you may want to reconsider. There is so much to offer, and you could have it at a price that’s hard to beat. Learn more by contacting us here at Quirk Volkswagen in Braintree and schedule a test drive here on our website today!
