Looking at the current automotive market trend, we can easily assume that it is dominated by the utility based vehicles, better known as crossover SUVs. It proves the point very strongly, that the current generation is focused more on utility aspects, when it comes to transportation. But when we see a swell selling sedan model like the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta, we are forced to think otherwise.

We once again remember how the sedan body style has always been the pioneer in the automotive market, through decades. but at this juncture of a trend shift, we must thank the automakers like Volkswagen, who took courage in manufacturing an exemplary sedan model, that not only sells well every day, but also revived the interest of people in the timelessly beautiful sedan models.

The Santa Cruz Volkswagen dealer doubly confirmed our belief showing their sales record, how the 220 Volkswagen Jetta achieved successful revival of the compact sedans as many are now ditching the crossover SUVs for this beautiful yet useful sedan model.

they also intimidated us about the trim levels of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta that offers increasing levels of comfort and convenience in the consecutive order of its trim models that queue up as S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium models.

Power Grades

Across the entire range of 2020 Volkswagen Jetta model series what comes as a standard power setting is the 1.4-liter turbo-4 engine rated at 148-horsepower after being paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. It carries the engine power to the mostly the front wheels and optionally to all four wheels. The powertrain combination also sees an optional 8-speed automatic transmission.

Then there is the Jetta GLI model that is again divided into  S and Autobahn trims. Both the trims are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of making 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque when paired either to a six-speed manual as standard or with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic following the optional setting.

Highly Fuel Efficient

It is a rare scene to find any sedan like the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta to score so well in the fuel economy tests. The EPA rates its mileage count to be as high as 34 mpg from a trip that combines both city and highway drives. It is so far the highest range of fuel efficiency in the segment of compact sedans.

Comfort Level

All the models of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta lay out a spacious cabin for its boarders that soaks in comfort, more than what is expected from a sedan with this price tag. The seats are highly supportive with the perfect angle that can be adjusted as per your convenience. They are well cushioned to make even a long drive tireless. For infotainment, VW installed a 6.5-inch touchscreen display that runs both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone functionality.

The VW dealer near Santa Cruz confirmed that at the connectivity section, Volkswagen installs a wi-fi antenna with a subscription-based telematics system as a standard equipment on all trims, while the higher trims get a digitallyconfigured instrument cluster with optional features like heated steering wheels.
