Jetta MPG By Trim Level

With five available trim levels, the VW Jetta gas mileage will vary a bit, but they all offer an economic drive for your Madison drives. You can even enjoy the fun and control of a manual transmission when you choose the base-level VW Jetta S, although an automatic transmission is available. That eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard in the five other trim levels. Here’s how the VW Jetta MPG stacks up for each trim level:

VW Jetta Gas Mileage-Improving Features

While the Volkswagen Jetta gas mileage is born from that powerful yet efficient engine, Caseyville drivers will also benefit from a variety of features that make it easy to be a fuel-efficient driver. These features include:

  • Tiptronic®: Save fuel with an 8-speed automatic transmission that adapts manual characteristics to the automatic gearbox. The driver can override the automatic settings with a torque converter instead of the clutch found in the Volkswagen Jetta S manual transmission.
  • Start-Stop System: Boosts the VW Jetta MPG by automatically shutting off the engine any time the vehicle comes to a stop. The system re-engages the engine when you place your foot back on the gas pedal.
  • XDS® Cross Differential System: This exclusive R-Line Jetta feature applies braking pressure to the inside front wheels for sharper handling around corners.
  • Driving Mode Selector: Allows drivers to choose between Eco, Normal, Sport, and Custom modes to maximize VW Jetta gas mileage or prioritize traction. Find this feature on the SEL and SEL Premium Jetta trim levels.
