Two TSI power levels and TDI with piezo technology
- Innovative twin charger engine available for the Jetta in two power levels
- Volkswagen offers a particulate filter for all TDI engines in its compact sports saloon
Following the successful launch of the Jetta last summer, Volkswagen is now adding the award-winning TSI system and the powerful piezo unit injector TDI to the range. Europe's largest carmaker now offers a choice of six petrol engines and three diesels for the Jetta.
One of the highlights is the Jetta TSI (103 kW from 22 550 euros, 125 kW from 23 950 euros; finance available for example with a monthly payment of 187.00 euros*). The engine makes use of the twin charger principle featuring a compressor and a turbocharger. This dual charging helps it produce up to 125 kW / 170 PS and a maximum torque of 240 newton metres. If that's more power than you need, the 103 kW / 140 PS "smaller" version of the Jetta TSI is also an attractive alternative to the larger and less frugal conventionally aspirated engines of similar performance. With economy figures of 7.1 (140 PS) and 7.3 litres (170 PS) per 100 kilometres the 1390-ccm twin-charged engine is superbly efficient and at the same time highly elastic straight off the mark: 90 percent of its maximum torque is already available at just 1 000 rpm.
Volkswagen – the world market leader in diesel engines – has also extended the TDI range for its compact sports saloon. The 2.0 TDI with piezo unit injectors now joins the line-up (from 26 325 euros; finance available for example with a monthly payment of 219.00 euros*). It not only delivers more precise and refined performance, but is also the most powerful unit on offer among the four-cylinder TDIs producing 125 kW / 170 PS and torque of 350 newton metres.
While a diesel particulate filter is standard with this engine, which comes with a six-speed gearbox, a filter can be ordered with all other Jetta diesel engines as an option. They can also be combined with the DSG dual clutch gearbox.
Volkswagen has also responded to the rising demand for automatic gearboxes: the conventionally aspirated petrol engines, 1.6 and 2.0 FSI, are now available in the Jetta with a six-speed Tiptronic with torque converter. As with the TDIs, the innovative DSG dual clutch gearbox has been added as an attractive option for the more powerful TSI and the 2.0 T-FSI (the top engine in the range, which delivers147 kW / 200 PS).
