The 2020 edition of Jetta from the house of Volkswagen has already been marked as a solid compact sedan choice for many, not only for the comfort zone it creates in its cabin, but also for its zesty performance. At one of the showrooms of Riverside Volkswagen dealership, we also got to hear about the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta sedan, that most of its configurations come with exceptional refinement while all of them pack immense value for the users.

Trims to Choose From

Volkswagen has been a trusted name in the market of automotive since decades. It enjoys a stable popularity especially among those for whom reliability and value are considered as top priorities. When Volkswagen released the 2020 year edition of its flagship sedan model Jetta, it made it reliable in all senses while packing in the most useful features in the ascending trim levels of S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium, in which the levels of comfort and conveniences heightens up as well as safety and performance score.

Highly Effective Performance Tweaks

All the 2020 edition of Volkswagen Jetta models are given a 1.4-liter turbo-4 engine in perfect combination of a 6-speed manual transmission that can crank 148-horsepower and a taller torque of 184 pound-feet. Theautomaker sets this as the standard, but to encourage the users who are also fond of driving Volkswagen offers in every Jetta model the option to set the engine in combination of an 8-speed automatic transmission to shuttle the engine power specifically to the front wheels.

At the top of the range, Volkswagen has reserved the GLI trim that is popular among the spirited drivers for its even zestier performance. For this Volkswagen has issued the GLI models a capable 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine that gushes out 228 of hp and 258 lb-ft of torque after being tied to beefier 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This combination of powertrain proves its power to be enough for speeding up the sedan from a dead 0 to a speed of 60 mph in 6.0 seconds.

The powertrains also get the support of a limited-slip front differential as a standard equipment in all versions to ensure excellent grip on the slippery roads while delivering predictable launches. Undercarriages of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI models you can notice a highly sophisticated multi-link rear suspension that is used to help the driver to make a swifter choice to bend quickly on a winding road.

Every 2020 Volkswagen Jetta model will have a strong and predictable braking response, but that gets even better in the GLI models so to say. Especially if you pay that extra few bucks for the optional adaptive dampers, they will undoubtedly smother down all the imperfections of the pavement even when driven in Comfort or Normal modes. They will stiffen up things even more than the regular suspensions we get to see in its rival models.

With all these up on its sleeves, the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta models simply rock on the roads as a unique series of sedans that look as good as the way they drive, agrees all the Jetta buyers we surveyed from the Riverside area Volkswagen dealerships.
