The seventh generation Jetta is built on the VW Group MQB A1 platform.
As a compact family car, the Jetta commonly competes against the likes of the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, and Honda Civic. It is also seen as the smaller version of the mid-size Volkswagen Passat.
Typical trim levels for the Jetta follow the typical VW options, including the base S, Special Edition (SE), R-Line, Special Edition Limited (SEL), and SEL Premium.
Engine options for the Jetta feature some of the more typical options found in VW’s lineup. Petrol options typically come in options between the 1.2-liter TSI inline-4 and the larger 2.5-liter MPI inline-5, although the latest generation is limited to a 2-liter TSI inline-4.
Diesel options have also ranged accordingly, with engines typically being between 1.6-liter TDI inline-4s and 20liter TDI inline-4s. However, the diesel engines were discontinued after the sixth generation.
Transmission options vary between a 5-speed manual and the 8-speed Aisin automatic. There are also 6-speed and 7-speed Direct-Shift gearbox variants dependent on the engine and trim options.
