For 2022 VW has updated the Jetta with updated styling and a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder, making 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The base model comes with a six-speed manual transmission and a 8 speed automatic transmission. For a sporty ride, the Jetta GLI is available too, with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder with 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. We think the Jetta isn't a the best looking, or the cheapest option in the market, but under the hood, is where the Jetta and specially the Jetta GLI shine.
