Edmunds hundreds of vehicles a year. trucks, SUVs, we run them and the numbers always tell a With that in mind we Edmunds Track Tested, a rundown of all the data we collect at the along with comments from the test drivers.

Volkswagen’s 2.5-liter five-cylinder was a Cheap and reliable and not too bad on fuel, a version found itself between the strut towers of Volkswagen Jettas with SE or SEL But it was an odd configuration, and saying it sounded is being kind. Now it’s

In its place in the 2014 Volkswagen SE is an all-new iron-block 1.8-liter that produces 170 hp and 184 pound-feet of Not only does this provide the same horsepower and torque than the outgoing but with EPA estimates of 29 mpg combined (25 highway), the 1.8 beats the old engine by 3 mpg and 5 mpg on the highway.

Volkswagen wasn’t however, to just drop in a new and call it a day. Nope. For it decided that the old twist-beam had to go. Now, like the Jetta all Jettas will come a multilink rear suspension.

0-30 2.6 (3.1 in D)

60-0 (ft): 118

Slalom (mph): 62.9

Pad Lateral Acceleration (g):

RPM @ 70: 2,000

Acceleration: What a little engine and what an over the naturally aspirated This 1.8 turbo has good right off the line, in part to the true automatic as opposed to the DSG. Regardless, smooth, power right to the 6,500-rpm point. Traction control be defeated; only got minor Overlapping throttle and brake at to bring revs to 1,800 the best time. Interestingly, it was in manual mode (which shifts for itself), as it short-shifted the 1-2 and 2-3 at more like 6,000 Shifts were relatively and still smooth. Blips the on manual downshifts (pull for downshifts).

Braking: Firm pedal though pedal travel was a bit on the side. Tires seemed to grip. Considerable nosedive and a light rear end with minor side-to-side squirming. stop was the shortest at 118 feet. stop was longest at 126 feet and the and final stop was 123 feet. Big odor by the fifth stop.

Slalom: Steering isn’t precise or quick, in fact rather syrupy, and the Jetta’s needs bigger antiroll Compound that with a control system that be defeated in any fashion (not traction control) and this one of the more rewarding experiences. just not sporting in any way. But it is a volume-engine Jetta, so maybe I was too much from the chassis.

Pad: Again, not much you can do as the stability control system is intervening. The Jetta leans WAY punishing the outside front
