The Jetta appeals to drivers seeking German engineering in a versatile, stylish, and fun-to-drive package.

The fuel-sipping 2010 Jetta TDI model once again features the critically acclaimed 2.0-liter clean diesel TDI engine — an efficient alternative fuel readily available in all 50 states. Featuring 140 horsepower and an impressive 236 lbs.-ft. of torque, the 2.0L is the most efficient option for drivers that also have a penchant for performance.

Standard on the Jetta sedan (S, SE, and SEL models) is the economical, yet powerful, 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 177 lbs.-ft. of torque.

For 2010, the Volkswagen Jetta sedan upholds fresh, German-inspired design cues of the previous model year. The Jetta sedan can be ordered with the racing-inspired Sport Styling Kit, which includes a combination of spoilers and body kits for a lower profile and better aerodynamics.

The inside of the 2010 Jetta sedan comes well equipped with a host of standard equipment, including: air conditioning, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD stereo system with MP3 CD readability, eight speakers and an auxiliary input, an updated instrument cluster, more ergonomic HVAC controls, eight-way adjustable support front seats, a 60/40 split rear seat, a newly-designed three spoke steering wheel with tilt-and-telescope capabilities, and the option of either cloth or V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces.
