Jetta is a compact sedan model series from Volkswagen that is here around us since 2019. The Volkswagen Jetta is a family car that fringes into the territory of luxury after meeting all the utility aspects of its class. Now that its 2022 model year edition has filled in the spaces of the leading sellers like the Volkswagen dealership near Santa Cruz, we expect a mild facelift to the already beautifully crafted sedan series. The automaker indeed met our expectations this time by bringing some subtle design changes to the Jetta series this year, with some relevant feature updates.
Among all these changes, the most prominent of all is the bump in the power output. It is derived from the recently introduced 1.5 turbocharged engine that can pump up a respectable 158 hp.
This 1.5L turbocharged engine now finally bridges the gap between the 1.4L at the lower side and the 2.0L one that equips the GLI models. With all these new updates to boast about, the 2022 Jetta is currently holding the record of best-selling sedans in the US market, besides the 2022 model year edition of the Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic, and Kia Forte.
For the year 2022, Volkswagen finally decided to replace the earlier 1.4L TSI engine with the new 1.5L TSI to increase the horsepower from 147 to 158. However, for transmission, Volkswagen decided to continue the same 6-speed manual gearbox and the 8-speed automatic one for this year as well.
The interior cabins of the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta models mostly carry over the major features from their previous generation. The changes we are seeing as new in the 2022-model year edition of Volkswagen Jetta are heated rear seats, wireless smartphone connectivity, and many more. Since space is in plenty in every 2022 Volkswagen Jetta model, it can draw a thicker crowd and turn them into successful sales.
The cabins of the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta models are highly customizable, as the automaker has offered a bevy of luxury items in the list of optional features to allow more comfort and luxury to sneak inside its cozily arranged family space. You can now add more features like ambient lighting, a new elegant dashboard design, with a fully digital gauge to enhance its look and feel of modernity as per your choice.
Volkswagen has also shown its mindful involvement in laying out the interior design of its cabins. Apart from offering 14.1 cubic feet of space at the trunk to load your stuff, the automaker has inserted multiple clever storage spaces as well as some cubby pockets around strategic places inside the cabin. On the other hand, a large-sized center console appears to be surprisingly deeper than the ones we see in other sedans gulp in many extra items of functionalities. The trunk space in the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta models, can be further expanded by folding the rear seats, explained a cordial staff of the Santa Cruz area Volkswagen dealership.
