The all-new Jetta will come to the U.S. with four different engine options, including a 2.0-liter TDI clean diesel engine, which delivers 140 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. Gasoline engines include the 2.0-liter (115 horsepower), 2.5 (170 horsepower) and the 2.0-liter TSI (200 horsepower). In addition to a new look, this compact car gets a little bigger for 2011, adding 3.5 inches in overall length, which translates into best-in-class rear legroom. I like VW for it's affordable German engineering, and this new Jetta comes through with a base price of around $16K.
