Volkswagen Jetta 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Volkswagen Jetta 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Jetta zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Jetta 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Volkswagen Jetta engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The new Volkswagen Jetta, coming in 2019, is the answer to those people who aspire to own a car in the vein of the Golf hatchback but don’t mind a slightly lower tier. Perfect for driving in the city and on cruise trips, the 2019 Jetta comes in a number of versions for your choice, including S, SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and R-Design.

At first glance, the Jetta is elegant, polished and appealing. Simple, and functional. It features 16” or 17” wheels and standard LED headlights.

The engine itself isn’t the most powerful of its kind, but still completely functional for its use. The Jetta comes with a 1.4-liter turbo-4 and 184 lb-ft of torque, and most versions feature an 8-speed automatic transmission and a very smooth clutch. Manual transmission with six speeds is characteristic of the S model.

The turbo engine runs smoothly and builds up to 147 hp making little noise with its 4 cylinders and accelerating from 0-60 in under 8 seconds.

The Volkswagen Jetta is a comfortable and functional sedan for urban driving. Its torsion-beam rear suspension is more than enough for that, although a rougher drive down a bumpy road could shake the cabin a little.

Speaking of the cabin, let’s see what’s inside the Jetta. This vehicle has been designed to provide comfort and simplicity, with a wider space for the passenger’s front seat that allows for easier movement and access to the dashboard. It has polished and simple finishings and enough room for everyone to sit down comfortably and enjoy the ride.

All models come with a control touchscreen, which ranges from 6.5” to 8” depending on the model, the SELs featuring the largest ones. The dashboard also comes with very appealing LED illumination that creates great ambiance at night while also allowing driver and passenger to handle the controls and other features easily.

The three-spoke wheel allows the driver to enjoy easy control of the vehicle, with quick response and a great balance of softness and sensibility that makes it perfect for straight-line cruising. SEL trims also offer four different drive modes that allow the driver to control the firmness and sensitivity of the wheel.

In conclusion, the Volkswagen Jetta is a simple car for urban and highway drives, featuring all a good car should have but without losing itself into the fancy. Some drivers state that other Volkswagen models of similar characteristics, such as the famous Golf, do it better for them, but for a far cheaper option that allows you to save about two grand, there is no doubt the Jetta has all it takes to do the job.
