It will also be the most fuel efficient Jetta to be released with getting around 45 miles per gallon.

This combination has the Jetta offering 170 horsepower and 184 pound feet of torque which is impressive for a hybrid. It will go from 0 to 60 in less than 9 seconds and what is even more interesting is that it will cruise at EV mode at speeds as high as 44 miles per hour, a first with this type of technology.
