2023 Volkswagen Jetta Interior Dimensions

Contents of the material

What are the Jetta’s interior and in-car technology like?

The Jetta’s interior is classic Volkswagen. It’s simple and easy to use, professional looking and built to a cost. You won’t find the flare or luxury of the Mazda3nor the enticing style of the Civic, but there’s very little to offend inside the Jetta. It doesn’t have the new GTI’s interior, which is a plus in our book. Things get a bit nicer in the GLI thanks to its upgraded upholstery, hugging sport seats and sport steering wheel.

The standard touchscreen measures 6.5 inches, which is small, but competitive with other base model sedans. The 8-inch screen upgrade increases functionality considerably, but both are easy enough to use. The standard wireless Apple CarPlay is well-integrated (wireless Android Auto is also included), and the touch haptic controls are actually easy to use. We love the inclusion of a physical volume knob, and all other controls are simple and nicely laid out.

What are the Jetta’s fuel economy and performance specs?

The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta comes standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four. Its 158 horsepower is typical for the segment, but its 184 pound-feet of torque it sends to the front wheels is greater. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the S and Sport trim. An eight-speed automatic is standard on all others. Fuel economy for the manual is rated at 29 mpg city, 43 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined. A base automatic is rated for 31/41/35 mpg, but step up to the SE or SEL trims, and those figures drop to 29/40/33 mpg.

Crossovers for the whole family: named “Chinese”, which will last longer

The engine has a volume of 1.5 liters, which is unusual for our Volks – it belongs to the EA211 Evo family, which has not reached Russia. Atmospheric design, distributed injection and the absence of complex technical solutions such as working on the Miller cycle (as on the turbocharged version) allow us to hope for trouble-free operation.

The VA3 is not pleased with its sparkling dynamics. Up to 80 km/h it’s still okay, but after that it accelerates very reluctantly. Well, at least it’s not voracious: average consumption is 7.3 l/100 km. You can pour 92nd gasoline.

A faithful ally of the modest engine is the six-speed Aisin automatic, which changes gears as needed and when needed. Its sport mode is more for show: there is more roar, but the dynamics do not change.


It is believed that Russians love sedans so much that they can’t even eat them. Practice, however, does not confirm this. According to representatives of the official distributor of Jetta in Russia, the Major Auto company, almost all VA3s are bought up by legal entities. And “physicists” prefer crossovers. Currently one of the favorites VS5, but interest in the larger VS7 is gradually growing. We’ll soon tell you what he’s like in action.
