1.4T Engine Performance Specs

This year’s Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S uses the base engine in the VW Jetta lineup: a turbocharged 1.4L TSI I-4, with 150 horsepower and 184 lb-ft on tap. You can enjoy a lively drive around town, and you’ll even get solid acceleration as you climb to highway speeds.

You can get the VW Jetta 1.4T S with either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1.4T S trim is the only trim (aside from the Wolfsburg Edition) to offer the manual, which can deliver a sportier and more engaging ride. 

The 1.4T S with manual transmission gets the best fuel economy in the lineup (though the automatic isn’t far behind) with an EPA-estimated 28 city and 40 highway MPG.1 With numbers like that, you’ll find regular stops at the gas station becoming less and less frequent.

Spacious Cabin in a Compact Space

The 2018 VW Jetta 1.4T S may be a compact car, but its small exterior dimensions barely touch the spacious interior of its cabin. With 41.2 inches of legroom up front and a generous 38.1 inches in the back, adults can sit comfortably throughout the car, even for longer trips. The seats provide generous support and are cloaked in cloth.

That roomy cabin is complemented by a large trunk. Cargo space logs in at 15.7 cubic feet, which is more than enough to hold your weekly groceries. It can also fit four sets of golf clubs or nearly a dozen carry-on luggage bags. If you need even more room, the rear seats feature a 60/40 split to help you fit longer and larger items.
