Volkswagen’s Jetta Hybrid fulfills your needs, desires and resources. We cannot call it a luxury car, but it will meet your daily needs like work, the gym, the grocery store or if you are out on a date. The electrified drivetrain makes the Jetta Hybrid the most fuel efficient car in line.

One of the most stunning qualities that make Jetta unique from other cars in the line is an aero kit, including a rear spoiler and modified front air dam to significantly lower the car’s coefficient of drag.

The Jetta Hybrid is Volkswagen’s first hybrid sedan. The 2013 Jetta Hybrid relies on direct injection, a turbocharger, and a dual-clutch gearbox for the internal combustion part of its hybrid drivetrain.

The car is powered by a 1.4 liter four cylinder engine and the drivetrain appear to be a smaller version of those found in Volkswagen’s performance vehicles. One of the drawbacks is the reduced trunk space for the car as it packs 1.1 kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery over the rear axle.

While looking at the electric side, Volkswagen includes a 20-kilowatt electric motor. The upgraded braking and idle-stop will give the Jetta Hybrid mileage of 42 mpg on city and 48 mpg on highway, or a combined 45 mpg.

The engine can bring out a maximum output of 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This Jetta Hybrid’s interior also features comfortable front seats, covered in leather, heated, and power-adjustable.

The 2013 Jetta can be regarded as a car with excellent fuel economy and good driving features.
