All hybrids are not created equal. While most can boast great fuel efficiency, the Jetta Hybrid can deliver on the promise of power.2 With up to 170 hp and enough torque to leave green lights in the dust,3 not to mention a luxurious interior and tons of legroom and trunk space, the only thing the Jetta Hybrid doesn't offer is compromise.
How to cruise by the gas station.
At freeway speeds, when you're coasting, the Jetta Hybrid decouples the gas engine from the drivetrain. It's what we call "sailing" and what the planet calls "a breath of fresh air."
We took the current Jetta design and improved the aerodynamics to reduce drag by 10%4. We think everyone's forward motion should have a little less resistance.
The Jetta Hybrid strikes the perfect balance between gas and electric to help get the maximum fuel efficiency every time you drive. And it also gets 42 city mpg, so even urbanites get to enjoy extra time away from the pump.2
How to unleash a hybrid.
Efficient, yes.2 But step on the gas of the ultrafast-
shifting, turbocharged, 170-hp Jetta Hybrid with 184 lbs/ft
of torque and you'll see why this is the first hybrid in its class that
doesn't drive like one. The Jetta Hybrid also delivers a power boost when
you fully accelerate, creating an altogether un-hybrid-like driving experience.3
How to think like a hybrid.
The Jetta Hybrid smartly employs the right energy source at all times.
So all you have to do is enjoy the drive.
The gas and electric motor work together
to deliver the full, turbocharged 170 hp of
the Jetta Hybrid.
When the gas engine is solely engaged,
the Jetta Hybrid still maintains incredible
fuel efficiency and delivers power like a normal car.2
With regenerative braking, every time you
apply the brakes, energy is sent back to the battery to recharge it.
How to move ahead.
SPEED DUAL CLUTCH
The first 7-speed dual-clutch transmission in a hybrid. It anticipates the next gear for ultrafast shifts, so you'll go where no hybrid has gone before.
This state-of-the-art transmission allows you to use 20% less fuel than conventional automatics. While still letting you enjoy 100% of the drive.
