Throwback: 2011 Volkswagen Jetta – First Drive Video

2011 vw jetta video first drive throwback

We are going more than three years in the way-back machine for today’s Throwback Thursday.  Watch as Roman provides a first drive review of the then all-new 2011 Volkswagen Jetta.  The redesigned Mk6 Jetta had a strong start, but very strong competition has slowed down its sales in recent months.  A face-lifted 2015 Jetta is coming soon, and TFLcar cannot wait to go for the ride.

2014 Volkswagen Jetta does have a new trick up its sleeve.  It’s the new 1.8L TSI turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 hp and 184 lb-ft.  The torque comes on early at 1,500 rpm and makes for a spritely driving experience.  It can be ordered with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.  The big benefit are the EPA ratings of 26 MPG city and 36 MPG highway.  The $18,895 starting price (before destination) is a good incentive as well.
