2014 Volkswagen Jetta SE 0-60 MPH and Race Track Hot Lap Review [Video]

2014 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SE has a new 1.8L turbocharged engine with 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. It’s also got independent rear suspension, but will all that make it handle better and move faster? We find out in this race track review. First it’s a 0-60 MPH test, then it’s a hot lap around the track to put the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SE through its paces.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
