2024 Volkswagen Jetta
The 2024 Volkswagen Jetta promises to bring something unique to the compact sedan market. While the compact sedan market is flooded with options for buyers, the 2024 Jetta stands out with its distinctive European flair and modern technology features. The Jetta’s design received a relatively extensive refresh with the 2022 model year, getting a new engine, enhanced exterior styling, and several driver-assistance aids as standard features. While there was speculation that 2024 might bring a complete redesign, much of what we see is similar to the 2023 model.

2024 VW Jetta – Trim Options
The new Volkswagen Jetta’s trim options remain the same as in previous years, featuring options to match every driver’s style and budget. Also included in the mix is the Jetta’s performance variation, the GLI. Let’s look at which Jetta trim level would be the best match for you.
2024 VW Jetta – S
The Jetta’s entry-level option is the perfect match for families looking for a practical and affordable compact sedan. In typical Volkswagen fashion, the S still includes an impressive offering of standard driver-assistance and technology features. Starting this year, Volkswagen’s IQ.Drive driver-assistance package is standard.
2024 VW Jetta – Sport
The Sport trim level still shares the same engine option as the base trim, but it gets an upgraded suspension to help tackle rougher terrain and conditions. A few changes to the exterior styling leave no doubt that you’re looking at the Sport trim option, including blacked-out trim on the grille and mirror caps.
2024 VW Jetta – SE
The SE is a solid choice for drivers looking for a few upgrades to the interior and technology compared to the base trim level. Here, you’ll find enhanced touches such as faux-leather upholstery.
2024 VW Jetta – SEL
The SEL is the most luxurious Jetta, featuring many amenities that will appeal to drivers looking for a more upscale driving experience. From the lush Vienna leather seating to the power sunroof, taking a spin in an SEL will leave you feeling like you’re sitting in a much more expensive sedan.
2024 VW Jetta – GLI 40th Anniversary
2024 is a special year for the performance-focused GLI, marking 40 years of production in the United States. Since the GLI debuted in 1984, Volkswagen is only producing 1,984 cars in its anniversary trim, which will feature unique badging to complement its turbocharged engine.
2024 VW Jetta – GLI Autobahn
The Autobahn variation of the GLI allows drivers to cruise in style, featuring adaptive dampers, a digital gauge cluster, leather upholstery, a powerful audio system, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated power front seats, and wireless charging.
2024 VW Jetta – Performance
This year’s engine remains unchanged after a complete redesign in 2022. Under the hood of the Jetta is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder capable of producing 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but an automatic is available.
The GLI trim levels come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque for drivers looking for more power. As with the standard Jetta, the GLI is equipped with a six-speed manual transmission unless you opt for the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The GLI provides drivers with exceptional steering to handle right corners, responsive braking, and a smooth ride thanks to enhanced suspension and adaptive dampers.
2024 VW Jetta – Technology
The 2024 Jetta sports a 6.5-inch touch screen, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports, and Bluetooth. For drivers who opt for the SEL trim level, you’ll be treated to an upgraded glass-covered 8-inch display screen with an upgraded infotainment interface. The GLI trim levels also come standard with the 8-inch display featuring a 400-watt, eight-speaker Beats Audio sound system. Other options include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, a wireless charging pad, and satellite radio.
2024 VW Jetta – Safety Features
The Jetta shines when it comes to standard safety features across all trim levels. Following its recent 2022 refresh, each Jetta has more driver-assistance features than ever. Drivers benefit from automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Moving up to the SE trim level adds adaptive cruise control and a lane-keeping system, while the SEL trim level throws in adaptive high beams.
