Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 30 facts and highlights

1. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
9.8l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

2. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.9l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.2l/100 km

3. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
125Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

4. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
115hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

5. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
439l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l

6. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
1.08m
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

7. height

1.45m
Audi S4 Premium Plus (2014): 1.41m

8. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

84% have it

9. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
55l
Audi A8 (2014): 90.1l

10. Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
Volkswagen Jetta (2014)
89% have it

11. smaller turn radius

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
11.1m
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m

12. Has fully independent suspension

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

90% have it

13. more airbags

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.
6
Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC Sedan (2014): 11

14. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
8.1l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.6l/100 km

15. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
1.05m
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m

16. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
2.65m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

17. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

Rolls-Royce Ghost II (2014): 48

18. weight

1.85kg
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.85kg

19. larger interior

A larger interior volume makes for a more comfortable driving experience, giving more space for you and your passengers.
2665l
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015): 3766l

20. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
0.3Cd
Tesla Model S P85 (2014): 0.24Cd

21. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
2l
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 6.7l

22. shorter length

4.63m
Subaru Impreza 5-Door 2.0i (2014): 4.42m

23. width

1.78m
Nissan Versa Sedan S (2015): 1.69m

24. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
4
Rolls-Royce Ghost II (2014): 12

25. lower ground clearance

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
140mm
Dodge Dart SE (2014): 112mm
