The 2007 Volkswagen Jetta is only offered as a four-door sedan, with two different engines; models designated "2.5" have a 2.5L in-line five-cylinder engine that makes 150 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, and "2.0T" models have a 2.0L turbocharged, direct-injected in-line four-cylinder, making 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. 2.0T models can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just under seven seconds, according to VW, while also achieving EPA fuel economy ratings of up to 25 city, 32 highway. California-emissions states get cleaner PZEV versions of the 2.5 model.
The 2.5 gets a standard five-speed manual transmission, while the 2.0T gets a six-speed manual. A six-speed automatic with Tiptronic manual selection is optional on the 2.5; a six-speed manual DSG automatic--for faster gear changes--is optional on the 2.0T. The electro-mechanical steering system is also tuned for enthusiastic driving.
Standard equipment on all Jettas now includes air conditioning, cruise control, eight-way adjustable front seats, a CD sound system, and a tilt/telescope steering wheel. The base 2.5 comes with steel wheels, but the 2.5 upgrades to 16-inch alloys.
Front side-impact air bags and side-curtain air bags for front and rear outboard occupants are standard, but rear-passenger side thorax air bags are optional. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are also standard across the line. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is also standard on all but the base 2.5.
Wolfsburg Edition and Sport Limited models add more luxury features with the 2.5L engine, while GLI and Fahrenheit GLI models add more performance-focused high-end features, such as alloy pedals and xenon headlamps. Top options include a navigation system, a power sunroof, an iPod adapter, an AC power outlet, and a garage door opener.
With more standard equipment and a much lower price, the 2007 VW Jetta--especially the 2.5 model--stands out as a very strong value in its size class. What's more, it is also one of the most refined small sedans for the money. And with the 2.0T, the Jetta turns into a sleeper sport sedan that still returns good fuel economy.
Value for money (2.5); handling; ride and refinement; performance and fuel efficiency (2.0T).
For 2007, the big news for the Volkswagen Jetta is a very noteworthy drop in price. The Jetta's base price is cut $1400 compared with the 2006 model, yet it also has increased standard equipment, including an auxiliary input jack and cruise control. Salsa Red joint the color palette.
The diesel-powered TDI models are no longer available for 2007. A Wolfsburg Edition and a Fahrenheit GLI trim are new as well.
