Volkswagen of America announced official fuel economy ratings for the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta.
S models equipped with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission have an EPA-estimated rating of 31 MPG city, 41 MPG highway, and 35 MPG combined. SE and SEL models equipped with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission have an EPA-estimated rating of 29 MPG city, 40 MPG highway, and 33 MPG combined.
Jetta models with the standard six-speed manual transmission have an EPA-estimated rating of 29 MPG city, 43 MPG highway, and 34 MPG combined.
The 2022 Jetta base models are now equipped with the 1.5-liter turbocharged and direct-injection EA211 TSI engine, the same one found in the Taos compact SUV. This new engine is designed to provide a combination of low-speed torque and competitive fuel economy, VW says.
All ratings are based on regular unleaded fuel.
According to the EPA, owners of the 2022 Jetta can save as much as $1,500 in fuel over five years compared to the national average new vehicle, while those who have the GLI can save as much as $500.
