Jetta S comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and washer nozzles, air-conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, eight-way-adjustable front seats with power recline, heated front seats, a 60/40-split rear seat and an eight-speaker stereo with a single-CD player and auxiliary audio jack.

The Jetta SE adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear-seat armrest, a sunroof (sedan only), two-tone leatherette vinyl upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob (sedan only), Bluetooth and a 10-speaker stereo with a six-CD changer and satellite radio.

On top of this, the Jetta SEL sedan adds 17-inch wheels, a multifunction steering wheel, iPod integration and a trip computer. The Jetta TDI sedan is equipped similar to the SEL sedan but comes with 16-inch alloy wheels and doesn’t have a sunroof.

The Jetta Wolfsburg Edition is basically an SE sedan with a turbocharged engine, 17-inch wheels, no exterior chrome window trim and Wolfsburg badges.

There are three engines available for the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta. All S and SE trim levels, as well as the SEL sedan, are powered by a 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.

The standard transmission is a five-speed manual, while a six-speed automatic with manual shift control is optional.

The 2010 Wolfsburg Edition sedan, according to Emond Motoring experts gets the same turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine found in Volkswagen’s temporarily discontinued sport-tuned GLI sedan. It produces 200-horse power and 207 lb-ft of torque.

The Jetta TDI features a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine that utilises Volkswagen’s clean diesel technology, making the car compliant with emissions requirements.
