The new Jetta sports a few cosmetic changes along with a new powerplant. The new 2.0-liter EA288 TDI diesel engine makes 150 hp between 3,500-4,000 rpm and peak torque of 320 Nm of peak torque between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm.

This diesel engine is the first engine in the US to use VW’s MDB – Modular diesel system. Many components of the MDB engines are used in a modular way, such as the exhaust system components and the injection system, turbocharging systems, and forced induction cooling within the intake manifold module.

To conform to both the current and future emissions norms in the US, the Jetta also features a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust unit. Compared to the NOx converter used in the previous models, VW says, the SCR promises a cleaner exhaust and more fuel efficiency.
