According to the official representative of the automaker, the VW Jetta sedan will soon be equipped with the same 1.5-liter turbo engine as the new VW Taos crossover. The price of the VW Jetta with such an engine has not yet been announced.

Volkswagen will soon introduce its new crossover, which he named Taos. It debuts on October 13, and many critics of the automotive world are confident that the new car will be very popular. One of the advantages of the crossover is the new 1.5-liter engine.

The four-cylinder, turbocharged engine is based on the 1.4-liter turbo engine that has long been used in the Volkswagen Jetta. According to a new report from our colleagues from Roadshow, the 1.5 TSI will soon be available for the VW Jetta.

“We have some plans for what models to put our engines in,” said Johan de Nischen, chief operating officer of Volkswagen of America. If you think about it, the transition to a newer and more efficient 1.5-liter unit makes a lot of sense for the Jetta model.

The power advantage of the new 1.5 TSI over its predecessor is small – the gain is only 11 horsepower, but the new power unit should be much more efficient.

Volkswagen promises advantages not only in “fuel consumption”, but, more importantly, in “real fuel consumption by consumers”.

The Jetta, which is due to be completely upgraded next year or in 2022, is already a relatively efficient offering in its segment: 7.84 liters of fuel consumption in the city and 5.88 liters on the highway. and 6.92 liters. in a mixed cycle. Assuming that the new 1.5-liter engine will increase the efficiency of the sedan by about 10 percent.
