According to a spokesman for 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 for a VW Jetta with such an engine has not yet been announced.

Volkswagen will soon unveil its new crossover, which it calls Taos. It will debut on October 13, and many critics of the automotive world are confident that the new product will be very popular. One of the advantages of the crossover is the new 1.5-liter engine.

The turbocharged four-cylinder 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 at the Roadshow, the 1.5 TSI will soon be available for the VW Jetta as well.

“We have some plans as to which models to put our motors in,” said Johan de Nisschen, COO of Volkswagen of America. When you think about it, moving to a newer and more efficient 1.5-liter unit makes a lot of sense for the Jetta.

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 significantly 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 fully renovated next year or in 2022, is already a relatively efficient proposition in its segment: fuel consumption in the city is 7.84 liters, on the highway – 5.88 liters. and 6.92 liters. in a mixed cycle. Assuming the new 1.5-liter engine will boost the sedan’s efficiency by about 10 percent.
