The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta costs $16,215 for its price of entry

Pricing details have just recently been announced for the 2015 Volkswagen Golf, which starts at $16,215, not including that usual $850 destination charge.

The level of entry for the 2015 Jetta includes a naturally-aspirated 2.0L four-banger while the next choices available with more oomph are the 1.8T and the 2.0T models, both with TSI direct-injection. In addition to the typical array of gasoline fours, there also exists the turbodiesel TDI with the EA288 2.0L four-banger. Topping the range in price and complexity is the Jetta Hybrid, with its 1.4L four-pot mated to an electric motor.

The base 2.0L engine features 115hp and 125 lb-ft of torque on tap with the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic. The 1.8T gains the benefit of a turbocharged to make 170hp and 184 lb-ft of twist while the 2.0L TSI GTI-sourced gasoline four also benefits from forced-induction to make 210hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Both can be had in a six-speed auto or manual.

The Jetta’s standards options list are determined by the same Base, S, SE, and SEL trims.
