Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T Engine Specs and Performance
Volkswagen has been a leader in turbocharged and direct injection technology, and this is now further exhibited by the introduction of a new engine from the automotive brand. The EA211 four-cylinder turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine is being introduced to the Jetta lineup, giving drivers a lot to look forward to from the Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T engine specs and performance.
Previously, the Jetta offered both a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter engine in the S trim and a 1.8 TSI engine in the SE trim. Both of these engines have served the Jetta well, but they are now making way to be replaced by the new 1.4T engine, while it has also been confirmed that the 2016 Jetta GLI will feature the 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged engine delivering 210 horsepower.
Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T Horsepower and Torque
The 1.4-liter TSI engine in the Jetta can produce up to 150 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 184 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,400 rpm. The turbocharging system offers great boost response thanks to the smart design of the intake manifold, allowing the use of a small, single-scroll compressor. The engine can be paired to either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission to fit personal driving preference.
Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T Gas Mileage
Volkswagen already has figures for its fuel economy estimation of this engine as well. When paired with the six-speed automatic, the Jetta 1.4T looks to offer up to an estimated 39 highway mpg, which is impressive considering the horsepower and torque that is produced. This figure represents a 13 percent improvement compared to the EPA-estimated highway fuel economy figures for the preceding 2.0-liter engine.
