The Volkswagen Jetta's roomy back seat and affordable pricing make it a popular compact sedan pick. The Jetta's base 2.0L four-cylinder mills is good for 115 horses, but it's easy enough to step up to the available 1.8L four-cylinder turbo and enjoy its 170 horses and 184 lbs.-ft. of torque. The Jetta TDI is also available for fuel misers who want maximum efficiency along with the impressive 236 lbs.-ft. of torque that this 2.0L turbodiesel has to offer.
