The 2021 Volkswagen Jetta is all about performance and straightforward style. That isn’t to say the Jetta is designed to be a performance car, it is simply designed to meet or surpass performance expectations and keep its owner and passenger satisfied, comfortable, and safe.

Even the lowest trim levels of the latest Jetta do exceptionally well at offering its passengers great safety technology and features. The highest trim levels turn the Jetta into a luxury-like car without pushing into luxury car prices. If you haven’t experienced the Jetta SEL Premium yourself, you might not believe it, but the Jetta can reach incredible heights when outfitted properly. The table below gives a little insight into each trim by offering two highlights characteristic of the trim’s offerings. Use this table to decide which trim is right for you and your family.

Trim Level Comparison

For sedans and small SUVs, 5 is the magic number of trim levels. There is at least one trim for every budget and various lifestyle needs, and the Jetta is no different. The S still provides owners with the kind of entertainment technology drivers expect and lots of safety features to boot. The R-Line may hold a unique claim on some features, but those that go for the SEL or SEL Premium instead will still find plenty of great features available at their fingertips. The SE will attract a lot of drivers, probably more than the other trims because of its rare offering of higher-level features at a lower trim level.
