The 2019 Jetta received a much-needed redesign. While the previous generation was incredibly popular, the new generation is even better with available features like 10-color ambient lighting and a BeatsAudio sound system. The turbocharged 1.4L engine gets an efficient 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, but does it need premium gasoline? The answer is no. in fact, there is virtually no added benefit to filling up your Jetta with anything other than regular fuel.

Vehicles that are of higher performance are typically required to use premium fuel. Being cleaner and more pure than regular, this fuel keeps performance vehicles like the VW Golf GTI or the VW Golf R running efficiently and gaining maximum power output. For a regular compact sedan like the Jetta, though, the engine is designed to accept regular fuel and as such will not run any better or get more power when you upgrade to one of the more expensive fuel options.
