One strategy Volkswagen is looking at to make its cars more appealing in the U.S. is to offer smaller and more efficient engines than its rivals but use turbochargers to maintain class leading performance. Only yesterday we reported that VW was investigating launching vehicles in the U.S. with downsized engines and today the carmaker has announced a new Jetta 2.0T model, which follows last year’s 2.5L version.

The specific model is the Wolfsburg Edition Jetta 2.0T, of which VW will supply just 12,500 units at a price of $20,875. Safety features include six airbags as standard (two more are optional), a crash optimized front end, hydraulic brake assist and an electro-mechanical power steering system. Differentiating the Wolfsburg from other Jettas are the ‘Wolfsburg Edition’ badging on both front quarter panels, 17in alloy wheels, leatherette seats and several exclusive colors.

Under the hood sits a 2.0L turbo engine delivering 200hp (150kW) and 280Nm (207ft-lb) of torque and mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or optional DSG.
