2018 Volkswagen Jetta Blue Compact Sedan Driving Through City Street

Never underestimate the value of a solid compact car in today’s automotive world. Though often overlooked by those who need roomier options, the compact sedan is a start for many new drivers. They are easy to maneuver, light on fuel and are often some of the safest option. For those who drive the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, there’s also a high expectation for quality. This model is a perfect entry in the automotive space as it not only achieves an EPA-estimated 28 city and 40 highway mpg rating, but it does it without once feeling underpowered.

Performance and build are the keys to success for any automaker, but those who opt for Volkswagen are often seeking just a little bit more. Though the Jetta is the most affordable option from the German automaker, it certainly doesn’t disappoint. High-quality, well-fitted materials combine with a thoughtful layout to make the Jetta intuitive from the moment you sit behind the wheel.

What’s new for the 2018 VW Jetta?

Every year, automakers tweak their models to be just a touch better than the year before. So how has the Jetta been adjusted? With a new base engine offered for 2016, the changes for the Jetta are relatively minor, with a new chrome grille for every trim level.

More important than a style enhancement is the Volkswagen People First Warranty, which now offers double the length of coverage. Instead of the standard three years or 36,000 miles of coverage we typically see in the industry, this new warranty lasts six years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. Not only does this give reassurance to drivers, but the warranty is transferrable, which helps models retain their resale value.

Two new trims have been added to the Jetta lineup, in addition to four trims that continue from last year. The Wolfsburg Edition sits above the base model S and adds on heated seats, unique badging, heated windshield washer nozzles, a sport front bumper and fog lights. The SE Sport is a sportier version of the SE, mainly adding on black trim elements and providing an additional Jetta option with the 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
