2018 Volkswagen Jetta Review

If you’re looking for your next sedan that can function as a family vehicle, fuel-efficient commuter car, or both, check out the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta. Whether you’re taking it on a long road trip, or back and forth to work every day, this versatile sedan has it all going on.

Our team at Volkswagen Lee's Summit has put together this review of the classic 2018 Jetta, so that our drivers in Lee’s Summit, North Town, and Overland Park can get a better idea of everything this ride has to offer. Let’s get started by checking out the inside of the Jetta!

2018 VW Jetta: Interior Space & Technology

Volkswagen Jetta InteriorComfort and style make a big difference in your daily drives, and the 2018 Jetta has the right combination of both. With available leatherette upholstery, along with optional heated front seats, you’ll find that even your longest drives will be a little easier.

The VW Jetta offers impressive passenger and cargo space, too. With 38.1 inches of backseat legroom, even your tallest riders will find comfort on your next road trip. And with an impressive 15.7 ft³ of room in the trunk, you can pile those extra luggage bags or cooler with no problem.

When it comes to the latest technology, you’ll stay connected in the Jetta with a standard 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth® accessibility and a USB port. Plus, you can add the premium color Multifunction Display to view your trip and vehicle details in color, right in front of you!

2018 Jetta Power & Performance

Powering your way from one destination to the next, the 2018 VW Jetta offers three different engine options:

  • 1.4L turbocharged direct injection that puts out 150 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque
  • 1.8L turbocharged engine that produces 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L turbo that delivers an impressive 210 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque

With all three options, you won’t sacrifice power for fuel economy. For example, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 28 city/40 highway MPG1 in the base option—and with ratings like that, you might forget what a fuel pump looks like!
