You can learn more about the 2018 VW Jetta and all its qualities in this car review. We at Principle Volkswagen will walk drivers near Irving and Dallas through the finer points of the Jetta’s performance, interior dimensions and technology. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
2018 Jetta: A Very Spacious Interior
There’s doubt about it: The 2018 VW Jetta has quite the roomy cabin. Drivers and front passengers will enjoy 41.2 inches of legroom, giving even very tall riders room to stretch their legs and stay limber on long road trips. Rear legroom comes in at 38.1 inches—more than enough to keep kids and adults alike satisfied.
You won’t be short on cargo room, either. The Jetta’s trunk measures 15.7 cubic feet, making it only very slightly smaller than the impressive trunk of the VW Passat midsize car! You can pack up all your luggage or sports bags without a problem. And the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats mean you can take even more along for the ride.
Engine Performance Specs
The VW Jetta is geared toward shoppers who value efficiency most of all. You can choose from three turbocharged I-4 engines that produce 150, 170 and 210 horsepower, respectively. The base 1.4L turbo I-4 has the most impressive fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 28 city and 40 highway MPG.1
If you’re looking for a more fun way to drive, the 2.0L turbo-four in the GLI trim will get you to high speeds, faster. With 210 horses and 207 lb-ft of torque on tap, it’ll give you a boost when you need to merge onto the highway or slide past slower drivers.
2018 VW Jetta Technology Features
The center stack of the 2018 Jetta has a lot going on, but somehow manages never to look crowded. The standard infotainment system comes with a 5-inch touchscreen along with rearview camera functionality, helping you see all that’s going on behind you when you need to back up.
Available features extend far beyond that. You can get a 6.3-inch touchscreen with Android Auto™ and Apply CarPlay™ features, so you can easily send texts or manage your music library from the touchscreen. And that music will come through crystal clear with the nine-speaker Fender® premium audio system, for concert-quality tunes in the comfort of your cabin.
