2018 VW Jetta Price and Specs Review | Merrillville, IN

2018 VW Jetta

Serving Merrillville, IN, Crown Point, and Hobart

Compact sedans have been popular for quite some time. They provide a balance between affordability and premium amenities. The Jetta is Volkswagen's entry level sedan that fits right between the Beetle and the Passat. Even though the vehicle category is already flooded with lots of competitors, none can match the quality and consistency of a 2018 Volkswagen Jetta.

There are six different model trims available for the Jetta: the S, SE, SE Sport, SEL, Wolfsburg Edition, and GLI. The 2018 Jetta has seen some updates over the previous year, most of which are spread across the different model trims. The SE Sport trim has been updated to include 17-inch wheels and black accents on the side mirrors and headliner. You also get a sunroof and rear spoiler. The SEL model trim also gets that new, sporty rear spoiler as well as a new chrome grille. The S and SE models also get updated front fascia. The Wolfsburg variant is completely new and comes with sport bumpers, fog lights and special edition 16-inch wheels.

Exterior and Performance

The S, SE, and Wolfsburg Edition are equipped with a 1.4 Liter, turbo-charged four cylinder engine. It's front-wheel drive exclusively, but has top handling and steering. You can choose between a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The SE Sport and SEL models are upgraded with a 1.8 Liter turbo that gets 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It's only available with the automatic transmission. If you're in the market for an even zippier driving experience then look no further than the GLI. It has a 2.0 Liter turbo engine under the hood that packs out a whopping 210 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.

Interior and Technology

The designers of the 2018 VW Jetta wanted to create a vehicle that was just as fun to ride as it is to drive. Whether you use an IOS or Android smart phone, you can plug them into the Jetta's App-Connect system and find your favorite apps on the center screen display. You also get enhanced navigation, sports scores, loads of music and weather with SiriusXM satellite radio. Enjoy it all through the Jetta's 400 watt premium Fender audio system.

Safety

The 2018 VW Jetta has already received a five star rating from the NHTSA and the previous year's offering was awarded top honors from the IIHS. The 2018 is on course for a repeat performance. That's because the Jetta has features like the Intelligent Crash Response System that turns off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights in the event of a crash. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System works to bring the vehicle to a stop after an initial impact to avoid more damage. You won't find these unique safety features on any other brand. The 2018 Jetta also has blind spot warning, forward collision warning and rear cross traffic alert.
