What’s New for the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta?
2018 VW Jetta updates and new features
There are some obvious reasons to choose a new car, like the fact that they have no miles. Another one? Getting all the latest features. That’s why if an automaker fails to include significant updates, many shoppers question why they shouldn’t save money be seeking out a model that’s just one year older and has all the same benefits. It’s a fair question, but not one that we often have to debate here at Kuhn Volkswagen. VW does a fantastic job of providing significant enhancements on an annual basis. This can be seen in one of the most popular selections in the lineup, the 2018 VW Jetta. Here’s what you need to know about this year’s updates and new features.
2018 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition trim
Though each trim within the lineup received subtle updates to the exterior, the bigger news is an entirely new trim level. The Wolfsburg Edition is a step above the base S trim and offers 16-inch Linas aluminum-alloy wheels, a front sport bumper with fog lights, unique badging on the B-pillar, heated leatherette seating, a leather shift knob, heated windshield washer nozzles and rear seat pass-through.
The 2018 VW Jetta lineup has a total of six trims, the S, Wolfsburg Edition, SE, SE Sport, SEL and GLI. There are a total of three engine options, with the S, Wolfsburg Edition and SE offering the 150-horsepower 1.4-liter turbo, the SE Sport and SEL upgraded to a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbo and the performance-focused GLI outfitted with an impressive 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an impressive 210 horsepower output.
Another major piece of news that applies across the VW lineup is the new six-year/72,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. This completely transferrable warranty is an upgrade that is double what most of the competition offers.
The starting MSRP for the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta is $18,645 for the base S trim with manual transmission. What do you think of the 2018 updates? Share your thoughts with a comment here at the Kuhn Volkswagen Blog.
