New Jetta 2018 will get only a minor upgrades for USA


Volkswagen make some of the most popular cars in the world, think of the Golf as an example!

The Jetta has been well received over the years, always selling in good numbers and has a reputation for reliability, comfort and great economy.
Volkswagen are hoping to improve upon the current model with the upgraded 2018 version, although in all honesty, there isn’t that much improvement needed.

2018 Jetta Release date

We expect to see the new 2018 Volkswagen Jetta in the showrooms around the second quarter of 2017 although VW themselves haven’t confirmed that.

2018 Volkswagen Jetta release date: mid-2017

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Price

The Jetta is in a competitive market so VW won’t be adding much on to the start price of the current model, we think it will still be a sub $20,000 vehicle, maybe even as low as $18,500.

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Interior

Inside the cabin, Volkswagen have added a little more quality (although it was already one of the best interiors) and updated the technology and systems fitted. Expect to see high grade leather and soft touch plastics with increased sound insulation for the luxury feel.

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Redesign and changes

Not much will change with the new Volkswagen Jetta 2018; the car is still one of the class leaders in its current form, so VW don’t need to invest heavily in changes, but there will be a few design tweaks.

The Jetta will be built upon the modular MQB platform, with an increased use in high strength steel and aluminum, this will have the effect of stiffening the car and lowering the weight, helping to increase fuel economy.

The exterior styling will also get a minor restyle, mainly centred on the bumpers and headlamps; the front bumper will have minor modifications, while the rear will be completely restyled. Also new for the 2018 Jetta will be automatic bi-xenon LED headlamps and a revised grille.

VW Jetta 2018 Specs

Nothing official is known regarding the choice of motors, but there is a good chance that VW will stick with the current line up; all gas, with capacities ranging from 1.4 liter through to 2.0 liter. VW will not be introducing a diesel to the U.S. market, partly because most Americans don’t like diesel and partly due to them still smarting a little over the diesel emissions scandal from a couple of years back; Volkswagen have stated that they will be concentrating their efforts on hybrids.
Power will be sent to the road via a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DSG auto transmission.
