The new Jetta is expected to take its design cues from the Arteon four-door coupe and will feature multi-slat hexagonal front grille design as well as LED wrap-around tail lamps. The rear of the car gets a dual-tone rear bumper with faux diffuser and dual exhaust tips finished in black.
Under the hood, it is expected to include 1.5-litre turbo-petrol motor, a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engine in the global market. The current engine line-up of the Jetta includes 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel engine paired with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Mom and dad also have plenty of room up front with plenty of storage spots. Best of all, the 2018 Jetta SE comes at a bargain. My tester had no options, preserving its $21,245 MSRP. Volkswagen does tack on $850 for destination and delivery, but that’s a typical price for any new vehicle. The Jetta’s 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is also inexpensive to fuel. The EPA estimates the Jetta with the five-speed manual to get 28 mpg city, an impressive 40 mpg highway, and 33 mpg combined. I averaged right at 33 mpg during the week.
