VW Jetta: Engine Specs

The 2018 VW Jetta lower trim levels are equipped with a turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder engine, which produces 150 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This efficient engine is mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission, but there's also an optional 6-speed automatic transmission.

The mid-level Jetta trims receive a 1.8L Turbo engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. As if that power output wasn't impressive already, the top-level VW Jetta is equipped with a 2.0L Turbo engine, which delivers 210 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Paired to an available 6-speed DSG® performance transmission, the VW Jetta and its 2.0L engine offer seamless acceleration.

Regardless of engine choice, the Jetta is a fun car with strong steering and precise handling. If you prefer having a sportier ride, though, then the 2.0L Turbo engine is the ideal choice for you.

2018 Jetta: Interior Comfort and Space

Despite its compact size, the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta offers interior space that's more in line with a midsize sedan:

  • Headroom (front/rear): 38.2 in./37.1 in.
  • Legroom (front/rear): 41.2 in./38.1 in.
  • Shoulder room (front/rear): 55.2 in./53.6 in.

With its spacious cabin, the VW Jetta provides all passengers with ample room and visibility. Both front-row and back-row passengers can stretch out and relax, so there's no need to worry about cramping legs or aching joints. The trunk also offers 16 cubic feet of space, which is above average for this size.

Firm, bolstered seating is covered in high-quality, durable materials that are easy to clean. Plus, the heated seats and lumbar adjustment allow the seats to be configured for each individual driver and passenger.

2018 VW Jetta: Technology

Inside the VW Jetta, you'll find an array of high-end technology features to keep you occupied and content. If you're looking for something new to listen to, then use SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which provides over 100 channels of music, comedy, entertainment, news, and more. You can also seamlessly integrate your compatible smartphone using Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. By doing so, you can navigate to your favorite spots, send hands-free text messages, access your favorite music and podcasts, and much more.

As fun as the VW Jetta is, it's equally as safe with its suite of driver-assisting systems:

  • Rear View Camera System: When backing up, you can spot obstacles in your path thanks to this useful camera.
  • Blind Spot Monitor: If you attempt to change lanes while driving, this safety feature will alert you to any approaching vehicles in your blind spot.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: This advanced cruise control system maintains a preset distance from the car ahead of you, even if it speeds up or slows down.

Interior & Exterior Style

The 2018 VW Jetta maintains the conservative, classic look that defines its class. Minimal detailing and sharp lines keep it looking high-end, while a few chrome touches and subtle yet unique details set it apart from the rest.

Inside, the Jetta has a similar design feel. The palettes are simple and earth-toned with tiny details to break up the color, which gives it an understated but upscale look.
