There are plenty of sedans on the market that provides a variety of different engine options on their different trim levels. On the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, you have three different options across the six trim levels. The base engine, which is standard on the 2018 Jetta S, the new Wolfsburg Edition, and SE is a 1.4L four-cylinder with 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. If you're looking for more power, the SE Sport and SEL trim levels have a standard 170 horsepower, 1.8L four-cylinder engine that churns out 184 pound-feet of torque. The last engine option is a 2.0L four-cylinder that provides 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque on the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta GLI.
Technology is becoming more and more important to the way we drive. Along with the standard Bluetooth streaming technology, the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta also has several available advanced safety features that can help keep you safe while you're on the road. These features, like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, park pilot, front assist, and rear traffic alert, can provide warnings and even stop your vehicle if you are in a situation that could lead to a collision. There is also a standard rear-view camera system that gives drivers a better picture of what is happening behind their vehicle. The camera works through the standard five-inch touchscreen, which you can also use to control your devices while leaving them in your pocket.
For many drivers, a sedan is the perfect vehicle. It provides plenty of space while also being small enough to easily drive. There is room for five people, including the driver in the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta. A commonly accepted rule is that when you are riding in a vehicle with other people, the tallest passenger gets the front seat. With the Volkswagen Jetta, this is no longer a necessary system, with 38.1 inches of rear leg room, 53.6 inches of rear shoulder room and 37.1 inches of rear head room. This is only a minuscule difference from the dimensions of the front, which has 38.2 inches of head room, 55.3 inches of shoulder room, and 41.2 inches of leg room.
