2018 Highlights

For 2018, the Jetta receives only minor changes. There are two additional trim levels (the Wolfsburg Edition and SE Sport), but the GLI trim loses the manual transmission option. Cosmetic alterations are also subdued, with various new wheel designs and several trims receiving a new chrome grille.

Fun, Zippy, Great Handling Roomy Sedan
The clutch is super easy to use, the truck and back seat have all the room you could ever need. Very high quality build and materials. A fun, zippy turbo. Best bang for your buck out there.
I enjoyed driving it
I got this car as a substitute while my Jetta TDI was getting emission overhaul. It drives nicely and confidently, much more than a 2017 Corolla or even 2010 Mazda 3. Some noise from the 1.4t engine when revved up, but a nice noise - like subdued noise from race cars. The engine has enough power but has some turbo lag. The transmission shifts smoothly. This car can be driven dynamically with little effort and lots of fun. Fuel consumption at 50 mph is > 40mpg. For perfection, it needs to be a bit quieter (although it is not loud) and needs adaptive cruise control.
The second one was not a charm...
I just sold my 2013 Jetta SE with 124,000 mile and purchased a 2018 Jetta SE. The different between 2013 & 2018 are night and day when comes to quality, performance and ride. The 2018 has come down in all three - quality, ride and performance. When it comes to assuming things don't, I figured the 2018 Jetta would be as good or better than the 2013 and I made a big mistake for that assumption. They are not the same car and will never be, if you like a ho-hum mediocre car than the 2018 Jetta is for you. I do have to say the price was right at $19,754 and 1.9% for the 2018 Jetta SE, the warranty seems to be one of the best on the market at 60 mo/72k miles but overall I should have look further before I made the purchase.
