Features to Enjoy
The 2018 model has the turbocharged 4-cylinder engines that are as much a trademark of the car as its European flair. Drivers have their choice of 1.8 liter and 2.0 liter options. It also adds a few new features to enhance your driving experience.
One example is the XDS Cross Differential System. This is featured on the Jetta GLI and is an electronic substitute for a traditional mechanical limited-slip differential. What does this mean for drivers? If front tires lose grip during turning, the system automatically applies the brakes to restore traction.
Here are some other features of note:
- Six choices of trims: S, Wolfsburg Edition, SE, SE Sport, SEL, and the top-line GLI, made specifically for performance.
- A rearview camera.
- 16-inch wheels.
- A 6-way driver’s seat with height adjustment.

The 2018 Jetta has received a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some of the safety features drivers can find in this model include the Intelligent Crash Response System. This helps drivers react when they may not be able to. In the event of an accident, it will turn off the fuel pump, activate the hazard lights, and unlock the doors.
Another great feature is the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. This slows the vehicle after a collision, lowering the chance of additional impacts or accidents.
