2018 Volkswagen Jetta Price
The Jetta is a particularly competitive market so Volkswagen just can’t increase the price of the current model. So, we believe that the price of the standard 2018 Volkswagen Jetta will start between $18,500 and $20,000. Since they should include different trim levels, you may see the price rising a bit.
2018 Volkswagen Jetta Redesign and Changes
Although Volkswagen is updating the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, the changes won’t be very significative since the current model is still one of the class leaders. So, you should only expect some tweaks here and there.
The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta will be using the modular MQB platform. This will allow it to lose some weight and include more aluminum and high-strength steel. So, you should notice that the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta will have a lower center of gravity making it easy to handle as well as it should also be an improvement in fuel economy.
When you take a look at the new 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, you’ll notice a few thing in the exterior. These include the headlamps and the bumpers. While the front bumper should remain pretty much intact, the rear bumper will suffer a complete restyling. In what concerns the headlamps, they should now include the latest automatic bi-xenon LED technology, as well as a new grille may also show up.
