The Volkswagen Jetta: A Delightfully Different Compact Car
Volkswagen, as a rule, doesn’t make cars that blend in – and for many car buyers, that’s a good thing. Especially in a crowded automotive segment like the compact car class, it’s nice to have a vehicle that isn’t content to fade into the herd. With the Volkswagen Jetta, that’s not going to happen.
And we’re not just talking about the way it looks, although the Jetta’s distinctive and stylish exterior is one of its many selling points. The Jetta’s standout aspects also include its peppy engine options, roomy interior and cargo area, smooth ride, and fun-driving performance dynamics.
Let’s say, however, that you love the Jetta’s offerings, from its high-end cabin to its standard and available tech and safety features – but that your budget is more comfortable with a used model than a brand-new one. Well, then you’re in luck, because the Jetta makes a fantastic used car option! Volkswagen vehicles are built to last and they do a good job of holding on to their value, so as long as you’re happy with the offerings that come in the used model you’re interested in, it’s a safe bet that it’s a solid choice.

Consider the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta
Between 2016 and 2018, there weren’t many significant changes to the Jetta, which means that going back just a couple of model years can get you a lot of this compact car’s most attractive features for a far lower price than you’d pay for a brand-new model.
The 2016 VW Jetta introduced a new turbocharged base engine, new driver-assistance and infotainment options, a newly standard touchscreen and USB port, and refreshed exterior styling on the GLI model.
Let’s look at the many 2016 Jetta configurations so you can get a better idea of what each offers. The 2016 Jetta comes in four models: the 1.4T, the 1.8T, the Hybrid, and the GLI. Each of the models receives a different engine, so you’ll get an idea of how much power your Jetta will be capable of based on the model’s drivetrain. Additionally, the 2016 Jetta comes in five available trims: the S, the SE, the SEL, the SEL Premium, and the Sport.
Depending on which trim you choose, standard and available features include heated front seats, a rearview camera, an infotainment system with a 6.3-inch touchscreen, push-button start, Bluetooth technology,* Apple CarPlay / Android Auto integration, a premium Fender audio system, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more.
With more cargo space than most compacts and some midsize rivals, the Jetta is an enticing option for those who don’t want to leave anything behind on their road trips or shove the overflow cargo into the backseat with some of their passengers.
