2018 VW Jetta SE Sport - FULL REVIEW


After reading 2018 Jetta reviews, I was expecting to see a way worse interior design, but as for me, it's pretty decent, there is just nothing fancy in it. Also, I noticed those great looking leather seats. Does anyone know if they are heated?

He was asked if there are any big changes from the 2016 model of is the 2018 is just a re-design and he said there aren't many big differences. I'm guessing the updates are more for things like Sunroof, Navigation, etc more than performance upgrades.

I found another post from 2016 Jetta owner. He sent this list of differences, check it out:
  • 2016 does not have LED DRL, all Halogens.
  • 2016 does not have a Sunroof.
  • 2016 does not have 18' Wheels or in black.
  • 2016 does not have LED turn signals integrated into the mirrors.
  • 2016 no black accents. It does have black mirrors but they're matte black.
  • 2016 does come with Navigation!
  • 2016 comes with two tone colored seats.

To him those 18's might have been a downside but what i have realized is that Jetta buyers who want more from their car often go the aftermarket route to get wheels or pick from something else within the VW group.

Shame about the sunroof in the 2016 model because they really open up a cabin and provide some much needed fresh air in the summer, Also a lack of mirror turn signals seems to be a step backwards. Otherwise everything else can come from the aftermarket.

What do you guys think about those seats? I don't like them. The previous 2016 Jetta Sport had elegant two-toned seats, but this seems too boring for Jetta's sporty look.

I kinda agree that these seats don't match Jetta's sporty look, but on the other hand, I like leather better than cloth, and it doesn't really matter to me how they look.

I like to think that VW does things like this intentionally to upsell people into trims that have more visually pleasing features. If no one believes me just give the new Jetta some time on the market, VW should have something more in store for us.

Hmm, interesting point, but what else can Volkswagen do to its cars to upsell people into these trims? I can only think of a big optional infotainment screen and unique sound system.

leather upholstery with sportier seats? More heated elements like rear passenger seats?
Really have no idea and it could be dependent on the trim, though I don't expect much in the performance upgrade area.
