Join us as we dive into the history of the Jetta, highlights of the 2021 model, features that make the Jetta a hot commodity, and all the services we have to offer our customers. Let’s get started.
With the growing demand for smaller sedans in the late 1970s, VW looked to the Golf for inspiration. Although the Golf was a hatchback, VW borrowed its platform and added a trunk to create the all-new MK1 Jetta. The Jetta was available as both a two-door coupe and a four-door sedan, which made it incredibly popular among drivers, so much so that it eventually became the most popular VW model in America. This popularity paved the way for future generations beginning with the MK2 (1985-1992) that was larger than the first generation but offered the same reliability and efficiency as its predecessor.
The trend continued for the Jetta, with the third generation (1993-1998) becoming more aerodynamic in design and the fourth generation (1999-2005) ushering in the new millennium with a more modern exterior with its trademark arched roofline. By the fifth generation (2006-2010), the Jetta grew nearly 7 inches in length and boasted a larger interior cabin as well as new technology and comfort features. The sixth generation (2011-2018) added a longer wheelbase, while the seventh generation (2019-Present) added innovative technology and premium luxury features to boost the Jetta’s overall sophistication and capability.
With each new generation, VW breathed a sigh of relief since the Jetta saved the German automaker from bankruptcy throughout the 1990s in America. During the time, Americans weren’t impressed by any other model in the VW lineup, which meant most of VW sales were tied to the Jetta. No pressure, right? Fortunately, things improved for VW in the new millennium and paved the way for the addition of new models leaving the Jetta to remain a beloved staple in the lineup.
There are plenty of features that make the Jetta a hot commodity, some of which we listed in the section above. But what else makes the Jetta the top seller in the Volkswagen lineup? Here’s a closer look at the top features you’ll find on Jettas from 2018 to the present day that you won’t want to miss.
New Tech: VW added more tech to the Jetta in 2018 with an available 6.3-inch touchscreen display and a Fender audio system. By 2019, these features are standard with the addition of smartphone connectivity, a digital cockpit display, and a BeatsAudio sound system for an immersive listening experience.
Luxury Features: VW offered amenities like a chilled glove compartment on the 2018 model, which is a unique feature rarely seen in sedans. Newer models come with more standard features like power seating, leather interior, heated and ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, remote start, and keyless entry.
More Room, More Efficient: The seventh-generation Jetta is larger and offers a more spacious cabin than its predecessor. This means more room for you and your passengers. This spaciousness doesn’t come at the cost of efficiency, however, with the Jetta averaging around 30 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway.**
Here at Auburn Volkswagen, we want to help you find the best Jetta for your needs. However, we like to do things differently, and that starts with learning more about what you love about the Jetta and what you want from a top-selling sedan. From there, we’ll help you pick the best Jetta from our new, used, or certified pre-owned inventory and guide you through the purchase process to ensure you get a top-quality vehicle at a price you love.
Beyond helping you navigate the buying process, we’re also here for all your Jetta needs long after you drive off the lot. We provide comprehensive service, which means our service department can handle routine maintenance like oil changes or complex issues like drivetrain repair. We also offer programs like Volkswagen Care, which is a prepaid scheduled maintenance plan that takes the guesswork out of when your VW needs service. Or, if you prefer to handle things yourself, you can order the parts you need via our website or through our parts department.
Our focus on our customers isn’t the only thing that sets us apart from other dealerships. We’re also extremely proud of our community and do everything we can to serve others and give back, especially to our local military and nonprofit organizations. You’ll find us donating our time and efforts to organizations like the Auburn Food Bank and Santa's Castle, as well as lending a hand to military programs like Operation Cookie Drop. We believe in investing in our community to strengthen and make a positive impact on where we live.
