The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta places in the bottom third of the highly competitive compact car class. It has substantial attributes inside and out, but its interior materials aren't as refined as competitors', and reviewers were disappointed with the Jetta's competent but underwhelming performance.

Pros
Above-average fuel economy
Large trunk
Roomy cabin

Cons
Lower-rent cabin materials than rivals
Less nimble than some competitors

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta is a competent, comfortable sedan, but it’s light on personality and feels a little old against fresh-faced rivals.

Pros
Roomy back seat
Comfortable ride
Strong turbo engines
Clean styling

Cons
Very conservative feel
Light on personality and fun
Best safety tech only on SEL
Pricey, especially loaded up
