The Jetta has been a successful badge in the American market. With an average of 9000-10,000 units sold by Volkswagen every month for the past four years.The Jetta received a significant uplift for its seventh generation and just became a bit wider and longer, stretching the dimensionsto look and feel Midsize,yet remaining a Compact car.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


The Jetta entered the American market with a bang and instantly became the best selling European car on North American shores.The trust that the badge enjoys from Volkswagen has been evidentover the years with seven-generation changes, keeping the Jetta modern to look with the relevant technologies over the years. The 2021 Jetta gets improved Audi-sourced digital gauge cluster, heated seats (in higher trims) Automatic climate control, 6” and 8” Infotainment system that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As far as looks are concerned, the Jetta had always played safely without many dramatic lines.

However, the new grille style from Volkswagen has been pretty eye-catching, the 2021 Jetta will continue the same and the R-line with it’s blacked out scheme really gives that little touch to distinguish itself from the crowd. The familiar wide grills then cut into the headlight’s has a very typical European sense of styling. The Jetta sits on the tried and tested MQB platform that opens the space up on the inside too. This compact sedan currently faces competition fromthe dramatic and exciting to look at - Honda Civic, the black horse in the troupe - Kia Forte, and the known for its reliability - Hyundai Elantra. How well does the Volkswagen Jetta hold itself up in 2021?

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Volkswagen’s build quality in the economic class of cars has been critically acclaimed. Reliability quotients and easy-on-the-pocket costs have helped the Jetta in the past and it will continue to shine as well. Especially when compared toJapanese brands like the Honda Civic. Like most popular automobiles, the Jetta has been a top-notch selling car for its robust quality and long-lasting powertrain. Sharing the MQB platform with premium cars from Audi, the 2021 Jetta reliability quotient remains unchanged from its last iteration change. The 2019 Volkswagen scored a respectable overall average of 77 in J.D Power’s consumer verified list. With “Great” ratings for both resale and dealership experience, Volkswagen’s after-sales service has been commendable.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

The Volkswagen Jetta was honored with the Ideal Vehicle Award in 2017 by the Automotive Research and Consulting Firm, Auto Pacific Inc. in the Compact Car Category for meeting the owner’s expectations and desires. The Jetta is easily maintainable with below-average repair costs. This is pretty evident from Edmund’s five-year cost to own costs table below.

The costs in the above table don’t feel like that of a German car and that definitely says a lot about its affordable ownership cost. On a yearly basis, fuel and maintenance costs are on the reasonable side, and depreciation costs really take a toll and that’s where this car shines from its competition. Even though the Volkswagen Jetta has package assistance maintenance, repair costs don’t cost much and are quite easily available.

Warranty

It’s a bit of shame that Volkswagen’ benevolent warranty scheme of 6-years/72,000 mile warranty is an offer in the past. For 2021 Volkswagen Jetta will offer the same Bumper-To-Bumper Limited Warranty and Carefree Maintenance Program.

Criteria

Period

Scheduled Carefree Maintenance

2 years/ 20,000 miles

Roadside Assistance

3 years/ 36,000 miles

New Vehicle Limited Warranty

4 years/ 50,000 miles

The Volkswagen Jetta loses out to some outstanding warranty figures fromKia andHyundai. Both have the same basic warranty scheme of 5 years/60000 miles. Both protect their drivetrain for 10 years or 100000 miles, alongside unlimited miles road assist or five years. These numbers put both the Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra above the competition.

Miles per Dollar

With much money getting lost due to depreciation, combined with Jetta’s more-than-average fuel consumption, the miles per dollar cost of the Jetta comes down to some $0.45 per mile. This is a derived number from the numbers that were accumulated over a period of five years, where the car was driven in varied conditions.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Buying Advice

When it comes to the decision making of the purchase of the Volkswagen Jetta trim the strong suggestion would be on the purchase of SE Version. Apart from the standard provision of the turbocharged engine, there are various other features such as heated seats in front and rear, panoramic sunroof, high tech accessories, and all kinds of safety features that a cozy sedan should have.

The 2017 and 2018 model of the Volkswagen Jetta received the status of top 10 compact sedans all around the world by Cars.com, Auto Pacific, and Car and Driver Blog. In the technicality aspect, Volkswagen Jetta is a highly decorated one and the standard 6-speed transmission proved to be suitable for driving.

Is buying a used Volkswagen Jetta a good idea?

Like its rival competitors, Volkswagen Jetta has good resale value in the market. Even though the depreciation cost will be having an impact on every car, the resale cost will be steady for the Jetta due to the features it offers. The maintenance cost of the vehicle is also comparatively low in the market, a positive aspect for Volkswagen Jetta to have heads up in the competition.

As per the total usage estimation of the car, the 2018 and 2019 model of the Volkswagen Jetta is perfect for resale due to the reason that the fitness issuance for Volkswagen is for 15 years.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Engine and Performance

6.4/10

Power of the 2021 Volkswagen Jetta comes from the same 1.4-liter Turbo Inline-4 that produces 147 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. There’s both automatic and manual 8-Speed transmission. It is perfectly tuned and mechanized for the four-wheel drive train, the Jetta has a very cushiony drive quality. The air suspension is on the softer side and manages to soak in most of the irregularities, keeping the road quality sublime. A power output of 147hp with peak torque of 184 lb-ft hitting as early as 1400 rpm makes it the quickest of the line.

However, the Honda Civic with more power gets more torque in the mid-range and that really pushes the vehicle forward the longer distance, especially in 0-60 figures and quarter-mile timings.

Even though the Volkswagen Jetta is fitted with the same engine specs and features, it is still in the play in the automobile market. It is the only one to offer an 8-speed automatic transmission while rivals offer CVT as standard. Jetta has the highest torque to rpm ration compared to it’s competition.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta: Acceleration and Braking Performance

The standard 1.4-liter Inline-4 with turbo allows the Volkswagen Jetta to shoot up 0-60 in just 7.7 seconds. The front-wheel drivetrain doesn’t slip much and manages to keep itself in line very well. Despite being the heaviest of the lot, the Jetta’s takes the least distance to come to a standstill from 60 mph.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Fuel Economy

7.0/10

With a standard engine,fuel consumption remains the same in all Jetta trims. The perfect balance between acceleration and mileage capacity, the Volkswagen Jetta mileage is on par with other competitors that have good fuel management, that can run up to 400 miles.

However, both theKia Forte andHyundai Elantra take the cake away with better mileage figures, that help them in the long run.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Interior

8.1/10

The Jetta’s interior has always been about form over function. This not only makes it simple in design, without much radical styling the interior feels comfortable as well as equally approachable to all age groups. Seventh-generation Jetta has increased in size and that has opened up a lot of leg and shoulder room. Five people might still be a stretch but four people can easily fit inside the cabin. Though the second-row might lack in some entertainment features, the front row is pretty sufficient in this regard. This year, the standard list on all Jetta trims has increased.

The base S trim gets most of the interior comfort and tech, and it doesn’t feel like a dull place at all. Speaking of trims, the S model comes with cloth seats while SE and higher trims get leatherette upholstery. SEL Premium comes equipped with genuine leather, ambient lighting, and ventilated front seats.

Both front and rear of the Volkswagen Jetta are pretty much sufficient as its compact workmanship is up to the size. But the Forte and Elantra offer the same interior space and have the same characteristics and contrast that are in par with the Jetta.

How is the 2021 Volkswagen Jetta Infotainment System?

As far as, premium features are concerned, the 2021 Jetta gets all the tech wizardry that should be in a 2021 vehicle. For starters, the digital gauge cluster has been borrowed from Audi and that really sets the tone. Base trims get a 6” infotainment touch screen while top of the trim gets an 8” screen.

All trims get USB Port, Rear View Camera System, Colour Touch screen sound system, AM/FM Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The SEL Premium Version trim also gets a wireless smartphone charger.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Exterior

5.0/10

The conservative approach towards the Jetta has worked for Volkswagen in the past and has continued to do so in the present. As far as the exterior design is concerned, the new hexagonal grille design gives the Jetta the necessary posh touch, enclosed by LED headlights on both sides. On the side, there’s a distinct attempt on VW‘s part to give the Jetta a coup-ish look. It might concur that the rear headroom is compromised, but on the contrary, it isn’t that bad.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan 

The Jetta also comes equipped with trendy features such as side mirrors with memory features, heated windshield washer nozzles, Rain-sensing windshield wipers, Rear Traffic Alert, Electromechanical Power Steering with variable assistance and Automatic high beam headlights, and so on.

9.0/10

When it comes to building quality, the MQB platform is known for its reliability and sturdy structure. From that angle, the 2021 Jetta will be a really dependable car. As far as safety features are concerned, the Volkswagen Jetta is hailed as the top safety car with various safety measures. Including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Light Assist, and more importantly Automatic Post Collision Braking System. 

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Competition

7.0/10

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Vs. Honda Civic

The Jetta even though having a powerful engine provides more mileage whereas the Honda Civic has a low top speed and braking performance. And Honda doesn’t provide upgrades like Volkswagen which from time to time provides updates in every release.

Honda Civic Sedan

But if as a product both are judged, while the Civic has a bit more involving drive, the Volkswagen Jetta is boring compared to that.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Vs. Hyundai Elantra

The Volkswagen Jetta and the Hyundai Elantra are both brothers in arms in the competition as both of them possess the same level of configuration in the building of the model.

Hyundai Elantra Sedan

But the only thing which differentiates these two is the high tech add up such as the digital cockpit high-end infotainment system highly decorates the Jetta from Elantra.

2021 Volkswagen Jetta Final Verdict

For car enthusiasts and daily car users, the Volkswagen Jetta is an opt choice owing to its decent performance and mileage. And moreover, with more features and low-cost prices, the 2021 Jetta is the right stop destination for people who are searching for an affordable and reliable sedan.

Pros - Apple carplay, manual transmission, planted ride quality

Cons - Noise inside the cabin, Seat color, flat black side mirrors with no turn signals

Overall Review

10 /10 Overall Rating

Manual transmission with low ride height and Volkswagen badge on the engine, sounds good to me. I never really find myself enjoying the driveability of suvs or cars with elevated ride heights for some reason. Jetta gives me what I would have asked for and feels planted to the road irrespective of speed on the speedo. Handles well on the corners, or should I say incredibly plush on hairpins too. Manual transmission on top of all this makes it altogether a better deal.

VW might not be doing great lately but when it comes to the performance of their cars, there aren't any significant flaws or scope for improvements one can point out. Not at least me. Drives glued to the road because of the ride height and can be called as on safety attribute

Pros - Responsive handling, Sports mode, Headlights

Overall Review

9 /10 Overall Rating

Maybe Jetta is not all about power but inclined towards the handling. I've been driving it for more than 5 months now and I think that's a fair amount of time to be able to make a judgement. Having said that, the acceleration is certainely not sluggish but out runned by the way it handles, easy and responsive. Maybe could have done better with a little more power under the hood given the mpg numbers are impressive. Sports mode is in place and actually does a pretty good job to be honest.
