How Far Can I Go in the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta?

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Fuel Economy and Driving Range

Although Volkswagen is hard at work designing and producing a new fleet of all-electric cars for the future, currently they don’t have any 2018 hybrid models for sale, at least in America. There is the electric e-Golf available, but that model does not yet have a 2018 model released. That means the current 2018 VW model that has the best fuel economy and is also available for American drivers, is the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta!

2018 Volkswagen Jetta Fuel Efficiency

Starting at an MSRP of $18,645, the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta has a 1.4L inline 4 engine as its baseline engine option. Combined with a sleek frame wrought from the German engineering of the Volkswagen company, this creates a sleek combined fuel economy of 33 MPG for the 2018 VW Jetta. For clarification, that is a combined and estimated balance of 28 MPG for city driving and 40 MPG for highway driving.

Beyond efficiency, however, a car still needs practicality. A good fuel economy is worthless if a vehicle doesn’t have a good amount of power or a sizeable fuel tank that allows for a decent range of travel. Fear not, for the 2018 VW Jetta does not disappoint in those categories either. The 2018 VW Jetta’s 1.4L inline 4 engine produces 150 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque to power its lightweight frame. Additionally, with 14.5 gallon fuel tank, this gives the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta driving range of 406 to 580 miles on a full tank of gas.
