2023 Volkswagen Jetta Compared to the 2022 VW Jetta

When it comes to a dependable sedan for everyday Northern Colorado driving needs, the 2023 Volkswagen Jetta is a standout option. There is a reason that throughout its lifecycle, the Jetta has been a go-to choice for those looking for an accessible and efficient vehicle. The 2022 version of the sedan received a fairly considerable overhaul from its previous iteration. As such, the 2023 Jetta enters the Northern Colorado market with minimal changes to help keep the ride for interested customers as consistent as possible.  


One carried-over upgrade that was made in the 2022 model year Jetta was the improvement to the base engine in the sedan. The energetic turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine the Volkswagen is equipped with delivers a vibrant 158 horsepower with every press of the gas pedal. The engine is paired with either a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available eight-speed automatic transmission to meet whatever performance needs a driver has. Reliable FWD handling comes back as the sole drivetrain for the 2023 Jetta as well. Even the EPA-estimated 31 MPG city/41 MPG highway fuel economy from the 2022 version of the Jetta is maintained in the 2023 model year sedan.  

Exterior & Interior Features

To help interested customers differentiate the 2023 model year Jetta from its previous counterpart, the exterior has been given moderate visual changes. Otherwise, the modern sedan keeps all the excellent features that made the 2022 iteration of the Jetta such a great choice for a sedan that is easily accessible for a variety of Northern Colorado drivers. However, the SE trim level of the 2023 VW Jetta receives standard remote start for added convenience. Standard and available infotainment and comfort amenities are carried over as well. A wireless smartphone charging pad and climate-controlled front seats are just some of the ways a customer can fully customize the cabin of their Jetta. Standard infotainment technology includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth® connectivity for compatible smartphones. Through VW Car-Net® services, the sedan brings back a standard Wi-Fi® hotspot as well.  

Safety Features 

Driver-assistance technology in the 2023 Jetta is directly carried over from the 2022 version of the sedan for consistency. Front Assist is one such returning system that is a combination of Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking. This helps keep the road in front of the vehicle thoroughly protected for drivers. The road behind the sedan is also easily monitored thanks to the combination of Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert systems. Available Adaptive Cruise Control elevates the 2023 Jetta into the same excellent vacation sedan that the 2022 Jetta was with this system equipped.
