Benefits of Driving a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan

In 2011, Volkswagen revised the Jetta's packaging to better compete with the Honda Civic, MAZDA3 and Toyota Corolla. Previously, price kept it just out of reach of potential buyers of the competition, but with an attractive redesign, Volkswagen also reconsidered options packaging and the Jetta's price level. They've done so again for 2013 and now buyers can get a premium German sedan at an entry-level price, with fit and finish similar to that on cars that cost two and three times as much.

What's new for 2013?

Following a redesign in 2011, the Jetta sedan sees several changes for 2013. For starters, a hybrid model joins the lineup, due out later in the model year. Volkswagen claims it will return close to 45 mpg on the highway. Across the rest of the Jetta lineup, many interior appointments and options get reshuffled and updated.

Model Strengths

  • Affordability
  • excellent fit and finish
  • good handling and braking
  • fuel economy on TDI hybrid models

Model Review

Volkswagen last redesigned the popular Jetta for 2011, and with some well-timed updates and upgrades, the sedan enters 2013 better than ever. The sixth-generation sedan features larger dimensions inside and out and there's plenty more to like.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
