Volkswagen Jetta Model Years

, Senior Automotive Editor -

Volkswagen used a simple formula when it created the Jetta in 1980: Add a trunk to the Rabbit. The sedan was aimed squarely at American buyers, who have never loved hatchbacks as much as Europeans do. The formula worked, and the Jetta has proven to be much more popular than Rabbit and Golf hatchbacks in Volkswagen’s US lineup.

The Jetta continues to offer a German-designed counterpoint to Japanese rivals, and at more competitive prices after a sixth-generation redesign in 2011.
