This sedan is brimming with comfort and style for a satisfying daily drive. Plus, it’s terrifically fuel-efficient and available now at Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati.
A comfortable commute that won’t empty your wallet
As car prices across the market continue to rise, Volkswagen aims to keep the Jetta affordable. Shoppers in Cincinnati on a budget will appreciate the low starting price of the 2024 Jetta at Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati: an MSRP around $22,000 for the base-level S model. You don’t have to pay extra for modern essentials like IQ.DRIVE assistance tools, LED headlamps, and App-Connect® smartphone integration.
In fact, three of the four Jetta trim levels have an MSRP below $25,000!  That means you can afford comfort upgrades like heated leatherette seats with lumbar support and automatic climate control without paying much more money. These soothing enhancements can turn your car into an oasis when you’re stuck in rush-hour traffic on I-75 or I-71.
Fun and fuel-efficient freedom
If you’re interested in owning a compact sedan like the 2024 Jetta, you care about gas mileage. Why buy a low-priced car that’s just going to empty your wallet by guzzling gas? VW engineers understand that efficiency matters to you, so they fine-tuned the motor on the front-wheel-drive 2024 Jetta for lean performance.
The four-cylinder engine uses a turbocharger and low displacement for less waste. The result is an average 29 mpg in downtown Cincinnati maneuvering and 42 mpg on highway drives along I-275 or I-471. Those rates with the sedan’s standard manual transmission, which also gives you the pleasure of total shifting control. Prefer to let the car do the work for you? The available eight-speed automatic is plenty responsive and smoothing changes gears.
Stressful Cincy drives made easier
A tremendous update to the latest Jetta release is the inclusion of IQ.DRIVE as standard on every 2024 model. Previously, you had to pay extra for useful driving tools like automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Now, this assistance suite comes included on every trim level. This helps make your daily commute in crowded Cincinnati traffic safer and less stressful, as you have the Jetta watching your surroundings for hazards, too.
The 2024 Jetta also simplifies your commute in Hamilton County by providing remote access to start the engine and unlock the doors using your smartphone app. Locate your last parked location when you head downtown for a football or baseball game. Find directions to a new Over-the-Rhine restaurant with the detailed map display on the VW Digital Cockpit. The 2024 VW Jetta even offers available wireless smartphone charging and hotspot capability so you’re always connected.
Impressively roomy for a compact sedan
As a commuter sedan, the 2024 Jetta prioritizes head, leg, and shoulder room for the driver and front passenger. Take your morning drive to the office or weekend romantic getaway with your partner in comfort. For being categorized as a compact car, the Jetta provides a generous 41.1 inches of legroom in the front row, which is as much as many crossovers and SUVs provide. Plus, the 14.1-cubic-foot trunk is spacious enough to hold your road trip luggage and souvenirs.
Legroom in the rear seats is limited, so the Jetta is better-suited for a baby seat rather than teenagers or your adult friends. If your family is growing, you can find larger vehicles like the Tiguan or Taos at Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati instead.
The VW Jetta is a rare breed in the automotive marketplace today: an economic sedan that values tradition. We know that some people still like driving a stick shift car and using physical knobs and dials for climate controls instead of all-digital systems. That’s why Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati invites you to test drive the 2024 Jetta at our dealership.

2023 Volkswagen Jetta
Volkswagen is a practical brand for practical shoppers who need a practical car for their daily drives. The VW Jetta is proof of this. The brand’s affordable compact sedan is designed to be a budget-friendly commuter car that keeps you comfortable even while stuck in Cincinnati traffic. Is the 2023 Volkswagen Jetta a smart purchase? We’ll show you what the Jetta offers and let you decide.
A cash-conserving commuter car
Fuel economy is a top priority of money-conscious drivers in metropolitan cities like Cincinnati. The 2023 Jetta’s powertrain is finely tuned to get more miles out of every gallon of gas. In stop-and-go suburban or downtown traffic, the 2023 Jetta averages 29 mpg. When you reach the I-71 or I-75 ramp, that rate increases to 42 mpg. Those fuel-sipping rates are remarkable for a traditional gas-powered, non-hybrid vehicle. Imagine how many dollars you’ll save on fill-ups over the years that you drive the 2023 Jetta to work.
Quick on its feet
The Jetta is no slouch when it comes to acceleration and sprightly weaving through traffic. Using a turbocharger and TSI® direct injection, the engine effortlessly churns out 184 lb-ft of torque. The XDS electronic differential system helps the front-wheel-drive Jetta keep its footing while rounding tight curves by compensating for the understeer.
The Jetta is one of the few cars in projection still offered with a manual transmission. If you can handle the stick, you’ll get a kick out of shifting this sedan. For the rest of us, the eight-speed automatic transmission will do the trick just as well.
Keeping you comfortable
The other aspect of commuting that drivers in Cincinnati care about is the in-vehicle experience. You want to be comfortable and entertained when roads are gridlocked at rush hour. The 2023 VW Jetta also delivers a satisfying experience in these ways, providing an array of pleasing in-car features.
Comfort is key here in the Queen City. Stay cozy whether it’s sweltering summer or frigid winter by using the available Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control, which keeps the cabin at a consistent temperature. The system’s air filtration keeps the breeze easy to breathe when Cincy smog is congesting the atmosphere.
Get comfortable even faster with optionally heated or ventilated front seats, plus a heated steering wheel. And lumbar support? Yes please! Such luxuries can make the daily grind far less grating.
Jamming for the entire drive
Rock out to your favorite tunes when you blast them through the Jetta sedan’s speakers. If you’re a true audiophile, you’ll want the available BeatsAudio® system for higher frequency range and improved bass.
The Jetta gives you a list of ways you can pick your music: plug into the USB-C port, scroll through SiriusXM® stations, use App-Connect to connect Apple or Android devices, or pair with Bluetooth. These included or optional capabilities can provide an immersive experience. Use the controls on the steering wheel to easily switch music tracks.
Driving made easier
We can’t forget about the driving assistance tools that come on the 2023 Volkswagen Jetta. These make routine commutes in Cincinnati less stressful (and less dangerous) when other drivers are being reckless. For example, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking come standard on every 2023 Jetta, and it will intercede to slow your momentum when another vehicle suddenly pulls in front of you. Blind Spot Monitor alerts you when a speeding driver is quickly approaching from the sides.
See how satisfying even a mundane drive can be when you’re behind the wheel of the 2023 Volkswagen Jetta. Come and test-drive it here at Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati. We’ll work with you to finance your ride so you can take it home.
