Volkswagen Jetta Named Great Car for Recent College Grads

Volkswagen Jetta Named Great Car for Recent College Grads | Lewisville, TX

The Volkswagen Jetta was named among Autotrader’s top 10 Great Cars for Recent College Graduates, further establishing the popular sedan as an excellent, budget-friendly daily driver.

According to Autotrader, a car must offer stylish looks and high-tech features to appear on its annual list. It also must be affordable and have a combined fuel economy of at least 30 mpg — something the Jetta manages easily. The 2021 model, for example, gets up to 41 mpg on the highway.*

The publication specifically recommended the Jetta from model years 2016 to 2018, which are nearly as efficient. “The 2016 model year is a good spot to begin your search because that’s when the Jetta got a standard touch-screen infotainment system and USB port plus a new turbocharged base engine,” explained the Autotrader editors.

Certainly, the Jetta is a great introduction to any buyer to the Volkswagen brand. It has lively handling characteristics and a spacious cabin and trunk that belie its compact dimensions. When you’ve just graduated from college and need an affordable car to drive to work, it’s tough to beat a used Jetta.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Named Family Car of the Year

Volkswagen Atlas Named Family Car Of The Year | Lewsiville, TX

In January 2020, Cars.com named the new Volkswagen Atlas the Family Car of the Year. Several factors determine the winner of this award, including passenger and cargo space, safety features, and crash test ratings.

The editor-in-chief of Cars.com, Jenni Newman, said of the Atlas, “The three-row SUV has a cavernous interior that can easily handle hauling kids and their car seats, and unlike many of its competitors, the Atlas has a third row that’s roomy enough for taller teens or adults. It also sports a sizable cargo area, meaning families don’t have to choose between carrying people or their stuff.”

For families in the market for a new vehicle, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas is an excellent contender. The Atlas provides comfortable seating for as many as seven passengers, and has plenty of room for car seats and cargo.
