The Jetta first joined the VW lineup upon its release roughly four and a half decades ago. Since that time, there have been a total of generations to be unveiled. The seventh and latest of these being released in 2018.

VW has designated the Jetta as their A model. This means the latest model is classed as the A7.

The Jetta has been offered as either a 4-door sedan or a 5-door station wagon. The latter body style was first offered during the fourth generation, which was released in 1999.

It has competed mainly with the likes of the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, and Honda Civic. It is also seen as the smaller version of the mid-size Volkswagen Passat.

VW has offered just four trim levels for the model over the years. These include some typical options found on other offerings from the German carmaker, including the base S, SE, R-Line, SEL, and SEL Premium.

Petrol options for the Jetta have typically come in options between a 1.2 L inline-4 and a 2.5 L inline-5. This changed with the release of the latest generation, which now offered only a 2.0 L inline-4.

Diesel options have also ranged between these sizes. There are a number of 1.6 L TDI inline-4s and 2.0 L TDI inline-4s. However, all diesel engines were discontinued after the sixth generation.

A number of transmissions were fitted to the model. The most basic of these are the 5-speed and 6-speed manual gearboxes. There were also a number of automatic options, including DSG, all ranging between 6-speed and 8-speed.

The latest generation of the Jetta received a modest facelift in 2021.
