The first car that comes to mind when you think of Volkswagen might be the sporty Beetle or the old reliable VW van. Volkswagen has come a long way in providing state-of-the-art luxury since those vehicles. The high standard in safety and reliability, however, has remained the same.
Now Volkswagen offers a wide range of vehicles like sedans, SUVs, crossovers, and sporty hatchbacks. The Volkswagen Jetta is a compact sedan that is perfectly suited for small families or someone looking for the comfort of a sedan but still wants something on the smaller side. Here is everything you need to know about the Jetta.
Engine and Performance
The Volkswagen Jetta 4 cylinder, 1.4 Liter Turbocharged engine provides a steady 147 horsepower that gives you plenty of force for daily driving. It also provides a smooth and quiet ride with effortless steering. The Jetta comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission for those who like to take the gear shifting in hand, but you can also opt for the 8-speed automatic transmission if you prefer.
One of the most attractive features of the Jetta is its frugal fuel economy. This reliable car has an EPA estimated 30 miles per gallon in the city and at least 41 mpg on the highway. Real-world tests have shown results on the highway of up to 43 miles per gallon.
As gas prices continue to fluctuate, having a car that saves you money at the pump is a huge plus!
The state-of-the-art technology that can be loaded onto your Jetta brings the sedan experience into the future. The digital touchscreen display can show your speed, route guidance, or whatever you prefer. App-connect also allows you to connect the apps on your phone so that they will appear on the display.
Another fantastic feature is the Volkswagen Car-Net that comes with a mobile app. Depending on how you equip your Jetta, you can activate remote start, lock and unlock the doors, and even honk the horn through the app.
The interior of the Jetta is quite roomy for a small sedan. Customizable interior lighting can provide ambient lighting at night and an optional panoramic sunroof can keep things bright and sunny during the day.
Safety is where the Jetta, and Volkswagens in general, really stand out. The Jetta can come equipped with crucial safety measures that give you peace of mind knowing you are driving a safe car.
The safety rearview camera allows you to see any obstacles that may be in your way as you reverse. This vehicle also has front and rear crumple zones for a crash and a sturdy safety cage that directs forces away from the driver and passengers.
The ICRS (Intelligent Crash Response System), takes charge after an accident that deploys the airbags in case the driver is unable. It can unlock doors, shut off the fuel pump, and activate the hazard lights.
The base MSRP for the Jetta is $18,995 with the SE line starting at $22,895. All prices depending on the available options you choose. A Volkswagen dealership can help you find the perfect Jetta for you.
