2017 Volkswagen Jetta Review

The Jetta is filled with advanced technology, including Volkswagen Car-Net® App Connect. This powerful system brings maps, music and even text messaging from your smartphone to the in-vehicle touchscreen display. And what better way to listen to directions or music than through the available Fender® Premium Audio System?

This sound system packs 400 watts of power for concert-like sound delivered to every seating position. Pair that with the available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and you’ve got an entertainment package unrivaled by other sedans in its class.

But, some of the most impressive technology in the 2017 VW Jetta actually has to do with safety. These features include a rearview camera that can help you see behind you when backing in or out of a tight spot or the available blind spot monitor which can tell you when you’re about to change lanes if there’s another vehicle in your blind spot.

Jetta Performance Specifications

There’s something to be said about the four-corner independent suspension of the Volkswagen Jetta. This meticulously engineered suspension has been fine tuned to provide an exceptionally smooth ride while at the same time giving you more control of the road. Pair that with the effortless shifting of an available six-speed DSG® performance transmission system and you’ve got one of the smoothest rides on the road.

In addition to refined handling and response, the 2017 Jetta also makes the most out of every drop of fuel. With an EPA-estimated 40 mpg on the highway*, you can spend more time getting to your destination and less time filling up at the pump.

When it comes to engine power, you have three incredible satisfying options. The first is a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. This direct injection engine produces 150 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 1.8 turbo comes in with 170 horsepower and the 2.0 turbo has 210 horsepower.

Design Features

The fascia of the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta has been carefully designed to give the sedan a modern and clean look. The stylish fog lights not only improve visibility, they also help to round out the vehicle’s front end.

A power tilting/sliding sunroof is the perfect addition for drivers who like to let in a little bit of sunshine or additional ventilation. With just the push of a button, you can open up your cabin to the warm SoCal air. But you can still stay comfy even on the not-so-nice days, thanks to available dual-zone climate control.
