College in Southern California is unlike anywhere else in the country. Sure we work hard (if not a little bit harder). But with incredible beaches, fine dining, exciting music venues and more all within driving distance, there’s a lot to learn, explore and experience both in and out of the classroom.

To help students from across the Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita and Newport Beach area get the most out of their college careers, you’ll need a car that can handle every new adventure that comes your way. In this post, we explore why the 2016 VW Jetta is the perfect sedan for college students, and even for the years after graduation.

1. Technology that Makes you a Better Student & Socialite

With available Car-Net® App-Connect, you’re 2016 Volkswagen Jetta is a college-tuned multitasking machine. Maps and turn by turn navigation can help you find that secret taco place with the $2 margaritas or the fastest route to class from anywhere in the city. While you’re on your way, crank your favorite tunes using Apple CarPlay or stream an audio book so you can easily keep up with homework for your Intro to World Lit class.

2. Safety Features That Can Save You $$$

The 2016 Volkswagen Jetta is packed full of incredible safety features like available lane departure warning and blind spot monitor. In fact, the sedan was even named a 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. But your life isn’t the only thing safety technology can help save.

Take the standard rearview camera for example. This simple piece of technology makes it easier to back in or out of parking spaces (especially in a crowded university parking lot). Less dings, dents and scratches means less repairs and more money for your spring break vacation fund.

3. Keep Your Possessions Secure

Not only does the available VW Car-Net® Security & Service help you locate where you parked your Jetta, you can even see if you remembered to lock your doors. If you didn’t, simply use your smartphone app to secure everything inside the vehicle.

4. Excellent Fuel Economy

The 2016 Volkswagen Jetta makes it easy to take care of the environment and your wallet, thanks to an impressively fuel-efficient system. Featuring a 28/39 mpg city/highway fuel economy* for models equipped with the base engine and an automatic transmission, the VW Jetta offers exceptional peace of mind.

5. From Freshman Year to Your New Career

One of the biggest benefits of the VW Jetta and its timeless design is that you’ll be proud to park this car in university parking lots or at your first job out of college. Unlike other, more dated models, the 2016 Jetta emits a youthful energy while holding onto a sense of professionalism and achievement. No matter which trim level you choose, you’ll see it in the bold and dramatic lines of the sedan’s exterior, or the sporty, driver-focused curves of the dashboard.
