 What’s New for the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta?

When it comes to quick and quicker, Volkswagen has engine choices that really measure up. The base Jetta engine is a turbo four-cylinder. While it has 150 horsepower, it’s the 184 lb.-ft. of torque that really gets things moving. Top fuel economy is 38 mpg highway with the automatic and 40 mpg highway with the manual. The SEL turbo kicks out 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired only with a six-speed automatic, fuel economy is 35 mpg highway. Jetta GLI editions also have a turbo. This one cranks out 210 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque. GLI drivers will appreciate a sport-tuned suspension and upgraded brakes. Shoppers choose between a six-speed manual and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. Even with its speedy nature, the Jetta GLI earns up to 33 mpg highway.

With 109 cu. ft. of passenger space, the Jetta has one of the larger cabins in its class. This keeps everyone more comfortable. The driver also gets a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel in addition to an adjustable seat. The 60/40-split rear seats allow you to expand the trunk for more cargo space. You only have to step up to the SE to get heated front seats and attractive leatherette upholstery. This edition also has push button start and a sunroof. If you prefer, you can enjoy the sports seats on the GLI edition. The SEL editions have a power driver’s seat, dual-zone temperature control, and a cooled glovebox.

The base edition of the Jetta sets you up with plenty of dash tech. The touchscreen is connected to Bluetooth streaming audio features, a CD player and a USB port. You also get a rearview camera and an auxiliary audio jack. You can step up to a larger touchscreen with HD radio. This system also includes Car-Net App-Connect to give you fast access to the apps you use most. SEL drivers enjoy built-in navigation and more speakers. GLI editions pick up a nine-speaker Fender audio system.

Active head restraints and six airbags have proven their worth in extensive testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta has a five-star rating, the highest possible. Keeping you safe in reverse, a rearview camera is standard, and SE editions add a rear cross-traffic alert. SE buyers also get a blind spot monitor and VW’s Car-Net telematics system with automatic crash notification. SEL editions have automatic emergency braking to supplement a forward collision warning. In a brake test by Edmunds, the auto critic noted that braking times are better than average for the Jetta’s class. Exterior safety standards include fog lights and heated side mirrors, improving visibility in bad weather conditions. Heated washer nozzles and rain-sensing wipers are offered on higher editions.
