The 2017 VW Jetta: A Compact with a Premium Feel

The Jetta is the best-selling car in the Volkswagen lineup and for good reason. The 2017 VW Jetta has good fuel economy, plenty of legroom for the rear passengers, and safety ratings that will give you peace of mind. With four trim levels to choose from, you should have no problem finding the Jetta model that works for you, whether you want to get the most budget-friendly model, load up on features, or go turbocharged.

2017 VW Jetta Exterior Features

The Volkswagen Jetta stands out from other models in its class, with a design that makes you excited about getting behind the wheel. Details like the well-designed fog lights make the front end of this sedan look even sleeker. The LED Daytime Running Lights do the same thing while adding plenty of style.

Add the power sunroof that slides and tilts to enjoy natural light or a nice breeze no matter where you go in your Jetta. Modern technology like Keyless Access adds plenty of convenience to the 2017 Jetta by letting you lock or unlock your car while your keys are still in your pocket. To deliver a premium feel, the 2017 VW Jetta comes standard with heated power side mirrors that help clear up fog and snow.

2017 Jetta Interior Features

Sitting inside the Jetta has never been more comfortable regardless of whether you are in the front or rear row. Available Climatronic dual-zone automatic climate control makes it easier to agree on a temperature, as no compromises are needed. There are also available heated seats with three different settings so that you can choose how much additional heat you need. If preferred you can choose a Jetta with the sporty seats that provide support in the most important areas, cradling you perfectly on turns.

Volkswagen made sure to think of the driver when designing the cabin. This is why you can control everything, including music, on the multi-function flat-bottomed steering wheel. If you opt for Keyless Access, you will get push button start, letting you start the Jetta with a simple step while your keys are safely tucked away.

VW Jetta Performance

Many drivers are initially drawn in by the Jetta’s fuel economy, as it can get up to 40 mpg* on the highway. The 2017 Jetta’s four-corner independent suspension works hard to keep you in control at all times, while delivering a smooth ride. If you want, you can also configure this VW to use a DSG performance transmission for seamless acceleration and gear changes that are so quick they are hard to perceive.

Speaking of configurations, there are three engines depending on the Volkswagen Jetta trim that you choose. The base 1.4-liter turbo is the engine with 40 mpg* on the highway and 28 mpg* in the city. This engine produces 150 horsepower. Upgrading to the 1.8-liter turbocharged engine gives you 170 horsepower, with a still impressive 35 mpg* on the highway. If you want more power, the 2.0-liter turbo has 210 horsepower and a rating of 33 mpg* for highway driving.
