Volkswagen brought back their compact car classic with their all-new 2017 Jetta and needless to say, we’re impressed! The Jetta has remained a best seller in the compact car class for being one of the only German cars in its price range and category. The Jetta doesn’t only boast as one of the top performers in its class, it also holds some stunning numbers with its efficiency. As an example, the base trim level 1.4L turbo engine receives up to 28 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway! Completed with the latest in technology, even the base trim offers a touch screen infotainment display and a rearview camera system. In agreement with the manufacturer itself, the standard trim of the Jetta is anything but basic.
This Jetta has remained in the same model generation since 2011, keeping the celebrated body style while upgrading core technologies and performance features. Whether you are a commuting champion or a true performance seeker, the 2017 Jetta supports high levels of driver and passenger satisfaction. The Jetta has taken a step up in comfort with a luxurious interior, offering several upgrade trims and technology packages to surpass the demands of almost any driver. Stock with over 150 horsepower and 184 lb/ft of torque, this compact sedan has some of the highest performance in its class.
The exterior of the 2017 Jetta screams style. With LED daytime running lights, a downslope hood, and a sporty angular grill the Jetta carries the personality of a premium German sedan. The aggressive front end of the Jetta is complemented by the rounded taillights and soft door side contour. New for the 2017 VW Jetta is the cool White Silver paint finish, something you’ll need to see to understand. Standard on the SE level trim is the popular keyless entry and 16″ black and silver alloy wheels. The Jetta SE also comes equipped with a blind spot monitor, V-Tex leatherette seating, heated front seats, and push-button start! If you think all of that is impressive, so did we.. until we reviewed the even more advanced SEL and GLI trim levels.
While sporting a very style-conscious look, the 2017 VW Jetta is full of the latest in safety technology. With heated exterior mirrors, rearview cameras, and blind-spot detection, the 2017 Jetta offers maximum visibility for both the freeway and the neighborhood. Additional safety features from the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta include 4-wheel ABS, electronic stability control, auto-leveling headlights, brake assist, and more. For those of us that live in colder climates, the Jetta’s traction control and front-wheel drive leave any driver confident in wet road conditions.
