New 2017 Volkswagen Jetta at Coachella Valley Volkswagen for Palm Desert, CA

The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta seamlessly integrates technology into its agile design to create one solid, futuristic experience. There are three engines to pick from and a strut-type suspension to give the Jetta a subtly powerful feel. As you go up in trim, there are more and more features to unlock but even at the base level, there is plenty to see.

Under the Jetta's Hood

The 2017 VW Jetta can come equipped with one of three engines. At the entry level there is a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that is capable of generating 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A front-wheel drive system and five-speed manual transmission come paired with this engine, while a six-speed automatic transmission is available. Standard on the SEL trim level is the turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission comes standard with this engine. The GLI trim level comes with the most powerful engine; the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine can produce 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. This can come with the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. An anti-roll bar, a strut-type front suspension, coil springs, and telescopic dampers all come together to give the Jetta agile and smooth handling.

Design of Volkswagen Jetta

The 2017 VW Jetta has a sleek, futuristic feel that is complimented by its use of several high-tech and modern features. These features are well-integrated into the design to help create one seamless experience. The entry-level trims come equipped with many nice features including cruise control, a multifunction steering wheel, power locks, and a rearview camera. At higher trims, even more technology is included. A great example of this is the MIB II infotainment system with a 6.3-inch touchscreen display. The touchscreen is equipped with a capacitive touch sensor which makes it capable of understanding gesture controls, something that the more common resistive touchscreens are incapable of doing. This touchscreen offers the driver access to the VW Car-Net system. The technology isn't the only pleasant aspect of the Jetta's design, however. All passengers will enjoy the large amount of legroom which will make road trips with a full house much more comfortable. The trunk offers 15.7 cubic feet of storage space but if more is necessary, the back seat folds down and can feature a pass-through.

What kind of infotainment system does the Jetta come with?

The technological integration doesn't end with the comfort elements of the cabin. There are many high-tech advanced safety features available on the VW Jetta, even at the entry level. The standard equipment includes traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, front airbags, antilock disc brakes, and a rearview camera. Higher trim levels get to enjoy even more standard safety features including more integrated, technological features. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking are all standard offerings at some trim levels. The Car-Net telematics system is available on most models and consolidates safety information and puts it all in one easily accessible location. With this system the driver has access to features like roadside assistance, remote vehicle access, and automatic crash notification. It also comes with a geo-fencing tool which can help parents limit the distance their teenage driver can travel. Volkswagen's smartphone app allows the driver to access all of these tools remotely as well.
