When it comes to safety, the 2017 Jetta was designed with one thing in mind - you. This sedan was created to protect each and every individual that decides to sit behind the driver’s wheel or as a passenger in the car. Seamless laser welding is used to create a stiff and rigid body with high-strength steel in order to increase the overall protection the vehicle provides from the outside in. Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash Response System will shut off the fuel pump, unlock the doors and switch on the hazard lights if the vehicle is involved in a crash that makes the airbags deploy.

Driver assistance systems are standard starting on the 2017 Jetta SE model. The SE trim comes with a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert. This feature helps drivers stay safer on the roadways by providing alerts of unseen vehicles. Starting with the SEL trim, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking are all standard equipment. These features are designed to increase the awareness of the vehicle by providing help in situations that may otherwise be out of the driver’s control.

Although the Jetta falls into the compact sedan segment, the cabin is quite spacious. Rear seat passengers will have more than 38 inches to stretch out their legs. There is 15.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, which can be increased with the standard 60/40-split rear seatback. It also includes a pass-through to the trunk for longer items.
