2020 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Overview
From its sporty looks to its efficiently powerful performance to its comfortably appointed interior there are lots of reasons to buy a Volkswagen Jetta. Over seventeen million of them apparently because that’s how many Jettas have been bought so far. Choose from five models starting with the S and moving through the exclusive SEL Premium. The Jetta’s longer wheelbase and wider track give it more interior space so the first thing you notice when you get in is how nice and roomy it is. And if it’s dark how pleasant the available ambient lighting is. Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to bring your smartphone apps to a touchscreen display. And with the available Volkswagen Digital Cockpit you can get your driver information from the future. Other available high-tech features include Adaptive Cruise Control that works in stop-and-go traffic Blind Spot Monitor Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and more. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories4 and build a Jetta that’s all yours. The Volkswagen Jetta. It’s a best-seller.
Technology
The Volkswagen Jetta is loaded with technology. Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability to bring your smartphone apps to a touchscreen display and Car-Net Remote Access turns your smartphone into a remote control for your Jetta. If you ever noticed it was raining and wondered if you rolled up your car windows or if you ever boarded a plane and remembered you forgot to lock your car doors well now you can fix it with your smartphone. The Volkswagen Jetta. There’s a reason it’s a best-seller.
Safety
Why was the Volkswagen Jetta awarded a Five-Star Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration? Well start with six airbags front and rear crumple zones and a rigid safety cage. Add available Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking so you can avoid collisions in the first place. Then there’s the available Blind Spot Monitor that helps you change lanes more safely. And the first time the available Rear Traffic Alert saves you from getting hit you’ll never want to back out of a driveway or parking spot without it again. The Volkswagen Jetta. Forty years of safer driving.
Performance
The Volkswagen Jetta combines power and efficiency into one fun-to-drive package. It starts with a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is available to keep the engine revving in its sweet spot—plus it comes with an engine stop/start system that bumps gas mileage up from fantastic to Holy Cow I Can Go That Far on a Gallon of Gas? And for those of us who like a little hot sauce the Jetta R-Line features sporty styling and an XDS electronic limited-slip differential. The Volkswagen Jetta. Forty years of driving fun.
