2017 Volkswagen Jetta Staten Island, NY
Island Volkswagen proudly present the 2017 VW Jetta. The Jetta offers an agile suspension and a range of powertrains at a price that won’t break the bank, and with room for three adults in back. The interior design is modern and offers a choice of 5.0- or 6.3-inch touchscreen infotainment systems. The base engine is a 150-hp 1.4-liter turbo four; a 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four is optional. Five- or six-speed manuals and a six-speed automatic are available. The GLI is the hot rod, with a 210-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four and a sport suspension.
While the Golf hatchback may be more important to Volkswagen’s global fortunes, America’s love for sedans means that the Jetta is the best-selling VW in the United States. Previous Jettas were essentially Golfs with trunks, but the current Jetta introduced in 2011 was engineered specifically for America, meaning it doesn’t share its platform with the current Golf. (That will change for the next generation.) Although this sixth-generation Jetta was criticized upon its debut for a cheap interior and lackluster dynamics, several updates since then—to its powertrains, interior materials, and chassis—make for a much improved car that’s among the more competitive sedans in its segment.
2016 saw several technology updates for the Jetta, as Volkswagen rolled out its new infotainment system (complete with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capabilities) to most models in its lineup. A new base engine came onboard as well, with a more powerful 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder replacing the previous, and woefully dated, naturally aspirated 2.0-liter inline-four on S and SE trims. Also coming soon for the 2017 Jetta is a bit of trim-level reshuffling and some extra standard equipment, including a backup camera, for the base S trim level. The TDI diesel model is absent from the Jetta range, as the stop-sale on all Volkswagen 2.0-liter turbo-diesel remains in effect.
