2017 Volkswagen Jetta West Chester PA
When it comes to compact cars, does it get much better than the Jetta? This model is a standout in its segment simply because it offers excellent quality and comfort. The styling is understated, giving it a refined appearance in a world of wannabe sports cars. Those who have been waiting to learn more about the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta availability in West Chester PA have come to the right place, as we have details about what will be changing and what will stay the same for this compact car.
The VW Jetta was last redesigned in 2011, so it isn’t quite up for any major changes. Last year brought a new base engine, the 1.4-liter turbo 4-cylinder, and it remains the standard option to start out the model. This year things are less complicated, as the Jetta is losing two trims: The Hybrid and Sport. Though some are likely to be sad to see these options go, it does create a less complex trim hierarchy with just the S, SE, SEL and GLI from which to choose, with the GLI also cutting a trim.
There are a few standard features that are added to the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta to create more value. The base S trim will include larger 16-inch wheels, a standard rearview camera, LED Daytime Running Lights and two-tone cloth upholstery, in addition to Bluetooth, cruise control and touchscreen sound.
There are three turbocharged engines available for the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta, with the base option being a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder option that delivers 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A 170-horsepower 1.8-liter and a 210-horsepower 2.0-liter are also available on higher trims.
A slim car is nice when it comes to maneuverability, but not so nice when you can’t comfortably fit into the driver’s seat. Passenger volume sits at 94.1 cubic feet, which is slightly more than the Golf, though the sedan body style can’t compete with the hatchback, offering 15.1 cubic feet of available cargo space.
New Driver Assistance options in the 2017 VW Jetta
Times are changing, and things that were previously considered optional features are now expectations for many drivers. Bluetooth and cruise control are things people no longer expect to do without, and the prediction in the automotive world is that driver assistance features will someday be the new norm. Volkswagen is heading this change for increased active safety by offering more of these functions at lower trims.
The SE trim, which falls in the middle for the 2017 Jetta, will have Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert to help make merging easier than ever. Other features include the VW Car-Net connectivity package, a sunroof, LED DRLs, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and V-Tex leatherette seating with rear pass-through.
Higher trims will also see an increase in features, with the SEL gaining dual-zone climate control, Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking.
