Interior Features of the 2017 VW Jetta

The 2017 Jetta offers a spacious interior with an impressive amount of rear legroom. The gently arching roofline ensures there is more than enough headroom for rear passengers. In addition, there is more than 15 cubic feet of usable trunk space. By folding the 60/40 split rear seat back, trunk space can be increased even more. In addition, the rear seatback features a pass-through to accommodate larger cargo items and equipment.

Instrument gauges are clustered in a chrome gauge and feature a tunnel design. Options features based on the selected trim include ambient lighting, chrome accents, and interior piano black accents. Even on the entry-level models, consumers can enjoy an array of equipment features, including standard air conditioning, cruise control, a multifunction steering wheel, power locks with remote keyless entry, one-touch auto up/down power windows, and a rearview camera.

The updated 2017 Jetta also offers a number of premium features on the various trim levels, including a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, a 6-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, a soft-touch dashboard, and a sunroof.

2017 VW Jetta Exterior Features

The new Jetta design features precise, clear lines along with a muscular surface to create a sense of timeless elegance in this popular sedan. Along the front, the design is defined by the use of horizontal lines and a coupe-like incline. Three cross fins are featured on the radiator grille, while the daytime running lights offer a distinctive signature due to the LEDs being arranged in an L-shaped formation around the headlamps. The headlight clusters and radiator grille form a visual band to give this vehicle a more substantial appearance. Fog lights mounted on the outer area of the bumper finish off this look on the SEL and GLI trims.

The radiator grille on the 1.8T models feature a closeable shutter, which helps improve aerodynamics as well as fuel efficiency while providing the engine with greater thermal control. The engine is able to reach its operating temp faster by keeping the shutter closed while the vehicle is warming up. The shutter is then opened and closed automatically on an as-needed basis.

In the rear, the 2017 Jetta is equipped with a trunk lid featuring an aerodynamic trailing edge designed to line up with the vehicle’s silhouette, thereby extending the rear fenders in an elegant line. Just below the trunk lid, the Volkswagen logo is situated, flanked by LED taillights that are available as an option on the GLI trim. Consumers seeking a bolder look will find that the GLI offers just that with an aggressive fascia on the front that is integrated with fog lights and a honeycomb grille, in addition to a rear bumper design that incorporates a standard rear spoiler and diffuser. For 2017, the GLI models feature 18-inch Mallory design aluminum-alloy wheels outfitted with standard all-season tires.

Performance of the 2017 VW Jetta

For 2017, VW has stepped up the game with the inclusion of a 1.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine for the Jetta S and SE, capable of producing 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Both the 5-speed manual transmission and 6-speed automatic transmission get impressive fuel economy. Come into the dealership and learn more from our experts!
