Volkswagen Jetta Technology

CarandDriver.com remarked that the new Jetta is “a vehicle that seems to push technology to the forefront, with a cockpit that outshines even its pricier platform-mates. The standard 6.5-inch center touchscreen in the Jetta is integrated into the binnacle and canted toward the driver, offering exceptional ergonomics. And with the available 8.0-inch screen and Digital Cockpit taking over the instrument panel, the Jetta’s striking dashboard looks like it could have been lifted from an Audi.”

Interior Styling and Features

Impressed with the Jetta interior, the Editor at Kelley Blue Book stated that the, “Interior room is impressive for a compact car, and matches or nearly matches that of the lauded Honda Civic. Basic cloth covers the interior of S trims. SE, R-Line and SEL trims get V-Tex leatherette, and the topline SEL Premium has real leather. At 14.1 cubic feet, the trunk is impressively large. Furthermore, standard 60/40-split rear seats add cargo-carrying practicality.”

Exterior Design

More spacious than previous models, Edmunds points out, “The new Jetta is slightly longer, wider and taller than the outgoing model, with a longer wheelbase and shorter overhangs. The exterior styling is more distinctive, with sharp character lines, a larger grille, and a much larger presence on the road.”
