The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta isn’t all prance and no punch, the engine lineup in the Jetta offers power and performance all while saving you money at the gas pump.

Engine Efficiency & Performance
The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta offers three engine options that all deliver plenty of performance and extreme efficiency. To start, the 1.4L turbocharged direct injection engine posts 150 horsepower and still averages 40 MPG on the highway, that’s enough giddy-up to get you past that semi on the highway with just a slight step on the accelerator. The 1.8L turbocharged engine rips out 170 horsepower and gets 35 MPG on the highway, this lightweight engine increases horsepower without sacrificing too much efficiency. Finally, the 2.0L turbocharged engine jumps off the line with 210 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque and retains 33 MPG while driving on the highway. An available 6-speed DSG performance transmission optimizes all that power under the hood with seamless shifting and acute acceleration. The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta’s 4-corner independent suspension keeps you in complete control around corners and on less than perfect road conditions. Sleek body lines roll over the 17” 5-spoke alloy wheels of the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta giving the ultra-safe Jetta a sporty profile.
Safety comes in spades, it is what Volkswagen is known for, and the 2017 Jetta has been awarded a 5-star safety rating by the NHTSA and dubbed a “Top Safety Pick” by the IIHS. High-strength steel construction and a rigid safety cage highlight the structural safety features. An automatic post-collision braking system and intelligent crash response system are there to protect in case of an accident and are always on alert. The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta is an excellent, efficient and safe vehicle that has more than enough under the hood to impress all car shoppers.
