October 7th, 2016 by

2017 Volkswagen Jetta
The Volkswagen model line is one that’s known for reliability and high standards of performance across all of its vehicles. This commitment is especially shown in the Jetta, one of the most popular and iconic sedans of all time. It comes packed with some handy new features and upgrades for 2017, and our team here at Owens Murphy Volkswagen will take you through them!

2017 Volkswagen Jetta performance abilities

As soon as you put the 2017 Jetta’s pedal to the floor, don’t be surprised at the added kick of adrenaline you’ll get. That’s just the turbo engines being shifted through Volkswagen’s 6-speed DSG® performance transmission, and moving you with high-tuned precision through the Jetta’s 4-corner independent suspension. Speaking of the new Jetta engines, let’s take a look at them!

Engine Size Horsepower Torque Output Highway MPG
1.4 L Turbo 150 184 40
1.8 L Turbo 170 184 35
2.0 L Turbo 210 207 33

Be advised, though, that if you’re brave enough to take on the 2.0 L turbo engine, you’ll want to get your Jetta premium-grade fuel. Not only does it greatly improve performance and fuel efficiency, but filling up with 91 octane gas makes you look sweet.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta available technology

2017 Volkswagen JettaThe 2017 Jetta comes standard with Volkswagen’s Car-Net infotainment system, which allows you to stream media, navigate, and communicate with all your friends hands-free when you connect a compatible phone to the system. You can hear all of this crystal-clear because of the Fender Premium Audio also standard on the 2017 Jetta! Shamelessly jamming to Frank Ocean’s new album isn’t the only thing the Jetta’s technology allows you to do though. Let’s check out some of its other innovations, which have helped the Jetta receive a 5-star NHTSA crash test rating!
