2017 Volkswagen Jetta Glendale CA
Why do so many compact cars have to feel like a compromise? Just because you don’t require much space, it doesn’t mean that you don’t want a high-quality vehicle. That’s where the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta comes in for Glendale CA shoppers. Los Angeles is well-known for its traffic, which means our residents can feel like commuters even if they don’t drive many miles each day. You’ll want a vehicle that is comfortable and outfitted with plenty of features to make those traffic jams tolerable.
Volkswagen has earned a reputation for having plushy interiors, and this is best seen when looking at the most affordable vehicles. When it comes to quality, the Jetta provides the right balance of soft-touch, well-fitted materials to provide a comfortable feel that is nicer than the hard plastic surfaces found in many compact cars. The fact that this can be done while still keeping the starting price low shows that VW is committed to providing shoppers with a great balance of features and quality.
For 2017, you’ll find new features have been added across the trim levels. The base S trim adds larger 16-inch wheels, a rearview camera, LED DRLs and two-tone cloth upholstery to its menu. Other standard features include Bluetooth, 4-corner independent suspension and a 5-inch touchscreen system.
The 1.4-liter turbo four that was added last year continues as the base trim option, returning 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The hybrid powertrain is cut for 2017, but the 1.8T and 2.0T options will continue to be offered in higher trims and in the sporty GLI Volkswagen Jetta.
When most shoppers think of compact, they still want a vehicle that can comfortably seat 5. The Volkswagen Jetta has a comfortable 94.1 cubic feet of passenger space to provide plenty of legroom, while cargo volume sits at 15.7 cubic feet so you can still stock up on groceries even when the car is full.
What’s new for the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta?
Last year was a good one for the Jetta as it brought an updated base engine, but there is plenty to love about the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta too. The new model year offers just four trims: S, SE, SEL and GLI. The Jetta Hybrid has been removed from the lineup as it didn’t prove itself as popular as gasoline options.
Important additions to the S trim include larger wheels, a standard rearview camera, two-tone cloth seating and standard daytime running lights. A cold weather package will also be available with heated washer nozzles and front seats, though this might not be a high-ticket add-on for drivers here in So Cal. Available features in higher trim levels will include VW Car-Net, a sunroof, driver assistance features, leatherette seating, dual-zone automatic climate control and adaptive front lighting.
With more features added on, plus the same great powertrain specs, the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta promises to continue as a smart compact option that is easy and fun to drive. Contact us here at New Century Volkswagen to learn more about availability or schedule a test drive.
