Comfortable Interior

The interior of the VW Jetta offers seating for five, a sporty style, and comfortable amenities. Cloth seats come standard, but V-Tex leatherette and leather seats are also available. You’ll even be in control of a classic leather-wrapped steering wheel.

You’ll find lots of ways to get comfortable behind the wheel, too. There’s 38.5 inches of headroom and 41.1 inches of legroom; plus, you can add a 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat. Passengers in the second row will also have room to relax with 37.2 inches of headroom and 37.4 inches of legroom.

Dependable Safety Features

To keep you and your passenger safe, the Volkswagen Jetta is built with a strong safety cage that features front and rear crumple zones. These are designed to absorb energy and direct it away from the interior. You’ll also be protected by six airbags.

There are also lots of driver-assistance features that can help prevent accidents. For example, Front Assist features both a Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking. A Lane Keeping System is available to prevent you from drifting, while a Blind Spot Monitor will show you when it’s safe to change lanes.

A Rear-View Camera System comes standard to give you more visibility when you’re backing up. Just put it in reverse and your dashboard monitor will switch to a live look at what’s behind you. You can also add a Rear Traffic Alert that can warn you about incoming cars before your camera sees them.
