Jetta, Another Name for Small Jet

The Jetta is the small family car that was created to fill a niche that was above the infamous Golf. Like the Golf that was name after the gulf stream, the Jetta was named after the Jet stream. But, in all honesty, I feel as if the Jetta SEL should be named after a small jet, because the features and driving experience are similar to being in flight. The past few blogs that I have written about the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta have focused on the safety features, and how well it is prepared to keep you safe in the event of an accident. But today, I would like to focus on the fun and excitement that this midsize sedan has to offer.

The Jetta SEL features a 1.8L Turbo engine that produces 170 horsepower and 184 lbs of torque. With a four corner independent suspension and a 6 speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode, this car is sure to put a smile on your face. The pick up that this small family car is fantastic for whipping the family around to the park and beyond.


The info-tainment system is what really makes you feel in control. The SEL features XM radio capabilities as well as a brilliant navigation control that ensures you will not be stuck out in the boonies ever again. The steering wheel features complete control over the Bluetooth phone, radio and car information. It’s push buttons are conveniently located to be easily manipulated by the thumbs. And with the new App-connect feature, your cell phone becomes fully integrated with your car. Your phone contacts, music and GPS go easily through your cable to the Info-tainment screen. Apps like Pandora, iBooks and Podcasts are now going through your car, which will make long rides more enjoyable for the family. With the App-connect feature, text messaging is no longer a problem. Your text messages are read back to you through the voice commands. This makes it easier for you to never take your eyes off the road again.

The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta SEL has it all and it is waiting here for you at Midlands Volkswagen in Columbia, SC. Call us, and make an appointment soon to take a test drive in this fantastic new automobile. I am sure that you will instantly see that German engineering is what is right for you.
