Mechanical limited-slip differential

The mechanical limited-slip differential automatically adjusts torque between the front wheels for precise cornering. Point the steering wheel to the apex, punch the gas and go.

BeatsAudio® premium sound

Turn up the tunes with BeatsAudio® premium sound. The 8-speaker system with subwoofer delivers crisp, studio-quality sound.


Blind Spot Detection

On some road trips, you just can’t take in everything you wanted to see. This handy feature is designed to use radar to trigger a warning light in your side-view mirror to help notify you if a vehicle is detected out of view in your blind spot.

Driver assistance feature. Drivers must continue to perform manual checks and pay full attention to the road and safe driving. Please review the owner’s manual for feature limitations.

Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Cruise control is great for keeping the same speed. This system goes further, as it’s designed to maintain a preset following distance. Without you touching the pedals, the system is designed to automatically brake when traffic slows and resume your set speed when traffic picks up again.‡

Driver assistance feature. Drivers must continue to perform manual checks and pay full attention to the road and safe driving. Please review the owner’s manual for feature limitations.
‡In emergency situations, it is still necessary to apply the brakes manually.

Available Lane Assist

Catch your drift. If Lane Assist detects that you have started to stray into another lane without using the turn signal, the system is designed to help keep you in the correct lane.

Driver assistance feature. Drivers must continue to perform manual checks and pay full attention to the road and safe driving. Please review the owner’s manual for feature limitations.

Available Light Assist

Everyone forgets sometimes. Lucky for you, the Jetta always remembers to turn the high beams on or off again when needed. So you never have to be that driver again.

Automatic post-collision braking system

Help stop accidents in their tracks. The moment an accident is detected, the system automatically tightens seat belts and triggers emergency braking to help prevent further accidents.
