2016 Volkswagen Jetta Bayshore NY
Once a vehicle catches you eye, what is the next thing that you normally do? Maybe check the price and see whether it’s within your range and even worth considering? Let’s say it is and the next steps that follow involve doing a little deeper research on the vehicle. You’ll more than likely want something that is efficient, safe, roomy, and comfortable enough to drive around every day.
Passing each of these requirements with flying colors is the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta in Bayshore, New York. The compact Volkswagen Jetta continues to find new ways to impress drivers each year, and for 2016, the greatest addition was its brand new infotainment system, MIB II, which offers all new connectivity through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. So let’s talk more about the Jetta…
The Jetta shows off a brand new base engine, a 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 150 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. There also is a 2.0L 4-cylinder, good for 210 hp, but this engine belongs to the Jetta GLI alone.
The Volkswagen Jetta’s new, smaller turbo is able to give drivers the boost of power and performance they’re looking for while still delivering an efficient ride whether it be long distances or short, highway commutes or congested city traffic. It manages to earn 28 city/ 40 hwy mpg.
Safety is never an issue in the Volkswagen Jetta. German engineering and craftsmanship always takes this into account, and with that being said, standard safety is always held to the highest expectations; in fact, the Jetta once again is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicle.
2016 Volkswagen Jetta: Above and beyond expectations
We’ve already touched on how the Volkswagen Jetta has gone above and beyond when it comes to safety standards but we also want to highlight the crash prevention systems that are available as well. The 2016 Jetta can be equipped with the following Driver Assistance Features: Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Park Pilot.
Another area where the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta particularly excels in is the amount of space it is able to provide for passengers and their cargo. Rear seat passengers can expect up to 38.1 inches of legroom which is what most midsize sedans are able to provide, and the Jetta is compact. It realistically is able to comfortably seat adult passengers up front and in the backseat.
In addition to being a safe vehicle choice that is efficient and spacious, the Volkswagen Jetta also makes an extremely good case for being a fun-to-drive car. Its turbocharged engine and responsive powertrain make for quick and energetic handling which translates into a more engaging drive in the city and especially on the highway.
