The Volkswagen Jetta is a small compact car that has been produced by the German car company Volkswagen for nearly 40 years. The car has gone through a lot of different iterations and improvements since it was first introduced. The most recent change to the car came with the 2011 model year when several new trims and options were introduced for the first time.
What's New for 2017
The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta has received several improvement and upgrades from the 2016 model year. Some of the new features that are included are the rearview camera that comes standard, new drivers assistance options, an upgraded tech and entertainment system, and the inclusion of more USB ports.
Trim Levels and Other Options
The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta has four different trim levels for drives to choose from. The most affordable option is the S, which is then followed by the SE, SEL, and the GLI. The S trim has a range of standard features that are still new for the Volkswagen Jetta. These include a rearview camera, driver assistance, and a touchscreen display.
With each additional trim level, new features and other amenities are added. The top of the line trim, which is the GLI, has a larger engine, a sport-tuned suspension system, and additional safety and tech features. Those that would like some of the features that come with the GLI will have the option to purchase from a variety of upgradeable packages.

The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta has three different engine options. The S and SE both come with the standard 1.5 cylinder engine that produces around 150 horsepower. While engine performance may not seem very strong, fuel efficiency is near the top of the class with nearly 33mpg.
The SEL comes with a slightly more powerful 1.8 cylinder engine that can produce over 170 horsepower. Those that are looking for the most performance possible out of the Volkswagen Jetta will want to upgrade to the GLI trim. This comes standard with the turbocharged engine that can produce over 210 horsepower. Even with the enhanced power, the Volkswagen Jetta still gets nearly 27mpg average fuel efficiency.
Overall, the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta provides a driving experience that is in line with the rest of the competition. Those that are looking for the best driving experience would want to upgrade to the GLI. This trim level comes standard with the more powerful engine, a sportier suspension system, and more inside luxury finishes and features that help to improve comfort.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Volkswagen Jetta Sedan invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Volkswagen Jetta Sedan MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
