Volkswagen is known for many things: style, high-powered engines, and a stunning amount of efficiency. But did you know that Volkswagen vehicles also include some of the best safety features around?

From a tremendously protective design to incredibly intuitive technology, the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta can offer Rome, Utica, and Manlius drivers some huge safety benefits. Our team at Nye Volkswagen of Rome is going to show you how.

Safety Commendations

If you’re wondering just how safe the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta actually is, you need look no further than its safety commendations.

Not only has the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the Jetta a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, it’s also received a TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

A Variety of Structural Reinforcements

One of the key factors that’s helped the Volkswagen Jetta earn these awards is its tremendously sturdy design. For your safety, the unitary, steel-stamped body has been fortified with several features that can both absorb and redistribute impact forces.

The passenger cabin was built to act as a veritable safety cage. This is achieved through the use of anti-intrusion side door beams and a crash-optimized front end. With these enhancements in place, your Jetta can keep you safe even under high pressure.

Intuitive Safety Technology

Backing up this rugged structural design is an array of incredibly smart safety features, many of which can think and act for you to help prevent accidents.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Cruise control is a convenient feature, but one of its main issues is that it can’t account for sudden speed changes in the vehicles around you.

Adaptive Cruise Control, on the other hand, uses sensors to monitor your following distances. If it detects the car in front of you slowing down, it will too.

Blind Spot Monitor

If you had eyes in the back of your head, it might be easier to avoid collisions. Awareness is crucial, after all. But it’s very hard to keep track of something if it’s drifted into your blind spot.

Luckily, the Blind Spot Monitor can keep an eye on things for you. If you attempt a lane change when a car is following in your blind spot, the monitor will send you an immediate alert.

Park Pilot

For some of us, parallel parking isn’t easy. It can hard to tell exactly how much space is behind you, or how far you are from the curb. Fortunately, the available Park Pilot can tell you.

There’s Plenty More Where That Came From…

In addition to these awesome features, Jetta drivers will have access to:

  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Front Assist
  • Brake override
  • Passenger Occupant Detection System
