2017 Volkswagen Jetta Thousand Oaks CA

For the best performance possible out of your compact sedan, both the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta in Thousand Oaks CA and 2017 Toyota Corolla are viable options, though there are definite aspects in which the Jetta holds an upper hand. For starters, its base engine produces greater horsepower and torque than any engine the Corolla offers, and with equivalent fuel efficiency you can have more fun behind the wheel while still achieving fantastic mileage. In addition, the Jetta’s 6-speed DSG® automatic transmission provides a driving experience that is both smoother and more responsive than that of the Corolla’s. Stepping inside, the Jetta has an uncanny ability to keep you safe, secure and connected in ways that the Corolla and its competition are simply not equipped to. The VW Car-Net infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to stream media (through a 400-watt Fender® Premium Audio System) , navigate and communicate with little effort. To top it all off, the Jetta has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and thanks to the wealth of available driver assistance features inside it’s not hard to see why. Some of these innovations include:

  • Intelligent Crash Response System
  • Front Assist
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Many more!
