2020 Volkswagen Jetta – Safety Features

Part of the redesign for the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta was an overhaul of its safety features and technology. The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta continues with this tradition by upgrading its Car-Net infotainment system and in-car wifi abilities. Additionally, a cold-weather package will be optional for the SE and SE R trims, and standard in the SEL and SEL Premium trims. The cold-weather package offers drivers in Beverly Hills:

  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated front and rear seats
  • Windshield wiper de-icer
  • Heated windshield washer nozzles
  • Remote start

The IIHS crash test and emergency braking system ratings for the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta are expected to mirror the “Good” and “Superior” ratings of the 2019 Jetta.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta – Performance

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta will offer the same 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the 2019 model. With 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, this standard six-speed manual transmission engine will excel on the roads of West Hollywood.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta – Style

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta took on the competitors by completely redesigning its interior and exterior features, and the updated 2020 Jetta does not disappoint either. Keeping with the 2019 redesign, the 2020 Jetta offers new 17-inch aluminum wheels on its SEL and SEL Premium trims. This is coupled with a streamlined cabin design, removing distracting designs and offering drivers in Brentwood premium comfort and amenities.
