Other VW Jetta Performance Features

The focus on performance doesn’t end with what’s found under the hood. Raw performance is one thing, but the Jetta proves itself to be more well-rounded than that with dynamic handling and steering with the help of performance features like:

  • Cross Differential System XDS® - Available on R-Line Jettas, this system helps improve handling while cornering by sending targeted braking pressure to the interior front wheel when needed.
  • Driving Mode Selection - What kind of driving mood are you in? The Jetta lets you choose between Eco, Normal, Sport, and Custom drive modes.
  • Powertrain Warranty - Every version of the VW Jetta comes standard with a generous 6-year/72,000-mile powertrain warranty*, ensuring you’re covered for longer.
