2017 Volkswagen Jetta Elgin IL

When it comes to cars, sometimes simpler is better. You do not always need a plethora of bells and whistles and features that complicate the driving experience without actually adding anything to it. It is important to note that simple does not mean boring. Simplicity can still include exciting characteristics that enhance the ride, and this is exactly what you can find when you get behind the wheel of the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta in Elgin IL.

For 2017, the Jetta has not been fully revamped, but rather, refreshed and updated to keep up with the ever-changing world. A rearview camera is now standard on the base trim, giving you eyes in the back of your head while in reverse. The exterior design remains crisp and clean, and inside you will find a surprisingly roomy cabin that takes everyone’s comfort and safety into consideration. The Jetta provides a simplified experience for a complicated world.

While bells and whistles can sometimes be a distraction from mediocrity, that is not the case with the available features on the Jetta. For example, the available VW Car-Net App-Connect synchronizes your phone to the car, keeping you in touch with the world.
