Although the 8 inch touch screen has large icons that are easy to be touched with a finger, but the owner also can control the system via two buttons and eight buttons arranged just below the screen, or by voice commands or buttons on the steering wheel. Everything works very intuitive, and the system responds quickly. Jetta also plans to add 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot. Another major change in the cabin 2017 Jetta Hybrid is the design of the steering wheel, which is now more comfortable in the hand. Moreover, it is already equipped with heating, which is very useful when entering the winter in countries with four seasons. However, if in a tropical country like our country, this feature is also very helpful when night or early morning, especially during rainy weather. Broadly speaking, the cabin atmosphere is still the same as the previous model, the ‘clean’ and has a dashboard layout that is friendly for users with key line that is easily accessible and convenient to operate.
Exterior and Safety
2017 Jetta is also quieter, so you cannot feel that the car is speeding thanks to the softness of the suspension, cool damping, and gentle boost engine power. It also offered features of the front wheels, but it seems most people would prefer AWD system or motion all-wheel system. This system can fully transmit engine power to the front or rear wheels if required. Working with this way, you will no longer feel the loss of traction while traversing slippery roads or when the road steep uphill climb.
