Five-Star Safety Rating for 2014 VW Jetta

2014 VW Jetta NHTSA 600x399 at Five Star Safety Rating for 2014 VW Jetta

The Volkswagen Jetta has always been the underdog, both in VW’s range and in the compact sedan segment. It’s a good car, offering plenty of value at a fair price. And now turns out it is also quite safe, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it a 5-start safety rating.

The 2014 VW Jetta exceled at the institution’s front, side, and rollover crash tests thanks to a combination of advanced safety features and clever engineering a rigid construction that absorbs most of the energy of the impact before it even reaches the occupants. Meanwhile a range of airbags inside the cabin cushion the blow and protect the passengers.

The Jetta joins the Passat and the Beetle coupe as 2014 Volkswagen models that have an overall 5-Star Rating.

For 2014, the VW Jetta is offered with a new 1.8-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection EA888 engine and independent rear suspension. It does 36 mpg. There is also a new 2014 Jetta TDI Value Edition, priced at $21,295 when equipped with the manual transmission, which comes with a 2.0-liter TDI Clean Diesel engine, electric power steering, 16-inch steel wheels, heatable cloth seats, cruise control, a Media Device Interface (MDI), SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and two additional speakers.
