Jetta - Safety

Only when you feel safe can you drive confidently. Which is why, safety is such a fundamental concept in the new Jetta. It’s also why a whole range of new generation safety features are fitted as standard.

Parking sensors: These assist in parking manoeuvres by emitting both audible and visual signals, alerting the driver to any obstacles in the way: the closer you are to an obstacle, the faster the sound frequency. In addition, an Optical Parking Display extends the functions of the parking sensors by indicating your position on the vehicle’s video display during parking.

Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP):

This vital safety feature recognises critical driving situations and reacts in milliseconds by
targeting brake and management systems, controlling the speed of individual wheels and
helping to bring the vehicle under control. As a result, the vehicle achieves maximum directional stability. Further active safety features include an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) and Traction Control (ASR).

A comprehensive eight airbag safety system gives maximum protection to the driver and the
passengers. This includes a curtain airbag system for front and rear passengers, front and
rear seat side airbags as well as the standard driver’s and front passenger’s airbags with
passenger’s airbag deactivation switch.
