The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta has been awarded a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
NHTSA’s new car assessment program provides information on front, side, and rollover crashes. The Jetta’s five-star rating makes it the third VW vehicle to earn the top score, joining the Passat and Beetle coupe.
Some small changes have come to the Jetta in 2014, including a new independent rear-suspension setup along with the addition of a new small 1.8-liter turbocharged engine.
Volkswagen also announced a trim for the Jetta TDI known as the value edition which knocks about $2,300 off of the starting price for a Jetta equipped with the little diesel motor.
