Easy on the Eyes and Your Wallet: Discover Convenience, Style, and Thrill in the New Volkswagen Jetta

It's rare that we often find such a sophisticated list of features, performance specifications, and exceptional qualities all bundled up into one crisp and clean package. If you're a driver in the Marrero or New Orleans area and are currently on the hunt for a new sedan to carry you to and from point A and point B, you'll greatly appreciate the on-road resume (if not legacy) of the highly-efficient and quick new Volkswagen Jetta.

Slated as the brand's smallest sedan, the Jetta still retains plenty of space for passengers and cargo in its versatile interior. This eye-catching model also boasts a sensible amount of power under its stylish hood. If you're looking to engage a touch more with your travels, whether it be through convenient tech, swift handling, or ergonomic seating, you should surely explore our wide selection of new and used Volkswagen Jetta sedans available here at Walker Volkswagen.

Turbocharged Performance for Drivers Throughout the Greater Metairie Area

All Jetta models boast Front-Wheel-Drive drive trains and turbocharged four-cylinder engines. This powertrain can make 147 horsepower which is more than enough muscle to move this lightweight sedan. While the Jetta might not be tuned to push out as much horsepower and torque as its hot hatchback brethren, the sedan more than makes up for it with its exemplary fuel economy ratings. The Jetta sedan can achieve a 30-mpg rating through the city, so right off the bat you know it's a great choice for commuting to and form the office. If you find that you're behind the wheel more often than not and travelling throughout the Westwego and Gretna, LA region, the new Jetta can also make 40 mpg on the highway. For those drivers looking for a slightly more aggressive driving experience, the Volkswagen model offers a Cross Differential System XDS on the R-Line trim that applies brake pressure through tight cornering situations.
