When Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com posted its 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000, we scanned the names faster than a Volkswagen Turbo on the Autobahn. Imagine our joy when we saw that the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta made the cut for the second year in a row.
On Wednesday, June 20, 2012, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com released its annual picks for 2012. Their expert editors shared these kind words: “Priced and sized for American tastes, the Jetta is also wrapped in clean, tasteful styling that will look sharp for years to come.”
We’ll admit that we’re somewhat biased, but we think the Jetta is cool in lots of ways. We upped the cool factor with standard features like power locks with keyless access and power heated exterior mirrors. And because nothing’s cooler than arriving at your destination in one piece, the Jetta has a whole host of standard safety features, including Electronic Stability Control, six airbags, ABS braking and Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash Response System. And the Jetta is not only safe and stylish—it’s also comfy, so stretch out and enjoy the spacious front and rear legroom. Like all Volkswagen models, the Jetta is covered under the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. Now that’s cool.
Get all the details on this awesome honor in KBB’s 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 – 2012.
Tell us: what do you think makes the 2012 Jetta cool?
