HERNDON, Va. – The 2022 entire Jetta range of sedans from Volkswagen will add standard Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Traffic Alert and the GLI models will also have IQ.DRIVE® driver assistance as standard fitment (and it will be available on other versions).

These advance driver-assist systems (ADAS) changes come in addition to other improvements to the refreshed Jetta range for 2022.

“As the best-selling VW for more than 30 years, Jetta has proven to be a compelling value,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President for Product Marketing and Strategy. “This refresh takes the strengths of the current generation—a spacious interior, excellent fuel economy, and low maintenance costs—and builds on them with a fresh design, better technology, and more access to the driver assistance features buyers are looking for.“

IQ.DRIVE® driver assistance technology is available from the entry Jetta trim. IQ.DRIVE includes Front Assist (Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring), Active Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, Lane Assist (Lane Keeping System), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) Stop and Go, Travel Assist (semi-automated driving assistance), and Emergency Assist (semi-automated vehicle assistance in a medical emergency).

Base Jetta models come standard with Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert, and can be optioned with the IQ.DRIVE package to round out the feature set (Emergency Assist available on automatic models only). Jetta models come standard with IQ.DRIVE from the mid-trim and up, as does the GLI. Light Assist (High Beam Control for headlights) is also available.

The 2022 Jetta will be offered in four value-laden trim levels, while the GLI will be offered in one fully loaded trim. New for 2022 is the Jetta Sport trim, which features enthusiast-inspired content at a value-oriented price point. The XDS electronic differential lock and dark graphite 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are standard, along with a blacked-out grille, mirror caps and window trim, a black headliner, and unique cloth sport seats.  The Sport trim replaces the previous model year’s R-Line trim, and is repositioned just above the base S trim for maximum accessibility.
