2021 Volkswagen Jetta Specs: Exterior Design

2021 Volkswagen Jetta DesignHow can a small sedan pack so much inside its sleek frame? It starts by extending the wheelbase to 105.8 inches. This creates extra legroom up front for taller drivers to take advantage.

VW also creates more hip and shoulder room by stretching the VW Jetta 70.8 inches wide. The secondary effect is a sedan which does a far better job at hugging the road. This focus on aerodynamic design also gets a boost thanks to the sedan’s 57.6-inch height.
