If safety is an important factor in your car buying decision, you'll be very impressed with the Jetta and its plethora of safety features. Safety starts with its rigid and protective bodyshell, as well as a safety cage that features "crumple zones" to divert crash energy away from the passengers. The Intelligent Crash Response System does such things as turn on the hazard lights and unlock the doors in the event of a collision. In addition to improving safety, properly inflated tires result in higher fuel economy. The Jetta helps address this with its Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Also, along with its standard rearview camera, the 2018 Jetta offers many available driving assistance features, including Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert.
