Another Reason to Love the Volkswagen Jetta: Wins 2017 Ideal Vehicle Award

Here at Larry H. Miller Volkswagen Lakewood, we know how wonderful the Volkswagen Jetta is, so it is always nice when it earns it’s deserved recognition for its greatness. AutoPacific, Inc., an automotive research and consulting firm, honored the 2017 Jetta with a 2017 Ideal Vehicle Award.

The 2017 Jetta was named the top vehicle in the compact car category among major manufacturers for meeting owners’ expectations and desires. This award is based off responses from more than 54,000 owners of new model year 2016 and 2017 vehicles from all major manufacturers. 


“The Volkswagen Jetta has been a bestseller for the brand, and the AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award is a testament of how much Jetta owners love their vehicles,” said Hendrik Muth, senior vice president of product marketing & strategy at Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Our planners, designers, and engineers work hard to help ensure every last detail in the Jetta delivers on what buyers want in a compact vehicle, so we are truly honored by this recognition.”


To reach these conclusions, the survey asked owners what they would change about their new vehicles across 15 key categories including ride and handling, interior storage, safety features, power and acceleration, and technology. The Ideal Vehicle Award identifies vehicles whose owners request the least amount of changes, which then points out those products that meet the expectations of the buyers.

“Even the most satisfied owner would change something about their vehicle if given the opportunity,” says George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “AutoPacific’s IVAs identify vehicles whose owners want the least amount of change—those that are truly hitting the mark with owners.”


The Volkswagen Beetle and Volkswagen Golf earned the second and third spots, respectively.
