What makes the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta a good choice for teen drivers?

Other criteria included parental controls and a good fuel economy. The VW Jetta won in the $20,000 to $25,000 category, while its starting MSRP is $18,745, which means that some of the features it was chosen for were probably upgrades.

When the vehicle exceeds the set speed or leaves the set boundaries, the family will be notified through the app.
