Crashes happen daily and none of us is insured against it. It can happen to me and it can happen to you. The best thing we can do is drive a vehicle that can protect us in an accident.

The safety cage of your VW Jetta protects the passengers in a roll over situation by having strong roofing pillars. It helps distribute forces away from the driver and passengers and keep the car's shape in a frontal crash to protect the driver and the passengers space. But that's not all.

The safety cage keeps the doors closed and able to open after the crash. Why? For easy access to the passengers in the vehicle.

Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)

Not all collisions deploy the airbags but when that happens the Intelligent Crash Response System activates the hazard lights, turns on the internal ones, unlocks the doors and shuts off the fuel pump to prevent fire or spraying fuel onto the ground.

The Intelligent Crash Response System also interacts with first responders allowing them to quickly locate and reach the car in a timely manner. Being a few minutes late can be the difference between life and death, literally.

Automatic Post Collision Braking System

After a crash the automatic post collision braking system helps slow the vehicle down. The goal is to reduce the chance of any additional impacts.

You might not know that but car crashes are a series of events not just one single event. The residual kinetic energy after the initial collision can cause additional damage. However, slowing down the vehicle can reduce the chance of that.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The main goal of the tire pressure monitoring system in VW Jetta is to inform you when the vehicle's tire pressure is low or going flat. How is that a safety feature you might think?

Bear with me for a minute here. At high speed under-inflated tires can cause unpredictable driving patterns and the vehicle is more likely to cause an accident.

Think about that. When was the last time you checked your vehicle's tire pressure? Probably never. Volkswagen's TPMS continuously monitors tire pressure and lets you know when it's time to inflate the tires. That translates into better vehicle handling, reduced braking distance, better fuel economy and decreased tire wear.
