Volkswagen, as an automaker, may have been around since the 1930s, but that doesn’t mean it is stuck in the old days. The 2020 model year of the Volkswagen Jetta just received a redesign the year before, bringing it up to date for the technology needs and expectations of drivers shopping in the new decade. Read on for information on if the Jetta works with your Android smartphone. 

Does the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta Connect to Android Auto™? 

The short answer is an emphatic ‘yes.’ The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is equipped with both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® for maximum compatibility with modern smartphones. Many cars these days are built with this capability, but it’s better on the Jetta because the compact Volkswagen sedan has a big, clear screen with an easy-to-use layout that makes connecting and using your smartphone easier than ever.

Is the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta Good for Streaming Audio? 

Having a high-resolution color infotainment screen is good, but a screen alone cannot replace the tactile feel of some buttons. The infotainment setup in the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta includes physical buttons and knobs that matter most while maximizing the responsiveness and intuitiveness of the screen. Having both buttons and a responsive screen makes setting up streaming easy, whether you want to listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks, or internet radio. 

Who Should Buy the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta?

Can I Connect My Smartphone to the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta? 

Knowing that most people who will buy a 2020 Volkswagen Jetta will have smartphones and want to connect them to the vehicle, Volkswagen provided USB ports. Some only charge devices, but there is a main USB in the front by the driver that connects to the infotainment system. If you don’t have cords, you can still go with the Bluetooth® route. That makes it easy for passenger-seat DJs to create a custom playlist for your drive without them needing to set up any auto apps on their phone.
