An Update to the Beloved Volkswagen Jetta

The Jetta has always been a practical vehicle, offering reliable performance for a vehicle that you can trust, and 2019 brings a huge redesign to the iconic model. The newest Jetta offers a new powertrain, platform, features, and technology making sure anyone who gets behind the wheel will love it.

"Getta Betta Jetta"

The tagline is everywhere - television, online, radio - and rings true for the 2019 model year. It takes on the new Modular Transverse Matrix platform that Volkswagen has moved to, helping reduce the price by allowing a wide variety of models to have the same foundation. This is just the first major update that we can see for the Jetta, and we should be expecting more over the next few years thanks to the reduced production cost.

What to Expect for Power

While there are many trim levels to choose from - S, SE, R-Line, SEL, and SEL Premium - there is only one engine available on them. The 1.4-Liter engine can make 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque for an exciting performance. This might be surprising seeing as the previous generation had three engines that you can choose from, but we have yet to hear any news about a 2019 Jetta GLI that had come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

You are able to choose between a six-speed manual - only available on the base Jetta S - or an eight-speed automatic with manual shifting mode. Volkswagen was able to keep the fuel efficiency the same no matter which you choose, offering 30 MPG for the city and 40 MPG on the Highway. When you want to pinpoint performance to your own standards, you can use the VW Driving Mode Selection.

A Focus on Practicality in Many Ways

While the Jetta is no slouch, it also isn't as thrilling as models like the Golf but offers more practicality for families. It is a commuter vehicle that you can rely on, happily bringing you to work, your kids to practice, or for a night out. The Jetta faces more towards agile handling to help you stay comfortable both at highway speeds and driving around a city.

The 2019 Jetta comes with a variety of features for everyone to enjoy, helping make the best experience for the driver. The standard screen for the media center is 6.5-inches, able to be upgraded to 8 inches on some models and connects you to the Car-Net system with App-Connect for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for easy access to your phone, messaging, and maps.

Many models offer a large, digital screen for their instruments, doubling as a full-screen navigation display, and the 2019 Jetta does the same with a 10.25-inch display. If you are someone who wants to be on the cutting-edge of technology, this is for you, along with the 400-watt BeatsAudio™ premium sound system.

The Essence of a Luxury Car

The Jetta isn't a model that is generally considered to be a luxury sedan, but with the newest updates, it is getting just about as close as it can be, pushing into the category with some of its trims. You might be surprised to see that only one upgrade will cost nearly $4,000, it truly offers many more features that you could enjoy. The Jetta SE and R-Line come with automatic climate control, front heated seats, and a power panoramic sunroof, including smooth leatherette seat upholstery and trim-exclusive accents for the R-Line.

The most-upgraded trims - SEL and SEL Premium - offer the features that every driver will love. Features like heated and ventilated front seats, a ten-inch customizable interior ambient lighting system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and more will push your Jetta into the luxury range.

An Updated Design

New generation means new design, and the 2019 Jetta offers a more aggressive look for you to appreciate. Distinct lines and sharper edges lead along the body, from the LED headlights to the LED taillights that signify your comings and goings help to turn heads wherever you go.

You can choose a color that reflects your style with options like Silk Blue Metallic, Deep Black Pearl Metallic, Black, Platinum Grey Metallic, White Silver Metallic, Pure White, Tornado Red, Habanero Orange Metallic, and Sage Green Metallic.

Staying Confident Behind the Wheel

Safety features have always been some of the most important features in a vehicle, and the 2019 Jetta offers everything that you could possibly be looking for. It starts with the design, coming with a "Safety Cage" to work with the front and rear crumple zones to keep the force of an accident away from drivers and passengers.

There are advanced features available that will keep you a safe distance from objects and vehicles. You can choose to include Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking, and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, helping you feel comfortable on even the most hectic roads.

The People First Warranty

Volkswagen makes it clear that they put their drivers first, offering a warranty that helps drivers know they are covered if something happens. The Jetta is covered by a six-year/72,000-mile transferable, bumper-to-bumper limited new-vehicle warranty, making it more impressive than the majority of manufacturers on the market.
