2019 Volkswagen Jetta. Entering the seventh generation, the car has been given the new foreign borrowing elements of the T-Rock. It features Volkswagen’s new flat and wide grille design with integrated LED headlights on the edges. The compact lounge is also slightly longer and has a wider wheelbase that will increase the room inside the cabin. The full Volkswagen Jetta will be redesigned for the 2019 model.
Despite the constant shift in consumer tastes towards the Crossover SUV, German auto cars are betting that car buyers will appreciate a premium sedan with a value-oriented price. The most important changes will be an updated platform common with vehicles such as Volkswagen Golf and Audi A3, the largest overall footprint and impressive technology in the cabin available at the top end of the spectrum.
In terms of design, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta looks very modern, in some ways closer to the Passat but different enough to avoid being seen as just a smaller version of the flagship family sedan. The grid has a new trapezoid shape, quite different from the flannel design can be said of the outgoing generation. Although it is only about 1.3 inches taller than before, the new Volkswagen Jetta has quite a more planned appearance because the wheels have pushed outward. Volkswagen says the passenger room has increased, potentially boosting appeal among shoppers from small cars, hoping not to sacrifice the room.
In the cabin, the Volkswagen Jetta aims to give you more sense of soft materials and updated rates. A number of advanced features such as the customizable digital cockpit will be available on top-end decors adapted from the technology used in Audi cars to display navigation, vital system stats, radio presets and more. The inside storage of the car has been improved with the center console large enough to fit the tablet.
Under the bonnet, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta comes equipped with a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder rated at 147 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. This is much more simplistic compared to the additional options the outgoing generation of 1.8-liter turbo versions in the highest spec or turbo 2.0-liter boil. The 6-speed manual transmission is the standard entry-level 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, but all other versions come with 8-speed automatic shut down technology to increase efficiency. Fuel economy figures are not released, but the same engine is rated at Volkswagen Jetta outgoing at 33 mpg with manual and 32 mpg with automatic.
In terms of safety, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta feature all the latest assistive driver technology. Optional emergency restraint, hot departure warning, adaptive speed control and blind spot monitoring with rear wake-up alert will be available. Like the other Volkswagen, the Volkswagen Jetta also has a braking system after a collision that applies brakes in the event of an accident to help reduce movement and prevent additional damage.
Available finishes will include S, C, CELL, SEAL Premium and R-Line. Full pricing is expected later. Major competitors include Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra. Official pricing will start at $18,545 excluding the destination, and $100 less than the previous generation. It will reach 2019 Volkswagen Jetta sometime in the late spring of this year.
