VW Jetta Redesign & Appearance
The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta went through a bit of a redesign and style update. The vehicle features a longer wheelbase at 105.7 inches, compared to last year’s model which offered a 104.4 inch wheelbase. The cabin is taller and wider than the 2017 Jetta, which adds to the vehicle’s comfort due to the expanded passenger space. Other updates to the 2019 Jetta includes a larger front grille, sharper and more defined lines and even sleeker overall appearance that encompasses the visuals of a coupe-like vehicle.
The Jetta cabin also includes some notable updates as well. This includes the use of soft-touch materials throughout the interior that include a new design element to give the vehicle a more stylish and luxurious appeal. The seats are offered in a variety of new colors and design patterns. Heated and ventilated seats are available as optional upgrades, and this also includes the power driver’s seat with memory for added comfort and convenience.
Updated Technology & Entertainment
The 2019 Jetta offers more smartphone integration features with the inclusion of Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® to help you stay connected while out on the road. This model will also offer the option of including Volkswagen Car-Net® for easy and convenient smartphone connectivity. Drivers also have the option of including the new 400-watt BeatsAudio® sound system for crystal clear and high definition listening.
Engine Power & Optional Transmissions
The 1.4-liter TSI turbocharged 4-cylinder engine carries over from the 2017 model. This engine provides the ability to deliver 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes standard mated to a 6-speed manual transmission which adds an additional gear ratio from last year’s 5-speed transmission. However, this engine also offers the option for drivers to go with the 8-speed automatic transmission, which can accommodate every level of driver.
