The all-new 2019 offers bolder design, more interior space and the newest technology from the premium class.
The new 2019 Jetta is powered by Volkswagen's 1.4-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine, making 147 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque.
While the 2019 Jetta is more technologically advanced than ever, retaining its fun-to-drive character was of critical importance. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, with an eight-speed automatic available optionally.
Primary goals in its creation were driving comfort and fuel economy. A shorter first gear is designed to provide faster acceleration than the previous model as well. Shift-by-wire hydraulics pair with optimized gear teeth and ultra-low friction mating surfaces to create a seamless, efficient, and comfortable drive experience.
A Start/Stop System is standard on automatic-transmission models. This technology stops the engine during idle when the brake pedal is held (such as when waiting at a red light). When the brake pedal is released, the engine restarts seamlessly.
The combination of a large front grille and sharper lines exudes a bold character, while the addition of more chrome and LED lighting lend a premium feel. The trapezoidal grille is composed of four chrome bars, two of which flow into the headlight housings where the LEDs pick up the lines and connect them for a wrap-around effect.
The Jetta interior architecture engineered for increased comfort while supporting a sophisticated, upscale design. The 2019 Jetta has more headroom, knee room, and shoulder room than the previous car.
The cockpit is a driver-focused environment, with form following function. Both the instruments and the infotainment system are arranged in an easy-to-read horizontal orientation. Both the infotainment system and the climate-control interface are located on the center console, which is angled towards the driver.
