Presented this year at the North American International Auto Show held in early January in Detroit, the all-new generation of the Volkswagen Jetta is one of the most important cars to be unveiled this year in the automotive industry. With over 16 million Volkswagen Jetta sold worldwide since 1979, a new model is nothing short of an event.
Here are three things to know about the new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta.
The New 2019 Jetta Retains the Same Engine as the Previous Model
The engine is pretty much the only thing that is not new or improved on the new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. Indeed, the new generation will be powered by the same four-cylinder turbo engine that powered the old Jetta. With 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, this engine still remains one of the most powerful in its segment. It can be paired with a high-performance 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission.
The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta Will Be More Spacious
The new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is improved in almost every aspect. Yes, the engine remains the same, but it is nevertheless one of the most advanced in the compact sedan segment. Apart from the engine, everything is new on the 2019 Jetta. Built on Volkswagen’s modular MQB platform, there is more interior and cargo space in the new Jetta.
In addition, the quality of the materials found inside has improved, and the Jetta offers a more upscale and refined cabin. With the new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, you will feel like you are driving a car that is more expensive than its selling price.
More Technologies in the New 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
In addition to being more spacious and elegant, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will also be better equipped. A range of driver assistance technologies will be available, such as adaptive cruise control and lane departure prevention, and high-end versions will feature the 12.3-inch digital dashboard.
