Volkswagen Steps Up Its Game in the 2019 Jetta
The Volkswagen Jetta has been a popular favorite among American buyers since its release in 1979. Combining affordability with great handling and well-thought design features, the Jetta has never failed to delight.
With the onset of a new model year, Volkswagen has treated the public to a re-mastered version of their popular sedan that is quieter, sleeker and altogether more luxurious feeling. The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a contender in its own class that may even punch above its weight in a few areas of consideration.
The 2019 Jetta has undergone proportion renovation, experiencing an increase in width and length to improve its interior dimensions and external presence. The interior has been redesigned for ease of access, allowing the driver to utilize an available Digital Cockpit and 10.25-inch infotainment display to keep tabs on critical information. On higher-level trims an available BeatsAudio 12-channel sound system is accessible, capable of thumping out 400-watts of premium audio. Additionally, this enhanced infotainment capability includes smartphone compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as available crash notification and remote access systems.
Interior gems aside, the 2019 Jetta is more than capable of holding its own on the streets. An available 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder cranks up to 147-horsepower and an impressive 184 pound-feet of torque through an eight-speed transmission, producing a smooth and clean ride. Volkswagen ensures safety is paramount, providing enhanced safety systems, including automatic cruise control and lane centering.
While the Volkswagen Jetta may be nearing its 40 year birthday, it continues to find new life and refreshing vigor. The 2019 Jetta is a pure joy to drive and is sure to keep the Jetta line on the books for many years to come.
