With 115,807 units sold in 2017, the Volkswagen Jetta is the most popular German car in the U.S. The new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is completely redesigned for what Volkswagen calls a tasteful and more premium look.
The new sedan has a 1.4 turbocharged engine, 147 horsepower and 184 pond-feet of torque and boasts an EPA-estimated 40 highway miles per gallon.
The Jetta also features a sportier and sleek design with a sculpted hood, simple grille and 17-inch wheels. The dashboard has a modern and clean look with an 8-inch touchscreen navigation and 10-inch digital cockpit. The cockpit can be customized to include speed, fuel economy, travel time, assistance system, elevation and stores up to four driver profiles.
Depending on the trim, the Jetta also offers a larger, panoramic sunroof and two-tone heated and ventilated leatherette seating.
This new design also brings a couple of new firsts for the German auto maker. The Jetta is first Volkswagen in the U.S. to offer BeatsAudio and also the first to offer ambient lighting with 10 color options available.
Volkswagen Car-Net Security and Service is also available. The service helps find parking, checks if the car doors are locked, calls for help in case of an emergency and provides a vehicle health report. For younger drivers, Car-Net also provides speed, curfew, valet and boundary alerts.
Volkswagen is also offering the new People’s Warranty, a new 6-year/ 72,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty that is fully transferable.

- $18,545 for S Model
