Simple doesn’t mean dull, as Volkswagen has proven time and time again with the Jetta. This compact car, named after the jet stream, has proven it can go with the flow and prove to be a practical daily driver, but with surprising amenities for its class. Now the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is arriving to our Austin, TX dealership, Onion Creek Volkswagen, with a complete redesign.
You’ll notice first that the already sophisticated Jetta looks just a touch more aggressive with a chiseled hood, slim headlights and a sleek side profile. Improvements continue to the interior, with optional features like the 10-color interior ambient lighting there to put you in the right driving mood.
You already know you love the way the 2019 VW Jetta looks, but will you be just as enthused by the way it drives? The seventh-generation compact sedan has a standard 147-horsepower 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This provides the perfect blend of power and efficiency as it earns an EPA-estimated 30 city and 40 highway mpg rating. The six-speed manual transmission is a new upgrade from the five-speed from the previous model year. Even better, though, is an available eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport modes for a smooth and relaxing driving experience.
A new look and solid engineering is certainly enough to make the 2019 VW Jetta enticing, but what about features? All of the following are standard in the base, S, trim:
LED exterior lighting
A multi-function steering wheel
Coming/leaving home lighting
Driver personalization settings
Car-Net App-Connect with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
Bluetooth with audio streaming
Rearview camera system
6.5-inch color display
These are just the standards, and found on a model that is actually lower in manufacturer suggested retail price than the outgoing one. Find out if it’s a strong start to a new generation Jetta when you stop by Onion Creek Volkswagen for a test drive
