2019 Jetta Built On New Platform

The all-new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is built with dynamic proportions and a modern design that give it a stunning presence on the road that is matched only by the power, convenience, technology and safety features packed into it.

“The Jetta is such an iconic product,” said Klaus Bischoff, head of design. “We wanted to come up with something totally new. It was essential to give this product more prestige, more sportiness, a totally new proportion.”

Under the Hood

Volkswagen engineers equipped the 2019 Jetta with a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 148 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.

The engine is teamed with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Comfort and Convenience

Drivers will notice that the exterior styling is brought inside with trapezoidal design cues and a driver-focused instrument cluster that is built for ease of view. The infotainment system is also built with the same ease-of-use mentality and seamlessly connect with smartphones for hands-free voice calls, audio streaming and mobile app integration.

Volkswagen’s App-Connect system works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to enhance the mobile connection to the vehicle and make using the devices safer and easier with vehicle-adapted interfaces on a large screen for quick use.

The available turn-by-turn navigation system comes on an 8-inch screen and features dynamic route guidance.

Another optional feature on 2019 Jettas is the panoramic sunroof which gives maximum light and airy feeling inside the vehicle while still protecting occupants from the elements.


Volkswagen designers put safety at the top of the priority list for the 2019 Jetta. A full set of airbags and three-point seat belts at all seating locations protect occupants in the event of a collision.

Antilock disc brakes, electronic stability control and traction control help stop the vehicle quickly and keep it under the driver’s control.

Driver assistance features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, light assist, lane assist and rear traffic alert. A rearview camera makes reversing easier and safer as well.
