2019 Volkswagen Jetta
What is the 2019 Jetta?
The highly anticipated 2019 Jetta has been announced! The New Jetta is bigger, and more technologically advanced then ever before! The Jetta has a longer wheelbase, increased 30 millimetres. The Jetta is also taller then the outgoing model resulting in more cabin space and comfort for all passengers. The one carryover from the previous model is VW’s 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine; its 147 horsepower with 184 lb.-ft. of torque is industry leading in the compact sedan class. Purists will be happy to hear that the 2019 Jetta is still available with a six-speed manual, although it is available with an eight-speed automatic with standard Start/Stop system for ultimate fuel savings.
Whats The New Tech?
The interior has been completely redesigned with all technology at the focus. Volkswagen offers one of the most advanced infotainment systems on the market! The infotainment system has also been moved further up in the dash to make it easier to read. Features like Apple Car-Play, Android Auto, and Mirror-Link are also available, as is a 400-watt Beats Audio sound system for a truly integrated driving experience.
What Makes The Car Safe?
For Volkswagen producing a safe car has always been a priority. The 2019 Jetta will have a rear-view camera as standard. Additional features like a forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, lane keep assist, and automatic post-collision braking are available.
What’s it got powertrain-wise?
The new Jetta will continue to be powered by Volkswagen's 1.4-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine, making 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, the highest in the compact sedan class. The power is taken to the front wheels via a new standard six-speed manual transmission, with an eight-speed automatic transmission optional on the base model and standard on higher trims. Automatic transmission models come standard with a Start/Stop system designed to improve fuel efficiency. This technology stops the engine during idle when the brake pedal is held (such as when waiting at a stop light). When the brake pedal is released, the engine restarts.
What are we talking in terms of interior technology?
Volkswagen has made a huge push towards more tech-focused cars over the past couple years, and this is apparent in the 2019 Jetta. Front and center is the available Digital Cockpit, which replaces the traditional analog gauges with a fully configurable digital system. VW’s Digital Cockpit offers the driver a choice of different display modes including Classic, Off-road, Navigation and Driver Assistance, all of which clearly display relevant information on a 12.3” High-Res screen. It’s truly useful, and looks awesome. Other tech features inside include an available 8” infotainment screen with next-gen dynamic navigation, connectivity for all major types of phones and operating systems, Climatronic climate control, the list goes on. In short, the 2019 is truly a car for the future!
