Vehicle Profile: 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
An efficient, comfortable and intelligent sedan for wise drivers

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta shines in its segment thanks to a balanced combination of eco-friendly performance, interior luxury and the latest technology to keep passengers engaged and protected on their journey.

Characteristic efficiency

While the 2019 model year ushers in some cosmetic tweaks for the VW Jetta, this compact car still delivers excellent mileage. That’s because it sticks with the model’s 1.4-liter turbo engine that you can pair with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic with Tiptronic® and Sport modes. The 2019 VW Jetta offers an average 34 mpg combined city/highway driving, which is 2 mpg more than last year’s model.*

Interior refinement

The 2019 VW Jetta incorporates more soft-touch surfaces than previous model years did. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces pair with heated front seats in the SE trim — all uncommon luxuries for a manufacturer to include on lower trims.

Choose the top-of-the-line SEL Premium trim for even more elegance. This trim offers ventilated front seats, leather seating surfaces, a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat with memory settings and sport-bolstered comfort seats.

Engaging technology

Even the base trim of the VW Jetta fosters a high-tech driving experience, with standard features such as Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect, Bluetooth®, and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen.

The SEL and SEL Premium trims are where the model really shines. These versions boast an 8-inch color display touchscreen, a three-month trial of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, MP3/WMA-compatible CD player, voice control and a proximity sensor.

Advanced driver assist technology

Access an array of modern safety features on the latest Jetta. The SE version offers Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert and Forward Collision Warning. Each of these functions will help you shift lanes, back up and move forward more safely. Autonomous Emergency Braking is also available, a feature which will increase the vehicle’s promptness when braking to help avoid an accident.

The SEL and Premium trims elaborate on this driver assistance system by adding a Lane Keeping System and High Beam Control. The former alerts the driver when the vehicle starts to drift outside of lane lines, while the latter adjusts head lamp illumination to accommodate oncoming traffic. 

If you’re in the market for a compact vehicle that saves you money at the pump while providing contemporary comforts and advanced technology to keep you safe and entertained, the 2019 VW Jetta aims to please.

*EPA estimates. Your mileage will vary and depends on several factors, including your driving habits and vehicle condition.
