Volkswagen has unveiled its 2019 Jetta in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show. First sold in 1979, the Jetta has sold more than 17 million models sold worldwide, 3.2 million in the United States. Updated for 2019, the new Jetta offers more space inside than the outgoing model and of course new technology. Price is an affordable $18,545, less than the outgoing base model.

“The Jetta has long been Volkswagen’s best-selling vehicle in the United States,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen, “and we expect that this all-new car will continue to resonate with buyers in the compact sedan class. With its combination of great technology, fuel-efficient drivetrains, sporty styling, upscale interior and amenities, and fun-to-drive nature, we expect that the Jetta will make a huge splash in the compact sedan market when it goes on sale.”

Compared with the current car, the new Jetta has a longer wheelbase by about an inch, and is longer, wider and taller than the outgoing model.
Inside, the 2019 Jetta features new fabric colors and seat designs, plus available heated and ventilated front seats, power driver’s seat with memory functionality, leather seating surfaces, and dual-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control. A new center storage console is 5-liters—large enough to fit a standard iPad.

All Jetta models offer standard Driver Personalization with up to four driver settings. Customizable features include: driver seat memory, driver assistance system preferences, temperature, Volkswagen Digital Cockpit arrangement (if equipped), ambient lighting color, radio presets, navigation view, and more.
Power is from a 1.4-liter turbo engine (147 horsepower), and it comes in both manual and auto transmissions. The People First Warranty provides coverage for six-years or 72,000-miles (whichever occurs first), and the warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout the remainder of its duration.

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta should arrive to dealers in the second quarter of 2018.
