VW Jetta gets more tech, more space, more everything
Volkswagen is betting that there’s enough life left to draw new customers to the redesigned Jetta.
Now, Volkswagen believes that much-improved driving dynamics, more technology and a more fuel-efficient gasoline powertrain in a redesigned Jetta that is moving onto the brand’s global MQB platform will draw sedan customers into its showrooms.
The redesigned Jetta will continue to be equipped with the brand’s 150-hp 1.4-liter turbocharged I-4 engine, but it will now be mated to either an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Volkswagen’s 2019 Jetta will get post-collision braking standard, with optional blind spot monitoring, rear parking assist and adaptive cruise control.
The 2019 Jetta will come with standard LED front and rear exterior lighting, and an updated cockpit will largely mirror the current design of the European 2018 Golf, with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment system.
The redesigned Jetta will make its global debut in January at the Detroit auto show.
