The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is marking its fourth decade in existence in all-new form this year. VW’s compact sedan returns with crisp design, enhanced safety and driver-assist features, and fresh technology, while the GLI packs potent performance. Also attractive is its under-$20,000 starting price. The new Jetta is competitive with rivals like the Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze, and Nissan Sentra.
New Features and Revisions
The Volkswagen Jetta and Jetta GLI are all-new for 2019. Now in its seventh generation and marking 40 years in production, VW’s small sedan returns with slightly larger dimensions, enhanced technology that includes standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, and available driver-assist features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking. The sportier Jetta R-Line is a first for the model.
