The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta was one of the biggest, most important reveals of the last North American International Auto Show, and with good reason. The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a big deal, firstly because it’s one of the most popular models in its segment, but also because its owners tend to be very loyal too. As the only German-engineered vehicle in its segment, the Jetta has always had a little something more than its rivals from a variety of standpoints.
These include drivability, refinement, interior luxury, handling, efficiency, and design. With the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, VW sets the bar even higher.
An Incredibly Efficient Engine in the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta
The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is remarkably efficient in so many ways. For starters, it will get the same 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that powers the current Jetta. It’s no surprise that VW chose this engine to power its next-gen Jetta as it offers 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, the latter being among the highest found in an entry-level engine in the compact sedan segment.
This engine can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but you can also get an 8-speed automatic one, another rare find in this category. With the 8-speed auto gearbox, what you get is an incredibly efficient transmission that is also able to perfectly manage the turbo’s impressive torque.
The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will be built on VW’s MQB modular platform which will translate into improved handling, better safety, and more interior space. The car will feel even more planted and sharp out on the road, but it will also offer a lot more versatility.
Ultimately, you will feel like you are in a vehicle that costs a lot more than it actually does when you are driving the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. And that is why the Jetta has been and will continue to be this popular.
