Since its creation way back in 1979, the beloved Volkswagen Jetta has been a huge hit with drivers and critics. The compact sedan has been hailed year after year for its fuel efficiency, fun European handling and VW reliability. After tens of millions of Jettas sold worldwide, one might think VW would rest on its laurels and not tinker with the compact sedan's tried and true formula.


Not content with standing still, VW has pushed forward and forged a totally redesigned Jetta, and the results are nothing short of exhilarating. VW has produced the sportiest and sleekest Jetta design yet, with strong lines and a sculpted hood that means business. The all-new design makes a bold statement, but it's so classy and refined that it doesn't need to scream for attention. The 2019 Jetta proves that luxurious looks don't need to come with a luxury sedan price tag.


The Jetta's overhaul isn't just a mere facelift with a few pretty tweaks on the outside. With passengers' comfort in mind, VW made the new model wider, taller as well as 1.3 inches longer. The cabin is more spacious than ever so you - and your passengers - may for the first time ever wish your commute was just a little bit longer.



Of course, the new Jetta's beauty isn't only skin deep. The old adage is true - it's what's on the inside is what matters. While most other compact sedans charge a premium to upgrade to a turbocharged engine, it comes standard on the 2019 Jetta. VW believes that performance should come standard, and that's why the Jetta keeps coming out ahead.


Under each 2019 Jetta hood is VW's meticulously crafted 1.4L TSI, 16-valve, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with direct injection and intercooler. This technical marvel not only churns out an admirable 147 HP and a whopping 184 lb.-ft. of torque, but even with the more spacious 2019 body, it achieves even better fuel efficiency than the 2018 Jetta: up to 30 mpg city and a truly amazing 40 mpg highway!*


The Jetta's turbo engine sets a new benchmark for performance and efficiency, proving once and for all that you shouldn't have to choose between the two. And whichever transmission you choose, the standard 6-speed manual or smooth-shifting, all-new 8-speed automatic, you get the same great gas mileage.



Updated looks and performance are certainly at the forefront of the Jetta's redesign, but look closer and you'll see a lot more going on. The 2019 model is filled to the brim with handy and cool technology features that you'll love.


The redesigned lights on the new Jetta not only look fantastic, of course. But the available LED headlights and taillights are also efficient and long-lasting. And speaking of light, the available panoramic power sunroof is even larger this year, letting even more natural sunlight into your Jetta if that's your style.


The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is now available in the 2019 Jetta and it offers a jumbo 10" wide digital screen that displays your information in crisp high resolution. It also keeps you in total control of your experience, as you can customize what's displayed by choosing from six different information profiles.


Also available is an 8" touchscreen navigation panel, which is a sleek glass display that truly brings maps to life. The dynamic route guidance assists you with turn-by-turn information, keeping you more connected to the journey ahead.


VW's first 10-color customizable interior ambient lighting in the 2019 Jetta is sure to be a hit with you and your passengers. This available feature can change the mood inside instantly, offering 10 vivid colors ranging from cheery orange to cool, icy blue. After experiencing Jetta's ambient lighting, every other cabin you step into will seem a little too ho-hum.


What good is a road trip without great music? The 2019 Jetta is the first VW in the U.S. ever to offer BeatsAudio. This available 400-watt audio system was built for music fanatics and true to its Beats name, it will delight you with crisp and powerful music you can feel, not just hear. Like a mobile upscale music hall, every seat in the Jetta is like the best seat in the house.



The most precious feature of any 2019 Jetta is the people inside it, and that's why it was designed with your safety in mind. Each Jetta is built with a rigid safety cage with front and rear crumple zones that help absorb crash energy where it counts and helps deflect it away from you and your passengers. They also come with VW's Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, which helps slow the vehicle down after a collision and reduces the chance of any additional impacts.


A full line of available high-tech safety features are offered with the 2019 Jetta, including:


Blind Spot Monitor - Ever wish you had eyes in the back of your head? This available feature is the next best thing, detecting when a vehicle enters your blind spot and giving you a visual warning on your side mirrors.


Lane Assist - This available feature can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using your turn signal. It can even help steer you automatically - and safely - back into your lane if you drift out.


Adaptive Cruise Control - This available system helps your Jetta maintain a predetermined distance and speed from the car in front of you. If the vehicle in front of you slows down or speeds up, your Jetta can follow suit. It can even brake, stop and resume movement with the detected vehicle you're following.


Rear Traffic Alert - This available feature senses vehicles crossing your rear path when your Jetta is in reverse and gives you an audible and visual alert. It can even help brake if needed to avoid a collision.


With its beefed up performance, efficiency, technology and safety, the 2019 Jetta has reinvented the wheel…again. And it looks even better doing it with its chiseled new design. Models will be available for sale soon, but why wait to check one out in person? Darling's Volkswagen in Bangor has one on hand for a sneak peek right now, so you should take it for a test drive today, because driving is believing!
