Big Changes Are Coming for the 2019 VW Jetta
2019 Volkswagen Jetta updates and pricing
Volkswagen has long been known for a brand that offers compact solutions and a premium feel. Both these reputations are combining as the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta receives a much-needed update for the start of its seventh generations. Today, we’re looking at some of the key changes along with pricing for the base model. We think you’ll be as excited as we are.
Differences between the 2018 and 2019 VW Jetta
So what are the main differences for the upcoming model year? First, you’ll notice that the vehicle is completely different in appearance, as it will be based on the MQB architecture. It is wider, longer and taller, has a chiseled good, a more robust chrome grille and fresh aluminum-alloy wheels. LED lighting is now standard, plus App-Connect and driver personalization settings.
These new features, along with more premium materials on the interior, helps make the VW Jetta more upscale than it already was. Does this mean you can expect a price jump? As it turns out, the base model is receiving a price decrease, dropping $100 to a starting MSRP of $18,545. There’s no word on pricing for other trims, but we do know there will be an S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium trim, along with an R-Line that will be announced at a later date. It’s unclear if the GLI will remain, or even if we’ll continue seeing the 1.8-liter and 2.0-liter engine options. Though we hope so.
Available features will include Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor and other driver assistance features, heated and ventilated leather seats, a 400-watt BeatsAudio System, 10-color ambient lighting and more.
We expect the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta to come to dealerships in the second quarter of 2018, which is sometime between April and June. Once we know more, we’ll be updating here at the Kuhn Volkswagen Blog so stay tuned.
