Seaside Volkswagen Shoppers Get Te First Look At The 2019 VW Jetta

If you’ve been searching for a compact sedan with a quiet cabin that includes lots of room to keep passengers comfortable, we think you should take a close look at the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. According to the Seaside area VW dealerships, Jetta owners will enjoy more interior volume than the amount found in some midsize sedans. Plus, the Jetta benefits from Volkswagen’s well-deserved reputation for reliability and a great warranty.

The Volkswagen Jetta is completely redesigned for 2019. The new Jetta is a bit larger than the outgoing model and has a longer wheelbase. You’ll notice styling that’s more exclusive, with a larger grille and a bolder stance that’s bound to get noticed on the road. Front-seat passengers will enjoy the enhanced comfort and greater amount of space.

The lower trim levels are outfitted with a 6.5-inch infotainment display with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The upper trims have an 8-inch touchscreen, along with Digital Cockpit, Volkswagen’s digital gauge cluster that lets the driver customize the screens. Most models come with driver-assist features such as blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation. Finally, the Jetta gets two new trim levels: R-Line and SEL Premium.

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta has garnered positive reviews from the automotive press, with CNET writing: “Tech and comfort are the Jetta's strongest points. ... The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta feels more like a move upscale, rather just than a move up in scale, and is once again a solid choice for an efficient and smart compact sedan.”
