The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is on the way, and there are some exciting changes in store for 2019! With a decidedly different front end, updated grille, a faster rear roofline and hood strakes that look strikingly similar to the Audi A5, the 2019 Jetta is big leap from the Jetta's of the past as far as appearances go. Under the hood, the 2019 Jetta has a single engine option - a turbocharged 147 horsepower 1.4-liter inline-four engine, though Volkswagen did keep the option for a manual transmission intact, which comes as standard on the base model. Inside the cabin, VW has added more color choices for fabrics, a more noticable stitch pattern and the option for 10-color customizable wraparound ambient lighting, along with some other exciting amenities.
