Is the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta a Good Car?

In a word…Yes. But why? Think versatility. The Jetta gets good fuel economy, provides a smooth ride, is equipped with a user-friendly infotainment system, and has excellent trunk space for a small sedan.

Under the Hood & Performance

The VW Jetta gets outstanding fuel economy for a nonhybrid car in any class. The unprecedented 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway, puts the Jetta at the top of the class.

You can expect the Jetta to handle the winding roads of Central, PA with extreme confidence. You will see very little rolling around turns, keeping you safe, especially during those winter months.

What’s On The Inside?

The four-door sedan seats five people comfortably. The seating inside the Jetta is perfect for long drives with ample space in both rows.

Inside the cabin, you will be blown away by quiet highway speeds and features many soft-touch materials, that help its visual appeal.

The Cargo Space inside the Jetta is a hair over 14 cubic feet of cargo space. In simpler terms, it has enough room for about 10 pieces of carry on luggage. That’s class leading for this sedan. In addition, you can fold down the rear seats if you need to carry some larger cargo.

The Jetta comes loaded with some high end comfort features like; the MIB II infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touch screen, four speakers, a USB port, Bluetooth, and VW Car-Net App-Connect, which includes connectivity options like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.

It expands on available driver assistance with features like automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control. Rounding out the final stretch of safety features are the lane keep assist, lane departure warning and autonomous emergency braking, for those must stop moments.

The Verdict Is In

This Jetta is precise, smooth and trustworthy, which is underscored by the VW People First warranty that covers the Jetta, “bumper to bumper”, for 6 years/72,000 miles. The 2019 Toyota Corolla will only cover you for 3 years/36,000 miles, making Volkswagen and the Jetta the more trusted brand.

So get in, just go and enjoy the journey.
