2019 Volkswagen Jetta Roanoke VA

2019 Volkswagen Jetta parked next to city sidewalk

When it was first released to the U.S., the Volkswagen Jetta was seen as an alternative to the Volkswagen Golf, then called the Rabbit. The design was very much the same, except it was a sedan instead of a hatchback. These days, the model is very different in appearance, though both vehicles have their share of fans. For the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, which has now arrived at your Roanoke, VA dealership, the updated design is as impressive as the recent one of the Passat.

You’ll notice first the changes to the appearance of the 2019 VW Jetta. The bumper is more aggressive and has a deep “v” appearance below a more robust four-bar chrome grille. This grill is bookmarked by two slim C-shaped headlights, with chiseled lines down the hood seeming to draw your gaze from the windshield down to the grille. It’s not that the previous design wasn’t attractive, but the update is more aggressive in its appearance.

What’s new for the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta?

A redesign is different from a “refresh” or “facelift” in that it isn’t just about a new, updated look. That just happens to be part of it. The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta experiences a variety of changes, from its move to the award-winning MQB platform, to the standard six-speed manual transmission or available eight-speed automatic. These are upgrades from a standard five-speed manual transmission or available six-speed automatic found in the 2018 model year Jetta.

A new platform, fresh design and updated transmission options already make up quite a lot of changes, but what about features? All of the following are standards found in the base S trim:

  • Cruise control
  • Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect
  • Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, MirrroLink
  • Driver personalization
  • Bluetooth
  • Rearview camera
  • Automatic headlights
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen display.

There are five total trim levels for the 2019 model year, with plenty of features stacked on top of these standards. Find out more when you stop by First Team Volkswagen for a test drive.
