Volkswagen Jetta Makes Bold Showing at North American International Auto Show

Volkswagen Jetta Makes Bold Showing at North American International Auto Show

Inside, the 2019 Jetta's interior features more soft-touch materials throughout with new trapezoidal design elements.

The Jetta also gets several new safety features. The Jetta's new design includes a large front grille aimed at presenting what VW called "bold character".

Outside, the grille has grown, while the crease lines on the vehicle are sharper and bolder.

This year, VW is refocused on cars, introducing the seventh generation of the all-new '19 Jetta, a compact vehicle the automaker promises will raise the bar for its bold design, innovative technology and upscale drive-centric interior.

Mr Trump has been a constant critic of the media during his presidency, dubbing many mainstream outlets as "fake news ". The House has unveiled an immigration bill one day after a lengthy meeting between lawmakers and the president.

Jetta now rides on the same corporate MQB platform as the new Golf, Audi TT and A3.

Even though the 2019 Jetta is bigger inside and out, sportier, and bolder than its most recent predecessor, it cost less - approximately $18,545 less. Dual-zone automatic climate control can be added, while Driver Personalization for up to four individuals is standard. The fully redesigned interior puts an emphasis on everyday usability and refined fit and finish, with new fabric colors and optional 10-color customizable wrap-around ambient lighting. LED lighting is now standard across the lineup, and SEL and SEL Premium trims get Volkswagen's Digital Cockpit display. The new Jetta is the first Volkswagen in the U.S.to offer an available 400-watt BeatsAudio® system. It will continue to be equipped with the brand's 150-hp 1.4-liter turbocharged I-4 engine, but it will now be mated to either an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox. Regardless of which you choose, under the hood is a 147-horsepower, 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that sends its power to the front wheels. Arriving at US showrooms in the second quarter, the new Jetta will be available in S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium trim levels. Other tech on offer includes Volkswagen Car-Net, which has a selection of connected vehicle services, along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink.

In addition to onboard safety systems such as automatic post collision braking, the 2019 Jetta can be had with a bevy of driver aids: forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and active lane control that will steer the auto back into lane.

Also standard with the automatic is a stop/start system, which VW says contributes to fuel economy.
