Already one of the most affordable German sedans in the North American market, the Volkswagen Jetta entered its seventh generation in 2019, moving beyond its success to a new level of satisfaction with revised styling, more interior space, expanded equipment and upgraded technologies. The front-wheel drive Jetta is now powered by Volkswagen?s 1.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine, generating 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque mated to either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. Trim specific standard equipment includes 16- or 17-inch aluminum wheels, heated mirrors, a power sunroof, LED headlights and daytime running lights, heated front bucket seats, automatic dual-zone climate control, SiriusXM HD satellite radio, 9 BeatsAudio speakers, a 400W amplifier, Bluetooth and an 8-inch touchscreen display. Safety features such as six airbags, a rear view camera, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist and Automatic Post-Collision braking are standard while a Blind Spot Monitor, Front Assist w/Autonomous Emergency Braking, Rear Traffic Alert are available. The SEL w/ULEV and SEL Premium trims also add a distance pacing cruise control system and a Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist). The Jetta carries over with minimal changes for 2020.
