/New Volkswagen Jetta - Reimagined Sedan - Volkswagen of Inver Grove
Twin Cities drivers have called the Jetta one of their own. It is a sedan that offers everyone a great German-engineered car that fits their lives perfectly. You see Jettas everywhere around here. Maybe you own one.
The Jetta was developed through a very extensive reimagination from the ground up. The MQB platform from the Golf to the Atlas provided the framework to create a sedan that would change the perception of previous Jetta. The flexibility of the platform enables a larger car feel for the freeway but is small enough for great mobility around town.
The Jetta signals a major change in the direction of Volkswagen design. There is a sculptured look that starts with a large grille framed by new LED lighting units, stretching along a scalloped side profile, a sleeker roofline, and an enhanced rear end. The Jetta also rides on a longer wheelbase of 105.7 inches, providing more interior room and a more refined ride. The Jetta exudes a premium look that will set it apart from the competition.
What will wow existing Volkswagen owners is the new interior design. There is a new premium feel inside with higher-quality materials and better touch points all around. This will be the first Jetta to offer the Digital Cockpit display standard on SEL and SEL Premium models. The MIB II screen is more integrated and raised to the same eye level as the instrumentation binnacle. Expect higher content across the board including a wider standard feature list full of upgrades compared to the current Jetta lineup.
Not to mention, there will be some other features never before offered in the Jetta. This includes a 10-color ambient lighting that surrounds the cabin with any mood you want. Also, BeatsAudio will provide the top speaker set-up through a 400-watt system fed through strategically positioned sound throughout the cabin. This will be the first Volkswagen to offer a BeatsAudio system.
Volkswagen Jetta GLI
This is no mere "sedan version of the Golf GTI" anymore. The Jetta GLI is its own performance sedan forged from the best Volkswagen has to offer.
With its 228-horsepower EA888 2.0-liter turbocharged TSI engine, choice of manual or DSG gearboxes, and beefier brakes from the Golf R, The GLI rides on 18-inch tires designed for better performance and handling.
Standard features on the 2019 Jetta GLI include: front and rear LED lighting, 10-color ambient lighting, dual-zone Climatronic, Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert. Available premium features include Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated leather seats, DCC adaptive damping, and BeatsAudio sound system.

Power Choices For The Jetta
The 1.4-liter TSI turbocharged engine will power five models for S, SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and R-Line. Standard is a six-speed manual transmission, while a majority of models will receive an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission. The latter will improve fuel economy and provide the TSI engine with more flexibility on the highway and around town.
GLI models are powered by a 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged engine. You can choose between a six-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG gearbox.
With a lot of premium features and upgrades in this new Jetta, you may expect to pay more for one. Pricing for the Jetta starts at $18,895.
