Car and Driver 2019 Jetta Review

“All the pleasure from rowing your own gears is present and accounted for, with progressive clutch takeup and a nicely weighted shifter. The automatic has also been upgraded from six speeds to eight, helping the 2019 Jetta to now earn the same EPA fuel-economy estimates regardless of transmission choice: 30 mpg city**, 40 [mpg] highway**, and 34 [mpg] combined**. While the automatic car is inherently less fun to drive, this new transmission shifts quickly and smartly, plus it offers manual control as in other Volkswagen [models], by sliding the gear lever to the side and pushing fore and aft.”

Motor Trend 2019 Jetta Review

“Driven with just two adults onboard, passing performance feels acceptable and the acceleration rate at medium and wide throttle openings seemed more linear than we’ve experienced with other engines with tiny turbos. […] The new transmission reacts swiftly to throttle inputs, especially in its S mode.

Edmunds 2019 Jetta Review

“As we mentioned in our First Look, the 2019 Jetta has grown in every dimension. The wheelbase is longer, and the car is also taller, longer and wider overall. These increases generally translate into more interior room, bringing the Jetta’s cabin in line with today’s much less economy-size compact cars.”
