2019 VW Jetta Specs


There’s a lot of excitement around the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta this year, and that’s because this popular VW sedan has been fully redesigned this year. The 2019 Jetta release date was a big event for the team at Volkswagen Santa Monica, where people came from Culver City and the surrounding areas for the VW Jetta launch party. See what auto publications are saying in early 2019 VW Jetta first drive reviews, and then make your way into our dealership to see it for yourself!

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.”

At Volkswagen Santa Monica, we’ve got a wide inventory of vehicles with distinct names in our Venice area showroom, but what do they mean? Volkswagen, itself, means “the people’s car” in German, and speaks to the popularity of this brand. Many of the current model names also have interesting, unique meanings:

  • Beetle: This iconic VW vehicle received its current name from its unique shape resembling the bug — although most don’t know it was originally called the Volkswagen Type 1.

  • CC: The recently retired VW CC is one of the more straightforward VW names, meaning “Comfort Coupe”.

  • Eos: This convertible is named after the Greek goddess for dawn, since the convertible offers unbeatable views of our mountainous skyline.

  • Golf: The Golf is named for the natural occurring Gulf Stream.

  • Jetta: This name translates to “jet stream,” hinting at its sporty performance.

  • Tiguan: This spacious SUV’s name comes from a combo of “tiger” and “leguan”, which means “iguana” in German.

  • Touareg: This VW SUV was named after the nomadic Tuareg people of the Saharan desert — encouraging you to go on adventures to new destinations.
