2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Volkswagen Jetta

Split screen images of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta

While the Volkswagen Jetta has always seen improvements year to year that have helped it stand out as an attractive sedan model for practical-minded buyers, Volkswagen has long kept its interior and exterior design fairly similar. Compared to the outgoing 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, things have changed quite a bit in terms of interior and exterior design for incoming 2019 Volkswagen Jetta models.

Car shoppers will likely notice some of the exterior changes right away. The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta's side profile is a lot more curved compared to boxier 2018 models and deep contours now line the side panels. LED lighting upgrades and a rear spoiler help round out some of the sportier design enhancements.

Pricing and Standard Features

When comparing incoming models to their outgoing counterparts, we normally need to address the price increase and if it is worth the money based on the new features offered, however, that isn't true in this case. Even with the full redesign and upgraded feature list, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta comes with a starting MSRP that is $100 less than outgoing 2018 Jetta models.

The base S trim on the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is available with a starting MSRP of $18,545. The 2019 Jetta S comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission system, LED lighting, automatic headlights, split-folding rear seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth compatibility, and Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect system, and more.

Like with the previous 2018 Volkswagen Jetta, 2019 configurations will also come standard with the Volkswagen People First Warranty. The People First Warranty provides limited bumper-to-bumper coverage for Volkswagen owners for 72,000 miles or 6 years, whichever occurs first. The coverage is also transferable meaning that if you see your Jetta before the warranty is up, it will automatically transfer to the new owner at no additional cost for the remainder of the original warranty period.
