2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Volkswagen Jetta

New for the 2019 model year is a compact sedan that has already won over the hearts of many. While it has been made popular due to its utility and stylish exterior, the newest Jetta has been redesigned to look even better. Complete with a new Volkswagen Transverse Matrix (MQB) design, the 2019 Jetta has a number of new features made both standard and available. See what they are here as we investigate the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Volkswagen Jetta!

Despite being a compact sedan, the new Jetta is a little bigger than the previous model. With more headroom and legroom for each passenger, the ride is about to be a lot more comfortable for everyone. What’s perhaps most interesting, though, is the fact that the redesigned Jetta has a lower MSRP than the 2018 model. This isn’t very common for new vehicles. How else do they compare?
