DETROIT — The Garden Theater along Woodward Avenue in Midtown hosted Volkswagen’s debut of the 2019 Jetta Sunday evening to an audience of industry representatives. The event was part of scattered, continuing ceremonies that marked the first day of an unveiling week for the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
Showcasing a blue coating and what was mentioned by media release as a “Sleek coupe-like exterior design,” the vehicle maintains a dashboard and interior seating of lighter tones that balance with the outside choice well. Provided bites in the release by North American Region CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken praise the vehicle’s “sporty styling, upscale interior and amenities, and fun-to-drive nature” as estimated factors in the model’s anticipated popularity when released on the market.
Amongst such Jetta features noted in said release was the car’s reliance on Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) architecture.
Also confirmed was the inclusion of a 1.4-liter TSI engine, which will provide 147 horsepower and a torque of 184. This is paired with the dual options of a six-speed manual transmission or eight-speed automatic depending on the choice of four trim levels.
Starting near $18.5 thousand, the Jetta will be paired with a People First Warranty offering that allows coverage that lasts up to either six years or 72,000 miles. The 2019 edition is expected to reach dealers within the second quarter of 2018.
