The latest Volkswagen Jetta Autobahn model has become similar to the larger Volkswagen Passat. With this solution, Volkswagen is trying to distance its compact sedan from the Golf, with which the Jetta shares many similar components. The 2019 model has a longer wheelbase than the Volkswagen Golf, thus providing more space in the cabin. In addition, the car began to look more solid, thanks to the shortened rear overhang of the sedan trunk.
The car is built to high standards using high-quality materials. The engine range is as follows:
Intercooled Turbo Premium Unleaded I-4 2.0 L/121 cu in.
Sharp control, similar to Golf.
Since this car uses the same suspension as the Golf, it’s no surprise that the Jetta has the same steady handling as the hatchback. The steering mechanism is sharp and all the engines have a lot of power, although the 2-liter engine should work well to show all that it is capable of.
The extended wheelbase increases comfort.
The size of the Volkswagen Jetta makes it easy to maneuver on city streets. Driving even on highways remains comfortable. Transitions are smooth and fast. The new six-speed manual transmission is also very pleasant to use.
Passengers in the front seats are in the same comfortable and high-quality interior as the Golf, while the rear has more space for passengers. The Jetta has a wheelbase 73 mm longer than the Golf. This creates more legroom for the rear passengers, which also means that the Jetta has become more comfortable for long trips.
The interior of the five-seat Jetta remains European-style simple. The controls for audio, climate control, and other functions are designed in a minimalist style, and they are easy to use.
In the exterior of the car, you will not see an impressive design or trendy elements.
The Jetta uses the same platform as the Golf, which received five Euro NCAP stars in the safety rating. All engines, gearboxes and other parts of the Jetta have already been tested and tested throughout the entire VW range, so the question of reliability should not arise in principle.
Large trunk, but the hatchback is more multi-functional.
The 510-liter trunk is 160 liters larger than the Golf, and is only 55 liters smaller than the larger Passat. In addition, there are convenient things in the trunk, such as a hook for bags and a 12-volt plug for charging.
The sedan is cheaper than the Golf.
The Jetta is cheaper than the equivalent Golf, so you get a larger cabin for your money. All cars are equipped with air conditioning and electric windows on all doors. Models of the Autobahn specification received chrome trim, sports seats and a lower sports suspension.
In General, the car turned out to be functional, without pretentiousness and pathos. This means that it will definitely find its fans in the market.
