2019 Volkswagen Jetta Prototype

2019 Volkswagen Jetta PrototypeAnd yet, here we are. Invited to a place we’ve never been before — although relieved of our cameras and smartphones, for security purposes. Now, other manufacturers have had us to their secret proving grounds on similar adventures, but Volkswagen hasn’t in recent memory. At a minimum, it’s an usual move for an automaker entailing lots of risk that we might see something before we’re supposed to. It’s fascinating to take a peek behind the curtain.

Under the hood we know that an updated version of the base 1.4-liter turbocharged engine will carry over, and will come paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. A modest bump in horsepower is also expected throughout the range, including the base 150-horsepower option, as well as a slight price hike.

The 2019 Jetta will be based on the MQB platform, which is also the basis for the VW Golf and Audi A3. The existing 1.4L turbocharged engine will carryover with a few extra horses and will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. If you want more power, the Jetta GLI will make a return about a year after the standard Jetta arrives.

After a few hours behind the wheel, the Jetta made a positive impact. The new MQB platform works wonders on the overall dynamics, giving the Jetta a more premium driving feel in a segment that continually skews more upscale. Provided that the styling and equipment is up to par with the competition, and that the price tag doesn’t move much – VW promises that it won’t – leaders like the Honda Civic and Mazda3 should have their work cut out for them when the new Jetta goes on sale.
