The new Volkswagen Jetta is said to have come out much better than before for its 2019-year edition. Surprisingly enough, it has become more affordable, more efficient, and smarter with the heavy tech installed within. But what raises its popularity is its revving performance that didn‘t compromise with its fuel efficiency.
Power to Perform
At the Bakersfield Volkswagen, we saw the 2019 VW Jetta with a turbocharged, 1.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine, the 2019 Jetta can be packed with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission that can make a 147 of horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. The power gets smoothly relayed on to the road with the front wheels and the Jetta picks up the momentum smoothly and moves with a tranquility that is rare to be found in its class. The throttle response is surprisingly good, that will make you wonder how can such a small displacement engine move this quite big a car so swiftly.
The 2019 Jetta is a good example of clever engineering through the way it drives. With a responsive suspension and lightweight steering, the movements are quicker and sporty. The turbocharged 1.4-liter engine seems to be peppy enough to pass on the power straight on the road. With a not-so-impressive 147 horsepower, and a modestly accumulated 184 pound-feet of torque, the new 2019 model of Jetta is able to bring up a revving performance. Thanks to the quick-shifting eight-speed automatic gearbox that can make this wonder take place, though for the driving thrill many want to go with the standard six-speed manual that is available in the lower trim levels.
High Fuel Efficiency
It was a clever decision of Volkswagen to keep the engine power not to soar high, as the aim was to provide high maneuverability without compromising the fuel efficiency. The plan was highly successful, as with the correct tricks played at the background, the 2019 Jetta does a fantastic job of earning high score in the EPA ratings for its fuel economy.
Precisely, the Jetta is right now topping its class in terms of fuel efficiency. It is able to crack a 30 mpg in the city roads, 40 mpg on consistent highway drives, and can bag 34 mpg in a trip that combines.
Some said that with the manual six-speed transmission, driving was more fun and soulful in the latest Jetta because the Jetta never wanted to make you feel that it is a mere commodity of transport and you cannot have all those fun while driving one.
The experts at VW Bakersfield said that observing the different driving habits meeting the situations and challenges, Volkswagen has allowed enough freedom inside the Jetta to drive as per your mood and convenience. Starting from the Eco, you can choose to drive in Sport, Normal or Custom modes which will be fun to observe when it changes the ride quality and even the response. Comfort overpowers the harshness of driving through the torsion-beam rear suspension, while the sporty features captivates the highest potential of the trio of steering, throttle and suspension, giving this new 2019 version of Jetta a ride that will make the picture perfect.
