2019 Jetta vs 2018 Golf Alltrack

The Fast Lane car dropped a new video which compares old vs new. One of the main differences between these models is obviously the improved styling, and they also do a 1/4 mile drag race. The Jetta struggles against the AWD Alltrack, but that's to be expected. Also a solid overview of the new features/improvements on the brand new Jetta.

I don't really think quarter mile performance times are of much interest to most VW customers. I think one of the most important things to take from this video is that both models actually delivered on their advertised EPA figures, with the new Jetta hitting 40 mpg.

It looks like VW will be shifting the focus of their Golf models towards efficiency as well. They've just announced that from 2019 onwards the Golf will be using the same powerplant that's found in the Jetta, which drops power output by 22hp.

Any drops in engine output will probably be addressed with their new mild hybrid systems. Their push for efficiency makes sense, as that's become a key selling point for the new Jetta.

I remember seeing talk about the new 48V mild-hybrid system. Its part of a new mainstream approach VW is going after last I heard.

Anyone who has an interest in a proper performance hatch will just go with the Golf R anyways. To be honest this move more feels like a response to the growing difficulty the company has had with new emission regulations.

I just see it as another Camry which isn't a bad thing. If you look at that segment, its booming from all angles with regular consumers and even fleets.
VW's goal should be to get more new Jetta's in fleets than the last. Don't be surprised if your next Uber/Lyft ride is an MK7
