2019 Volkswagen Jetta U.S. Trim Rundown



Volkswagen’s Jetta is just a tad more affordable for the 2019 model year with a starting price of $18,545 in the United States. That’s $100 less compared to the outgoing entry-level S model, and those interested should be able to get their hands on one in the second half of 2018.

Though it may be the most affordable trim in the lineup, the Jetta S comes with ample standard equipment including a six-speed manual gearbox, a set of 16-inch ‘Rama’ alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, chrome grille, multi-function steering wheel, rearview camera, automatic headlights, electric parking brake, cloth seats and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen infotainment system. Those who prefer an automatic transmission will need to pay $19,345 and there’s even a Driver’s Assistance Package for just $450 more.

One step up is the $22,155 Jetta SE, which comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, keyless access and push-button start, heated seats and more.

For $22,995, the Jetta R-Line sits on a set of 17-inch dark grey ‘Trenton’ alloys. Giving it a more aggressive look, the wheels are combined with a gloss-black front grille, R-Line rear bumper with dual exhaust, black mirror caps, two-tone black and grey upholstery, and R-Line badging.

Similar to the R-Line, the $24,415 SEL trim features everything the SE trim has in addition to LED projector headlights, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Drive Mode Selection, 10.25-inch digital cockpit display, 400-Watt BeatsAudio system, etc.

The range topping SEL Premium model will set you back $26,945 and it will come with the Cold Weather Package, side mirrors with integrated turn signals, ventilated front seats, and more. CarScoops took the liberty of listing every feature each trim offer.

The SE trim seems to have everything I need with the push button start, heated seats, and panoramic roof. Everything else is just a bonus, but it is a good $3,000 more than the base model.

VW was smart to bring the baseline price just slightly under what's found in its rivals. I think that will help to generate a lot of interest in their new model, and from there they can try to upsell on the higher trims.

Its just for marketing power, just about all car makers in the same segments price close enough to eachother to the point price isn't important but which brand and features you prefer.

That's not entirely true. The Accord is having an extremely difficult time selling, due the fact that the Camry is offered at cheaper financing/leasing rates. Everyone is looking for the best value for their money.

Pretty sure that a GLI variant has all but been confirmed for the 2019 Jetta as well. Autoblog reports that it should return within the year. VW enthusiasts will be happy to hear that the new Jetta GLI will ditch the torsion beam rear suspension, and go with a proper multi link arrangement. This should greatly improve its performance in the twists and turns.

Not that much of a problem to anyone who has a budge that allows them to upgrade to a Passat. Right now that's the shift going on, so much overseas that Jetta production over their might end.

The Jetta has already been confirmed to be discontinued in the UK. And its obvious from the redesign and pricing of the new model, that they are doing everything they can to help it sell in North America.

It looks like VW is also stepping up the power found in the performance trims over the outgoing models. Hopefully the jump in price isn't too significant, as there is some incredible value found in the latest offerings from Honda and Toyota.

The Accord actually sees some pretty impressive performance figures with Hondata's latest tune. I believe they were able to get the torque numbers up to what's found in the Type R.
