2019 Jetta First Drive Reviews

So it looks like reviews are beginning to come in for the next generation Jetta. Looks like they are impressed with the new platform, entry level price and the new warranty that comes standard. They noted that nearly every aspect has been improved over the outgoing model, with better driving characteristics all around. Looking forward to seeing the GLI.

Still not sure if VW has done enough with the new Jetta, to help it succeed in a declining segment. I'm glad to hear that there will be more significant changes coming from the GLI variant.

I've seen a lot of reviews that are indicating the new Jetta is basically a bigger Golf with a trunk, suggesting that despite the improvements VW has made with the new model, its more or less of the same. Think it might be worthwhile to wait out the higher performance models.

The higher performance models probably wont be able to deliver the same fuel economy though, so that's going to be the trade off. I think a lot of people are going to be interested in the base model for the price and efficiency that it offers.

If VW can get in the business of offering attainable performance models running a hybrid setup that's a scale down version of some hypercars like the McLaren P1 then fuel economy won't be an issue.
Too bad that Audi will likely have a go at it well before VW is given the chance unless VW plans on pulling some surprises.

Its worth noting that unlike its rivals, the new Jetta doesn't have an fuel economy hoops to jump though. Fuel economy can usually vary quite considerably by trim level, engine and tranny, like with the latest Civic where those figures can differ by as much as 4mpg. But with the Jetta any trim level with either manual or automatic, will be EPA rated at 34mpg combined.
