There is no reason that a small car need be a penalty box, and the Jetta is proof. Redesigned for 2019, the Jetta is comfortable, upscale, and athletic. Best of all, it won’t break the bank. Every Jetta has a 147-hp turbocharged inline-four and front-wheel drive. A six-speed manual is standard, and an eight-speed automatic is available. Full LED lights and a state-of-the-art infotainment system are standard, and the top trim has leather seating. A more powerful GLI model is expected for 2020.
