The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta comes with 5-passenger configuration and the interior space is good. However, the rear legroom could’ve been better and some rival like Toyota Corolla are offering more generous legroom. For a midsize sedan, Jetta’s trunk space score 15.5 cubic feet, and that is a positive thing. The interior looks clean and reminds us of Audi’s interior. Furthermore, it comes with the similar Audi’s Virtual Cockpit. Small changes like adjustable armrest between the two front seats are now standard on all Jetta’s model.

The new 1-touch power operation button for all windows is added as well. The leather seats are not in the standard offer, but Leatherette materials are available. All six trims S, SE, SEL, SEL Premium, and R-Line trims come with a touchscreen audio system that is easy to use.

The audio system is new and is a result of collaboration between two companies, Fender and Panasonic. Fender Premium Audio System comes with 400 watts of power and nine speakers. A subwoofer is mounted into the trunk and this is one of the best audio systems on the market right now. Surely, a huge positive innovation.
