30/40 mpg city/highway thanks to an upgraded drivetrain and improved aero. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – March 13, 2017 2019 VW Jetta The all-new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will arrive this summer sporting a 30/40 mpg city/highway rating. The improvements were achieved while the all-new seventh-generation Jetta grew in most dimensions from its predecessor. The Jetta’s exterior including the underbody has been reshaped for improved aerodynamics. New to this Jetta are shutters in the front grille that close at certain speeds when the engine needs less airflow, and a passive “air curtain” design in the front bumper that lowers turbulence over the wheels. Underbody panels have been sculpted to help ensure suspension components don’t create unnecessary air obstructions, and the rear styling helps smooth the airflow further. The all-new Jetta’s exterior now has a coefficient of drag of just 0.27. And the drivetrain improvements? The 1.4-liter TSI engine from the EA211 family has also been further optimized for efficiency including a clutch-driven air conditioner that reduces pumping losses, a more efficient generator and a lower kinematic viscosity grade of oil. The stop/start system that is standard on 2019 Jettas with an automatic transmission shuts off the engine at appropriate times, is designed to help to reduce fuel consumption in stop-and-go traffic by as much as 6 percent. Another major boost comes from the new 8-speed AT, which provides a wider band of drive ratios that allow more efficient running at higher speeds That power will hit the pavement through a new selection of low rolling-resistance tires that, while slightly larger than the tires on the previous model year Jetta, reduce resistance by up to 25 percent without sacrificing handling. Expect the Jetta’s std. superior R&H quality but with an efficiency boost and larger interior volume. Inside the all-new 2019 Jetta Every 2019 Jetta model will arrive with the People First Warranty, America’s best bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. The New Vehicle Limited Warranty provides coverage for six-years or 72,000-miles (whichever occurs first), and the warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout the remainder of its duration. The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will be available in S, SE, R-Line, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels and is expected to arrive at U.S. Volkswagen dealers in the second quarter of 2018.
