All-new Jetta Debuting at Detroit Auto Show

Volkswagen is keeping pretty tight-lipped about its plans for the all-new Jetta prior to its debut at the upcoming North American International Auto Show in Detroit, but the company has released some sketches that promise the popular sedan will be sporting a futuristic look. As the best-selling German car in America for many years, the Jetta  has offered affordable quality with a sporty drive. The 2019 model promises something special, as the company moves the VW Jetta to its innovative MQB chassis, which sits under the well-reviewed Golf. Stay in touch with Chapman VW Tucson to see when the first new Jetta will be available for a test drive.

MQB Offers Vehicle Versatility

It’s fair to say at some point almost all the VW lineup will be based on the Modularer Querbaukasten (MQB) chassis, which sets down some hard points in the production line that are common across all vehicles. The standardization will improve efficiency and quality across the line, allowing integration of different components as large as engines and transmissions. This ability to switch vehicle production on the fly will save the company, and presumably consumers, in the long run while allowing VW to increase output on popular vehicles while decreasing the production of those that aren’t selling so well.

Jetta Racking Up Miles in Maricopa

During its development, the 2019 Jetta has been racking up millions of miles on the Jetta prototype to make sure it can handle heat, corrosion and other factors that can only be tested in the desert track in nearby Maricopa. Motor Trend magazine was among a group of journalists invited to test the new Jetta recently. They liked the way it handled, noting that the new Jetta will have a full I-beam in the rear as opposed to the current independent rear suspension. The new setup provides firmer handling, much like the popular Golf.

Catch the 2018 Jetta Now

If you can’t wait for the new model to come to Chapman VW Tucson around the third quarter of this year, check out the large inventory of 2018 VW Jetta sedans. Starting at just $18,645, the Jetta comes in six different trim packages, topping out at the turbocharged GLI. If efficiency is your goal, the S, Wolfsburg Edition and SE models are powered by a 1.4L turbocharged engine that rates up to 40 mpg on the highway. All the Jetta models are covered by Volkswagen’s People First Warranty, which provides peace of mind for 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. That’s double the warranty of most competitors, proving VW’s confidence of the durability of its complete lineup.
