2019 Volkswagen Jetta engine options
The Jetta has built its own platform upon the pillars of performance and efficiency. Though there are five trim levels, there is one engine available. Every new Jetta comes with a 147-horsepower, 1.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that produces 184 pound-foot of torque at 1,400 RPM. The car only comes available with front-wheel drive, but there is some deciding to do when it comes to the transmission. Drivers can select either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic with auto-manual capabilities. Not much has changed performance-wise for the Jetta from last year, and that should be seen as a good thing. Drivers have always enjoyed the feel of the Jetta’s drive, and that will continue this year.
