The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is finally here! After much anticipation and talk, the new Jetta released just a few short days ago! Now, drivers can finally experience for themselves the wonder of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta redesign. Additionally, an official release means that all information on the new 2019 VW Jetta redesign is out and accessible. No more surprises are in store. We can see how the new redesign of the VW Jetta compares to its competition.

So, what competition have we chosen today? Well, here at VW of Salem County, we've previously compared the Jetta to the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla, and the Nissan Sentra. However, to celebrate its new model, we need some new blood to compare against the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. That would be the Mazda3. It's the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs the 2018 Mazda3! Which is the superior sedan?

The 2018 Mazda3 holds its own pretty well but can't help but be beat by the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta in a few key areas. Sure, the 2018 Mazda3 has a bit more horsepower and a slightly lower price, but the 2019 VW Jetta has far more torque and a superior fuel economy. The 2018 Mazda3 doesn't even have a larger fuel tank to make up for its lower combined fuel rating, meaning its driving range is substantially lower when compared to the 2019 Jetta. Additionally, along with its sleek redesign, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is fitted with plenty of improved tech, including:

  • Cross Differential System XDS®
  • Rearview Camera System
  • Heated Seats
  • 10-Color Customizable Interior Ambient Lighting
  • Climatronic® Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
  • Keyless Access with Push-Button Start
  • Driver Personalization Profiles
  • Beats™ Audio System
  • Available Ventilated Leather Seating
  • Illuminated Fog Lights with Low-Speed Feature
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • And more!
