The main focus of all changes made to the exterior to improve the aerodynamic performance of the machine for the reduction of fuel consumption, which fell by around 5 – 10 percent.
Generational change absolutely no effect on the overall dimensions of the sedan 2018-2019 Volkswagen Jetta model year.
Its length remains at 464.4 cm, width reaches 177.8 centimeters and a height of not more than 148.2 centimeters.
Under wheelbase allocated 265.1 centimeters and a height clearance is 16 centimeters.
Depending on the version of the model equipment curb weight ranges from 1295 to 1350-ti-ti kilogram.
Saloon car, having a classic five-seat configuration, has changed much more serious, so interior design plan is very close to the Golf, which should significantly raise the status of the sedan, as the previous interior was really boring and frankly cheap.

The other three petrol units dispensed changes.
Aspirated 4-cylinder 16-valve 1.6-liter engine with the function of distributed fuel injection develops about 105-year-horsepower at 5250 rpm and about 153 Newton meters of maximum torque.
In a pair of the unit receives a mechanical 5-band transmission or an automatic 6-speed transmission.

This engine is equipped with an automatic 6-band transmission or seven-step “robot» DSG features a manual shift and double clutch.
Here, with any transmission to accelerate from zero to the first “hundred” takes about 9.8 seconds, but in comparison with the “automatic” 7-speed DSG is more economical – in mixed mode fuel consumption is 6.0 liters vs. 6.2 in favor of the “robot.”
And the role of “leader” in the 2018-2019 Volkswagen Jetta sedan motor range model year went to the same turbocharged 1.4-liter unit, but with increased power.

All wheels are equipped with the German news disc brakes, where the diameter of the front discs (with ventilation function) is 28.8 cm, and rear (no ventilation) – 27.2 centimeters.
Rack and pinion steering system model obtained in the electromechanical power assistance with a variable force.
Assembling the Russian version of 2018-2019 Volkswagen Jetta model year will begin next winter and in February, the novelty should appear on sale.
