Though the starting MSRP of a vehicle is easy to find, it’s not often an accurate representation of how much you’ll end up paying. Buyers seldom opt for the bare-bones starting incarnation of a machine (not that there’s anything wrong with doing so!)
To help you get a better idea of how much your dream 2019 VW Jetta will run you, we’ve broken down the prices and key features of each trim of the sedan. Though prices can still waver up and down from what you see here, our data should at least give you a better idea of how much you can expect to approximately spend.
Note: Every trim of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta comes with the same 147-horsepower-producing 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. This powerplant gets 30 miles-per-gallon in the city and 40 on the highway. Those looking for more strength should turn to the performance-oriented 2019 VW Jetta GLI, which is not covered in this post.
