Will it hit our shores soon?

The 7th-gen Volkswagen Jetta 2019 has recently been partially teased on the carmaker’s Canadian website under the form of a GIF image. As can be seen from the dark preview, the next-gen Jetta seems to be offered with a host of evolutionary redesign on the outside.

In particular, the Jetta 2019 appears to have a bolder look thanks to bigger headlights, redesigned grille, slimmer tail lights and especially a defined line running through the door handles. According to Mr. Hinrich Woebcken, CEO of Volkswagen North America, the all-new Jette is described to be “super modern” vehicle featuring an “emotional” design.

Although the current Jetta is still fine, its refinement and technology has been long fallen behind its brother Golf. This is why the German automaker has decided to update the new Jetta with its latest version of the excellent MQB platform. While it’s still unclear about the engine lineup details, latest car news suggests that the next-gen Jetta is very likely to be powered by the redesigned 2.0 TDI and the new 1.5 TSI engines.

In spite of the decrease in sales in the past few years, the Volkswagen Jetta has still topped the list of Volkswagen’s best-selling vehicles in the US market with a total of over 121,000 units sold in 2016.

The Volkswagen Jetta 2019 is set to be released at Detroit Auto Show in January 2018 and 12 months after that, the new Jetta GLI variant is also expected to be launched. While affirming the US would be the main market of the new Jetta, Mr. Hinrich Woebcken revealed that the car would also be exported to other countries. However, it has yet to be confirmed when the all-new Jette will make its way to Asian market.
