Volkswagen 2019 Jetta at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. While the new Jetta borrows some design cues from the , Volkswagen played it a bit too safe. The Jetta has never been a big stunner, but sporty models like the GLI have managed to keep it somewhat interesting. So far, VW has only confirmed a 1.4-liter turbocharged TSI engine with 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. We hope that Volkswagen builds a new GLI or perhaps something even greater in the near future.
