Volkswagen completely changed the Jetta in 2019, so the 2020 Jetta will have minor updates. Most of these updates are driver convenience focused, wider grille, headlights, and tail lights. The 2020 will also provide plenty of passenger space, cargo space, and the infotainment system will be user-friendly.
Although few visual and technological changes are expected, the 2020 Jetta will still offer safety and technology upgrades from the 2019 version. This bodes well for Seattle drivers in rainy, congested conditions.
