Carplay and voice control – lets you do so much just by talking to the car.

I love my car! It is very comfortable, mostly because it is very roomy on the inside. The dashboard is angled towards the driver, which I really like. It has a lot of great features including carplay so I can connect my phone to the car and have it read me my text messages or map things for me. I have only had it a few months, but haven't experienced any problems. I have only driven Volkswagens before, but my friends who have different cars always tell me how great it drives.

2019 is the best year yet for Volkswagen. Time for a test drive.

Car is a beautiful color. I drove it to myrtle beach and only had to fill it once. The blind side detection is awesome in traffic. You can hook your phone so you can enjoy your apps. It takes a while to get used to but the feature where the engine stops when you are at a traffic light or just stopped to save gas is really neat. Crash detection has saved me a few times. The only thing I do not like is when its very windy the door lights shake and is annoying.

Definitely worth the money

I recently got a VW Jetta SEL 2019 and i am loving the car. the features of the care are super cool, you can change the lighting inside the car, depending on your mood. The drive is great, car turn off when at a red light which saves gas. You can view your texts through the car screen which allows you to no longer use your phone. would recommend this car to anyone.
