Feels like new-money-luxury.
I recently traded in my leased 2017 Jetta se for a 2019 Jetta se. While the 2019 version is a bit longer, a bit more cargo space, a much larger sunroof, a bigger and better-oriented touch screen, a more clear back-up camera, and a bit more fuel efficient, it is still extremely similar to the 2017 version. The biggest noticeable change is the transmission. The newer version is much smoother in its gear shifting, but it feels less sporty. I wonder if there is any difference in the suspension since the newer version is a bit longer. The 2017 version seemed sportier overall: more responsive acceleration, tight handling suspension, etc. The 2019 version has a more luxury feel to it. The software for the touch screen is a little cleaner and more user friendly, and it interacts better with a connected cell phone. Overall, I am very happy with my new Jetta.
