What’s New with the 2019 VW Jetta?

Jetta 2019

Now in its seventh generation, the completely redesigned 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is ready to make waves when it hits dealerships this year. Contact Trend Motors Volkswagen in Rockaway, NJ to learn when you can test-drive the all-new Jetta.

More Standard Features

The 2019 Jetta offers even more standard bells and whistles than its former self. LED headlights, Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and taillights not only help other drivers see you better at night, but they also make you look cool while doing it. Jetta comes with an updated infotainment system, too, which lets you hook up your compatible Apple or Android device and control apps using the touch-screen display.

High-End Upgrades

Make Jetta your own with versatile options, from the available tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof to the luxurious two-tone V-Tex leatherette seats. You can even choose ventilated seating surfaces and heated front seats to help you stay comfortable, regardless of the weather outside. And with the optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, you’ll be able to see all your most important information front and center on a 10-inch HD screen.

What’s Under the Hood?

Pop the hood, and you’ll find a standard turbocharged engine perfect for both joyrides and daily commutes. With the six-speed manual transmission, Jetta gets an EPA-estimated 30 city and 40 highway mpg. And because Jetta’s automatic transmission has been given a boost from six to eight speeds, its fuel economy also gets kicked up a notch from the previous model year.

One Word: BeatsAudio

The first Volkswagen ever to offer BeatsAudio™, the 2019 Jetta turns your car into a sound studio. Listen to your favorite songs the way they were always intended to be heard as you cruise along. Plus, with App-Connect, you’ll even be able to stream music through your smartphone apps for a one-of-a-kind listening experience.

Stay up to date on all things Jetta by getting in touch with Trend Motors Volkswagen. Give us a call at 973-625-0100 to find out when you can expect to start seeing the 2019 Jetta at our dealership.

3 Benefits of Tiguan’s Longer Wheelbase

Tiguan 2018

Completely overhauled for 2018, the Volkswagen Tiguan features a longer wheelbase than its predecessors, giving you, your passengers and your cargo more room when traveling. At Trend Motors Volkswagen – located at 221 US-46 in Rockaway, NJ – we offer a large selection of new Tiguan models for sale. Visit us today, or give us a call at 973-625-0100 to learn more about the benefits of the new Tiguan wheelbase.

  1. Room for Everyone

A compact SUV that’s anything but small, the 2018 VW Tiguan offers available 3rd-row seating. That means, you can now seat up to seven passengers – two more than previous models – when you opt for the versatile 3rd row. Plus, when you’re not driving around your family or friends, the 3rd row folds flat for easy storage of cargo.

  1. More Cargo Space

Extended by over 10 inches, the Tiguan wheelbase also gives you more room to bring along all your gear, whether you’re on the way to your favorite camping spot or making a trip to the hardware store. If you need to maximize cargo room, simply pull the release lever in the trunk. In five-passenger models, you’ll have access to 73.5 cu. ft. of cargo volume with the 2nd row folded down. In seven-passenger models, you can utilize up to 65.7 cu. ft. with both the 2nd and 3rd rows folded.

  1. Comfortable Interior

With more space inside the cabin, Tiguan offers more luxurious amenities than ever before. For example, you can opt for the available Vienna leather seating surfaces for the 1st and 2nd rows for a well-appointed look and feel. An available leather-wrapped, multi-function heated steering wheel keeps your hands nice and cozy when the weather turns cold, while the optional dual-zone automatic climate control with 2nd-row air vent lets you and your passengers achieve the ideal level of comfort.

Enjoy Safe Off-Roading with the 2018 Tiguan

2018 VW TiguanOn the inside, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan boasts a spacious interior that can even be equipped with a third row for the first time ever. And while the redesign extends the wheelbase by 10.7 inches, adds a new powertrain and gives both the interior and exterior a major facelift, you might have forgotten that the Tiguan is still a capable off-road vehicle. Below, we break down some of the best off-roading features of the 2018 VW Tiguan.

Turbocharged Power

The turbocharged engine isn’t just fun; it provides the power you need to make every off-road trek a walk in the park. Updated for 2018, the Tiguan was the first VW to be equipped with the 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged engine with intercooler and direct fuel injection, which delivers 184 horsepower and 221 lb.-ft. of torque. This B-Cycle engine provides a longer combustion chamber and faster airflow, letting Tiguan use less fuel and generate more torque. It’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic mode, so you can shift as needed when navigating off-road terrain, like mud, sand, water and hills.

4MOTION All-Wheel Drive

When it comes to off-roading, nothing is more important than having four- or all-wheel drive. Available on all Tiguan trims, the 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system distributes power between the front and rear wheels to optimize traction and stability on various conditions. It’s coupled with a driving mode selector, allowing you to pick Off-Road or Off-Road Custom mode when you leave the asphalt.

Other Off-Road-Friendly Features 

All 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan models comes standard with Hill Hold Control and Hill Descent Control, which help keep you in control as you power up or down steep grades. Other features that come in handy when taking Tiguan off-roading include the four-wheel independent suspension, 1,500-lb. towing capacity and halogen reflector lens fog lights.

If you’re looking for a reliable and capable vehicle that performs just as well on dirt as it does on pavement, ask about the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan at Trend Motors Volkswagen. Stop by during business hours or contact us to learn more.

How the Atlas Stacks Up Against Its Rivals

Atlas 2018

New for the 2018 model year, the Volkswagen Atlas SUV has already made waves in the crossover segment thanks to its bold styling, roomy interior and standard technology features. Below, we’ll compare VW Atlas with its rivals, so you can learn just what sets this stylish ride apart from the competition.


In the crossover segment, most of the competition – like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander and Honda CR-V – have adopted narrow headlights and rounded edges in an effort to optimize aerodynamics. This has lead to reduced interior space and a bland exterior look. However, there’s one three-row crossover that’s not settling for anything less than bold, and that’s the 2018 VW Atlas.

The front end is squared off with sharp corners, standard LED headlights and a bold grille, giving Atlas a powerful and muscular appearance. Creased lines on the sides highlight the wheel arches, while the roof rails add a touch of athleticism. In the rear, Atlas is designed with a chrome strip above the trunk and a rectangular shape for a look that’s distinctly Volkswagen.

Interior Space

When designing a crossover, cutting corners is a big no-no, but as you already know, most CUVs are built with rounded-out edges. Thanks to the 2018 Atlas’s meaner, boxier design, it doesn’t skimp on interior space, giving you more room for passengers and cargo. In fact, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas took home MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Best Large Utility award. Its maximum cargo volume with both the second and third rows folded down is 96.8 cu. ft., making it one of the roomiest SUVs in the large crossover sphere.


These days, technology is what sells cars. Unfortunately for other SUVs in the crossover class, Volkswagen Atlas comes with a full range of tech-savvy features that are sure to impress. Standard on the 2018 VW Atlas, the Composition Color touchscreen sound system helps you stay connected on the go, while Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect lets you use select apps by linking a compatible smartphone with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or MirrorLink capabilities.
