Volkswagen of America, Inc., has announced that the 2019 Jetta has been named a finalist for the 2019 Green Car of the Year® award by Green Car Journal. This prestigious award honors the vehicle that Green Car Journal deems to “raise the bar in environmental performance while remaining within reach of most consumers.” The Jetta was praised for improved design, interior space, technology, and new 1.4-liter engine.
“Finalists for the 2019 Green Car of the Year® illustrate that ‘green’ comes in many forms,” said Ron Cogan, Editor and Publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. “Built on VW’s MQB platform, the seventh-generation Jetta offers a bolder design, greater interior space, lots of tech, and an EPA-estimated 40 highway mpg fuel efficiency rating, a milestone often achieved by hybrid powertrains, but in this case delivered by the Jetta’s 1.4-liter TSI® gasoline engine.” While the 2019 Jetta is more technologically advanced than ever, retaining its fun-to-drive character and of course, fuel economy was of critical importance.
“We’re so pleased to be selected as a finalist for the Green Car of the Year award,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and After Sales for Volkswagen of America, Inc. “This further validates the Jetta as an exceptionally competitive offering in the compact sedan segment, where efficiency is top of mind.”

We had the pleasure of hosting the North County VW Air Cooled Group Meeting at Herman Cook!
Over 30 classic Volkswagens were at the event for the public to view.
There were 4 rare Type 34 Karmann Ghias parked out front to showcase the event, owned by various members of the group.
Westfalia camper vans gave a glimpse of what life was like back in the 1960’s.
A glimpse filled with nostalgia, indeed.
Refreshments and pizza were had by all of the participants and it was free for the public to attend.
To share the company of other classic Volkswagen enthusiasts was a delight. We cannot get enough of these classic beauties!
Closing the gap between current VW models and the relics of the past was a truly special sight to behold. Tying in the old spirit of vintage Volkswagen to the current day ones in the same lot at the dealership resulted in a truly a special connection!
