We’d like to introduce to you the All-New 2019 Volkswagen Jetta! Fun to be in, Smart to own, and Designed to move forward.
Based off the award-winning MQB platform, the 2019 Jetta has been redesigned for a tasteful, more premium look and feel. Set for a Summer 2018 release date, it’s sportier and sleeker with dynamic lines and taut surfaces combined to form an elegant, yet athletic silhouette.
The entire interior has been rethought and refreshed with more interior space. High quality soft-touch materials throughout and new trapezoidal design elements give the vehicle an upscale, yet modern feel. It even has an available BeatsAudio® 400-watt premium sound system!
A driver-oriented Volkswagen Digital Cockpit with the infotainment screen located high on the dashboard gives the interior of the all-new Jetta a modern look and makes vehicle information easily accessible to the driver. The Jetta’s technology upgrades extend beyond the cabin to include a comprehensive suite of available top-notch driver assistance technology.
A larger infotainment screen features an updated design and upscale amenities. It combines high-tech features with everyday usability and refined fit and finish.
The 2019 Jetta will be powered by Volkswagen’s 1.4-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI® engine, making 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, the highest in the compact sedan class.
The body has been reshaped, creating a longer wheelbase, wider track, and bigger wheels. New low rolling-resistance tires that, while slightly larger than the tires on the previous model year Jetta, reduce resistance by up to 25 percent with superb handling.
Expressive LED headlights come standard on the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta.
Kasi couldn’t believe how spacious the trunk is!
The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will be available in S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels. An R-Line trim will join the launch lineup and features sportier styling, exclusive interior and exterior design elements, R-Line badging, and the XDS® electronic differential.
The all-new 2019 Jetta raises the bar in the compact sedan class, with bold design, innovative technology features, and a transferable, 6-year/72,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The warranty provides coverage for six-years or 72,000-miles (whichever occurs first), and the warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout the remainder of its duration.
The sneak peak of the highly-anticipated All-New 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will have us reaching for the sky when it is released this summer!

Herman Cook Volkswagen sponsored the second annual Encinitas Half Marathon last weekend, which kicked off at the infamous Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.
One of California’s most scenic Half Marathons, the Encinitas Half Marathon featured 7.5 miles of scenic course through 4 iconic surf towns.
We started off the race in a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas pacer car, which was a crowd stunner!

The Encinitas Half Marathon is 13.1 miles long, and runners are expected to maintain a 14.53 minute mile in order to stay within the 3 hour, 15 minute timeline.
The stunning course took participants through beautiful Leucadia, downtown Encinitas, and into Solana Beach. They enjoyed amazing ocean views as they cruised down the 101. There were over 7 miles of coastline passing Encinitas landmarks such as Swami’s Temple, Encinitas Boat Houses, Surfing Madonna Mosaic, and the Cardiff Kook Statue.
Robert Nichols, Race Director of the Encinitas Half Marathon put his heart and soul into organizing the event. 100% of the net proceeds benefited the ocean conservancy work of the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project, ocean education public art, disabled veterans, and children with special needs.
Runners traveled from 28 states to Encinitas to participate in the Half Marathon. There were 450 dedicated volunteers on race day!
16 runners flew here from other countries to participate including Ireland, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Japan, England, Australia, and New Zealand.
The winner was Teklu Deneke from Flagstaff, AZ, who completed the race in 1 hour, 7 minutes and 38 seconds. That’s just about a 5 minute mile. Way to go Teklu! Click here to see the race results.

This weekend, Herman Cook Volkswagen was proud to be a sponsor of the 2018 Cardiff Kook Run 5k, 10K on Sunday, February 4th. Celebrating its 6th year, the Cardiff Kook Run‘s mission is to enhance healthy lifestyles and promote the community simultaneously.
Herman Cook VW kicked off the race in a 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Coast pacer car with over 2,200 participants.
The course began under the world famous “Encinitas” sign on historic Coast Highway 101 in beautiful Encinitas, California. This scenic loop passed by the famous “Cardiff Kook” statue (The Magic Carpet Ride), rose above some of the most popular surf breaks in the world and headed down to Cardiff State Beach.
Runners were encouraged to burn off calories for one of the biggest days in American Sports – the Super Bowl. What better way to get ready than with a family morning run to prep for Sunday’s big game! Locals, kids, adults, serious runners and kooks alike participated – for life, for community, for a really fun time.
The course was also completed as fast as ever before! Records were broken for the top 3 racers for both men and women who participated in the event. Click here to see the race results.
The Cardiff Kook Run, which began in 2011, would not have been possible without the enthusiastic community participants that support the event. We are proud to have been a part of it!
