The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen Jetta

£19,295£25,225
4/10
Overall verdict
There’s nothing wrong with the Volkswagen Jetta, but why on earth would you get one when the Golf is so much more versatile?
 

For: 

Facelift brings big improvements; engines, looks & interior quality are all on the up

Against: 

It looks like a teenager who’s been told to wear a suit and tie for a juvenile court appearance. Saloon bodies don’t suit cars this size

Overview

What is it?

Latest Jetta has been updated again ready for 2015; it gets a new nose and new engines, but it’s still essentially the same car. You now can’t pick a duff engine and both ride and interior quality impress. But puh-lease, there has to be a more interesting choice… In fact, there are. Many of them.
