Latest Jetta is a marked improvement, but still dull as ever

Good stuff

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

Bad stuff

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


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.

What's the verdict?
