The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen Jetta
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
Great seats, a supple ride and fine refinement mark out the Jetta as a car that cossets you like something from the next class up. It’s a good place to be.
Saying that, the Golf family, of which this is a member, isn’t the leader it once was in perceived quality, and there are some uninspiring slabs of hard plastic around the cabin. But the firm furniture and vault-like doors reassure you that it’s made of good stuff.
While the Jetta doesn’t have the versatility of a hatch, it does have a colossal boot. And the rear seat backs do flop forwards to extend the bay a bit.
