The Volkswagen Jetta is a solidly built, reliable and affordable-to-run executive car. This attractive and compact saloon also provides a safe, comfortable and refined ride and comes with a sizeable boot.
The Jetta’s four-door body style ensures that access for rear-row travellers is straightforward. The vehicle comes with a number of attractive body-coloured fixtures, such as electrically operated and heated wing mirrors, which also feature integrated indicators. Further illumination includes height-adjustable headlights that deliver high-beam intensity and automatically dim in response to oncoming vehicles.
The five-person Jetta is extremely spacious – and comfortably carries five full-size adults in each compartment. The car handles bumps in the road with ease; and over motorway stretches, the ride is very composed indeed. The driver benefits from adjustable seating and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel – and the controls are within easy reach and visibility is good too. A minimum capacity 510-litre boot should be more than enough to handle weekly shopping excursions or journeys to the airport laden with luggage.
Performance and Power
Entry-level S grades are fitted with a 1.4-litre 125bhp petrol engine, which delivers up to 53mpg and produces 122g/km of CO2 emissions. A 150bhp variant of the same engine is the most potent option, achieving 250Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 8 seconds, while still managing the aforementioned fuel-economy and CO2 figures. Peak efficiency is provided by models that are installed with a 2.0-litre diesel unit, which returns as much as 68mpg, while producing emissions as low as 107g/km.
Safe and Sound
To help keep you and your co-travellers entertained, an eight-speaker sound system is provided as standard. This comprises DAB digital radio, an AM/FM tuner and an MP3-compatible CD player. The Jetta comes with a maximum five-star crash-test rating – as awarded by Euro NCAP – and a range of driver aids and passive safety features. Included are Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Traction Control, both delivering enhanced stability, and Hill-hold Assist, which prevents uncontrolled rolling whenever the engine is started on a slope. The vehicle also features a six-airbag system and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points to help ensure that travellers big and small are kept safe and secure.
