Volkswagen Jetta Overview
A little bigger than most compact sedans, the Jetta is a roomy, comfortable, and practical choice. The new 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder is smooth and flexible, and returns an excellent 30-mpg. But skip the anemic base 2.0-liter engine. The GLI gets a strong turbo 2.0-liter, a more sophisticated suspension, better brakes, and a richer-feeling interior. The diesel's 34-mpg overall is very good, but it's upstaged by the 37-mpg we got from the smooth Hybrid version. Its 1.4-liter turbo engine, electric motor, and seven-speed automated manual work seamlessly. Revisions to the steering and suspension have given the Jetta improved agility and a steady ride. Diesel versions are recommended, with average reliability; the 1.8T has well-below-average reliability.
