Not bad, but far from good


1. The 2011 Jetta at $15,995; which is $1,710 than the 2010 model.

2. The engine is an archaic 2.0L 4-cylinder that makes 115-hp and gets 24/34-mpg

3. The SE trim starts at $18,195 and with a 170-hp 2.5L

4. Significantly larger than the old the 2011 model gains of rear seat legroom.

plan is to have North products that are better on our wants and needs, which is led the company to build a new manufacturing in the United States. The plant in will eventually crank out a new model, designed specifically for our with a larger overall and a lower base price.


But another offering in that is at your local dealer now: the larger, roomier, and 2011 Jetta. Those are not words that find in the same sentence when with a new vehicle, but the company’s was to get back to its People’s Car history.

are the basics. The new Jetta is three longer than before, also stretches the wheelbase for a cabin. That makes it one of the vehicles in its class, and helps to a 2.7-inch increase for rear-passenger something that was already The big tail hides the class-leading cu-ft trunk, which significantly larger when the rear seat is folded

Standard equipment is halfway too, with air conditioning, one-touch windows, keyless a touch-screen audio system, a and telescoping steering wheel, six ABS, traction- and stability Throw in a base price a fiver under $16K – Volkswagen’s least-expensive vehicle and less than the cheapest hatch – and this starts to like a real bargain.

Finally the source of ire will be the not-really-new new engine. While the old Jetta’s 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine is available, it’s in the $18,195 SE level, a significant price over the headline-gaining $16K sticker. The torquey ‘five’ has supplemented with the Reagan era eight-valve four-cylinder. Not seen for years – other than in exclusive City Golf and Jetta range – it’s an reminder of how far Volkswagen has come in three decades. It produces a 115 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque, and is to either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic.

And the looks? Split decision. some angles, and in certain the Jetta is quite attractive. even. In others? Hard-pressed to out in a parking lot. A few neat include the squared-off front which you won’t notice you’re looking down on the from above, and the wide grille and headlights. Head-on, it the changes made to the Golf, Eos and Touareg SUV. From the Unremarkable. Could be anything.


The Jetta isn’t a bad car, just a disappointing one. If the kind of customer who buys by the you’d be hard pressed to a better bargain. But if you’re for driver satisfaction and a little de vivre . shop elsewhere.
