The Jetta has always been something of an anomaly of the Volkswagen range. Sitting somewhere between the Golf and Passat, the compact saloon is often overlooked as buyers opt for the more fashionable Golf or bigger Passat. However, the sixth-generation Jetta is no longer just a Golf with a boot. That boot might have shrunk a little – it still has more than 500 litres of space, but rear passengers get an extra bit of leg space to compensate for the minor loss of luggage space. It is now an all-new model and a good car in its own right worth serious consideration. That doesn’t mean it’s without flaws. While the handling is far from lifeless it does little to excite either. As you’d expect from the German brand a polished finish takes precedent over a passionate and engaging driving experience, but the selection of engines are good, while the huge boot space and extended rear passenger space means it is ideal as a cheaper alternative to the Passat.
