Volkswagen Jetta Saloon (2014 - )

The Jetta’s problem is not that it’s a bad car, but rather that other (much better) cars from within the VW range really show it up in every single area. Next to them, it feels dated and more than a little rough around the edges when it comes to refinement, ride, and build quality. Yes, the Passat is a little dearer, but it’s also worth every penny.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The trouble with the Jetta’s cabin is that, while it’s pure Volkswagen, it’s previous-generation Volkswagen. The Golf and Passat, in particular, show just how far the company can go; and, while it’s not that the Jetta is a disaster – indeed, the soft-touch materials across the top of the dash are very classy – it’s just that you don’t have to look too far to find little details that disappoint. For example, the plastic around the centre console and on the door panels is hard and scratchy, while the ill-fitting lining in the lidded cubby behind the handbrake is something you don’t expect. Likewise, the more modern switches and infotainment systems in other VWs show up the Jetta’s. On the other hand, the Jetta feels robust, and the driving position is excellent, with the wide range of adjustment on the seat and steering wheel allowing almost anyone to get comfortable.
