The all-new Volkswagen Jetta is a winner on all performance and design fronts. It's been restyled and wears its new 3 inches with elegance. The 5-cylinder 2.5-liter engine is proven and gets 28 mpg, using an optional versatile 6-speed automatic transmission with sport and manual modes. The interior is stylish, clean and comfortable with V-Tex leatherette standard on all but the base S model. The trunk is large and rear seat legroom first in the compact class. For $20,000 you get an excellent automobile.
