Some are saying it’s too bland, compared to the cars being launched by other manufacturers, but, personally, I’m liking the new 2011 Volkswagen Jetta. I’m on the lookout for a daily commuter when I start work, and in the price range, VW’s have the most appealing interiors – simple elegance and well-constructed. The previous model’s (2010) exterior was too blobby for my tastes, so I was excited when Volkswagen showed off something a little more Audi-angular. The 3.5″ stretch to the length also helped out the proportions. Many cars are showing up with crazy creases and swoopy lights. They’re flashy, but will they keep well with time? I’m not so sure.
Shame the 2.0T or TDI won’t show up in the new Jetta until next year. Looks like I’ll have to make do with a 2.5L if I go this route.
