2014 Volkswagen Jetta Reviews
A whole section of the public is not just content vanishing into the backdrop in life, but really seeks means of camouflaging themselves through their day-to-day drive at the same time. The Jetta is the automobile in their opinion.
VW's best selling car, the Jetta comes in 14 fashions, including multiple variations of the GLI, S, SEL, SE, TDI and Base. I drove an SE with Sunroof and Connectivity bundles. This engine teams -steering system. Select tailored levels get VW's Auto-Internet system, and upper trim levels reap the benefits of a fresh backup camera in 2013. Compare the Jetta of this year.
If the Jetta is not quite the perfect fit for you, you might also need to study the Honda Civic or -- if you desire somewhat more pizazz in the fashion of your auto -- the Hyundai Elantra. Check them out.
Outside & Styling
As soon as I arrived to decide my 11-year old daughter up from school, brown said, "I love how cool the sparkly colour of the car is!"
And the remark from my husband was, "This is the auto my cpa would purchase. It is the auto my accountant would need me to purchase. Enough said."
This can be somewhat less than the Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra, which get an EPA-estimated 33 and 32 mpg united, respectively.
It was difficult to hasten with no turbo kick throwing my head back, while the could undoubtedly be called enjoyment. Cornering and braking felt safe and confident.
My accountant was hit by how much the cottage was infiltrated by wind sound during highway commutes. The Jetta SE would undoubtedly benefit from some added sound damping.
In the 2014 SE, an occasionally perplexing combination of modern conveniences baffled me riding with price-saving shortcuts. My test car had keyless access and Bluetooth sound with push button beginning within the Connectivity Bundle, yet I had to manually use the headlights. Heated front seats were additionally a part of the automobile, however the driver's seat was adjustable back and forward, though -adjustable recline. As we say in our family, "Not weird, only different." OK, perhaps it is strange.
Up front, the cupholders are not really practical. It appears they were examined by Volkswagen with just a metal or ceramic travel cup; the cupholders' prongs hold paper coffee cups manner too closely, making it impossible to get out your java. Perhaps this is the manner of inducing dogs to forgo paper coffee cups more environmentally friendly of VW?
Another irritation for me during my daily drives was that way an excessive amount of air was blown by the lowest setting on heat and air conditioning system. I needed to handle my in-auto Beyonce hair fan by repositioning and closing several of the air ports.
In the rear, the children relaxed with the remarkable 38.1 inches of backseat legroom.
Another lock/unlock button on the center console's rear was quite helpful for my family, also, letting my children that are older to readily unlock the automobile to scale out in the carpool lane.
Dogs valued the straightforward layout of the center control panel, with clear, exact, rational arrangement and dials.
The Bluetooth phone system reconnects readily alone, and the first pairing was nearly perplexing in its simplicity. Dogs kept waiting for the auto to give me a matching code, fussing with it before I recognized my telephone had already matched on its own without the input over and over again.
Freight & Storage
It fit in the Jetta simply great, with room to spare.
A 60/40- freight space raises drastically and adds to the hauling flexibility of the automobile.
The Jetta has additionally been crash- . One is regular on higher trim levels, although my test vehicle had not been equipped with a backup camera.
All Jettas contain the Intelligent Crash Answer System of VW. This system will unlock all the doors, turn the hazard lights on and switch off the fuel pump in case of a crash. The Jetta doesn't uncomplicated -security systems like lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring or crash warning.
Seat belt buckles are on bases that are stable but are flush with the seat- pillow that is bottom. The Latch anchors are pretty shallowly found in between the seat bottom and seatback's stiff, imitation leather top layer.
See all the normal safety features.
Worth in Its Category
The Jetta is an established performer in a increasingly active pack of worth sedans, & most undoubtedly tops the list when it comes to interior spaciousness. But upscale comforts and price-saving features' mismatch might confuse consumers directing them toward more consistently good-equipped selections.
