Design And Comfort
With a nice sleek body that Jetta looks like a sportier version of the Passat. The front face styling is reminiscent of other VW models such as the Golf and Passat owing to the chrome framed radiator grille with the large VW logo sitting squat in the middle and twin-eyed head lamps. The Jetta also sports LED tail lamps at the rear which adds to its appeal. The multi-spoke 16 inch alloy wheels and dual-tip chrome enhances the car further complimenting the car with a sporty look.
The lush interior features a well planned centre console with user-friendly buttons and switches, a typical three spoke steering wheel and large comfortable seats with adequate under thigh support. There is a difference of how the petrol and diesel cars are presented from the interiors, while the interior of the petrol Jetta is a basic two-tone black and grey, the diesel has been blessed with an elegant black and beige combination giving it a richer look. Five adults can enjoy a comfortable travel with ample legroom, knee room and headroom with a lot of neat storage spaces available.
Ride And Handling
The Jetta promises a ride with maximum comfort and minimum bumps. The suspension systems work efficiently to ensure that small bumps never prove too much a nuisance.
