Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Jetta saloon?

The Skoda Octavia is one of our favourite cars. It’s a hatchback, unlike the Jetta, and it comes with a spacious and classy interior. Its engines are all punchy, it’s good to drive in all versions and it’s a great buy used too.

The Ford Focus is another hatchback with a spacious interior, if not as large and commodious as the Octavia. However, its driving position is first class, its ride and handling impressive and its practicality somewhere above that of the booted Jetta.  

Overview

The VW Jetta is a spacious and competent four-door saloon. It’s just a pity it’s a bit dull

  • Good fuel economy
  • Spacious interior
  • Well equipped
  • Uninteresting to drive
  • Not great to look at
  • Quite pricey, even used
