Interesting to read Automobile Magazine’s 2006 Jetta review. They seem a little lukewarm toward the new Jetta.
Their summary talks about “superb interior quality”, “numerous safety features” and “lots of standard features”. They complain about “dull styling” (really?), that the car is “pricey with options” and that the performance is hampered by weight.
“Pricey with options”? Didn’t they just say that there were lots of standard features and safety equipment?
They then go on to say that other cars in the category are:
- Honda Civic
- Mazda 3
- Toyota Corolla
Sorry guys, but a Civic hasn’t been in the same class as a Jetta for about a dozen years now. As for the Mazda 3, the size of the car alone should disqualify it from being mentioned in the same breath as a Jetta (or a new Golf). Hell, the Mazda 3 barely compares with the old Jetta.
Don’t get me started on the Toyota Corolla.
