The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
Although the Jetta’s doesn't offer the farfegnugen it once did, the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta provides spacious interior room and efficient clean-diesel technology. The 2009 Ford Fusion is a great choice for those who place their priorities on style and handling, but if interior space matters to you, look elsewhere.
