The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
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 Mazda6 could easily steal sales from the traditional class leaders if non-gearheads discover it.
