The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
"Farfegnugen" no longer applies to the entire 2010 Volkswagen Jetta line, but with an excellent interior and an available TDI engine, the Jetta sedan or SportWagen makes a lot of sense for budget-conscious or even eco-conscious families. If you seek proof that Detroit in general, and Ford in particular, can build a comfortable, high-quality, fine-driving, and hyper-efficient sedan that is more than competitive, look to the 2010 Ford Fusion.
