The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 VW Jetta stands out in TDI and GLI trim, and its new four-cylinder erases our bad memories of the old five-cylinder. Remember the Neon? The 2014 Dodge Dart brings back some of its personality, but in a decidedly better package.
