The 2008 Volkswagen Jetta bridges the size gap among compact sedans.
It does offer a coupe body style, a hybrid version, and a natural-gas drivetrain, as well as a better reputation for reliability.
The Ford Fusion has a nicely creased style, available all-wheel drive, and a big V-6 engine.
It shares some running gear with the Mazda6, which gets a rounded new style for 2009, as well as a more refined interior.
