The Jetta's option and feature lineup has been pared down in recent years (automatic climate control and leather seats are no longer offered), but it's still a very well-equipped model. A new touch-screen radio replaces the old unit in 2010 VW Jetta SE and SEL models. A sunroof is optional, Bluetooth connectivity is now available on all 2010 Jetta models, and the price of the navigation-system option (which includes a 30-gigabyte hard drive, SD memory slot, and iPod connectivity) has been reduced.
Standard equipment even on base S models includes cruise control, air conditioning, split folding rear seats, and heated front seats, along with an eight-speaker sound system. Automobile Magazine says that “if you're prepared to check all the options boxes, a Jetta can be made very luxurious.” But Inside Line emphasizes that the Volkswagen Jetta TDI "is no bare-bones, high-mpg econobox aimed at those of the hypermiler persuasion."
Autoblog appreciates how the Jetta comes with a real iPod dock—“not a simple auxiliary jack, but an honest-to-goodness dock for your Apple-made mp3 player.”
