The Volkswagen Jetta has been in production since 1979 – and the sixth generation of this popular family was manufactured between 2011 and 2017. Spacious, comfortable, economical and safe, this compact saloon car represents a terrific pre-owned purchase.
Even entry-level variants of the Jetta come well-equipped with, for instance, 16-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable and heated side-view mirrors and daytime running lights. Inside, the car includes electric front and rear windows, air-conditioning and a refrigerated glovebox among its range of standard features.
The driver is presented with six-way-adjustable seating and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, making it easy to establish a comfortable position. All-around legroom is generous, even for rear-row passengers – something that was noticeably improved with the sixth-generation model. The Jetta easily accommodates two full-sized adults at the back – or three younger travellers in its rear compartment. The car possesses a minimum-capacity 510-litre boot space too, which can be further increased thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats.
Base-level Jetta iterations are typically powered by a 1.4-litre petrol engine, which manages up to 45.6mpg, produces a 144g/km CO2 emission figure and delivers 0-60mph in approximately 9.6 seconds. For the most fuel-efficient option, choose a model that is installed with a 2.0-litre 110bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 68.9mpg and emissions as low as 105g/km.
Tested by Euro NCAP in 2011, the Tiguan was awarded a five-star crash-test rating and comes with plenty of protective equipment. Included are driver aids such as Electronic Stability Programme and Anti-lock Braking System, and passive safety features such as ISOFIX child-seat mounts and a six-airbag system.
