2007 Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen's best-selling car is basically a 4-dr sedan version of its Rabbit hatchback. Base and 2.5 Jettas have a 150-hp 5-cyl engine. The 2.0T and sporty GLI models have a 200-hp turbocharged 4-cyl. Jettas come with manual transmission: a 5-speed for base and 2.5 models, 6-speed for 2.0T and GLI. Base and 2.5 are available with a 6-speed automatic. The 2.0T and GLI offer a 6-speed sequential manual transmission (SMT). All Jettas have ABS, traction control, front side airbags and curtain side airbags. An antiskid system is optional for the base model, standard on others. Rear side airbags are optional on all. A newly available Wolfsburg Edition has the 5-cyl engine, heated front seats, and a sunroof. GLI has a firmer sport suspension lowered by 0.8-inch for '07. It also includes xenon headlights and specific styling touches. A navigation system and leather upholstery are available.

The four-door Jetta sedan is available in four models distinguished by engine size and standard features. The different models include: Base, 2.5, 2.0T, GLI. The base Jetta and Jetta 2.5 are powered by a 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine generating 150 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque, with a five-speed manual transmission. Both the Jetta and Jetta 2.5 are available with VW's six-speed automatic transmission, which includes a Tiptronic manual shift feature. The Jetta 2.0T and GLI are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a six-speed manual transmission. This high-tech engine produces 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. These models offer VW's Direct Shift Gearbox as an option. This six-speed works like a manual transmission with an automatic clutch pedal, and can be shifted manually or left in full automatic mode. For 2007, the Volkswagen Jetta receives a tire pressure monitoring system and the TDI turbodiesel is no longer offered.

The Jetta's interior is pleasant if you can get through the open door. Now I'll admit that as About Cars' token old guy I'm not as supple as I once was but I can still walk upright and at 6-feet should be able to slip inside a 4-door sedan with ease. Every attempt with the Jetta involved neck-twisting and the inevitable mussed hair (yes, I'm happy I still have hair). The rear seat was no better, suggesting that the car's tall stance has been sacrificed to style. Once in, however, I was enchanted by a handsome and typically German cockpit which immediately telegraphs a message: you're here to drive, buddy, so pay attention. All black and gray, the only visual relief is supplied by a band of lightly-patterned aluminum and a touch of chrome on the shift-surround. Primary instruments, speedo and tach, are clear but the engine temperature and fuel gauges are too small for a quick glance. The console has the same fault. Large and simple, it includes one set of switches that require a change of glasses if you're not wearing bifocals. Drinkers of morning revival juice will be pleased to note the two cupholders do not interfere with the handbrake and armrest. But be ready for a coffee-Tsunami if the sunroof's open.
