The Volkswagen Jetta sedan is perfect for car for families with parents and two or three kids. It’s a compact car, so it’s not too big, but the Jetta is larger than other compact sedans (Corolla, Civic, Sentra, etc.). Your family will be comfortable inside it, but it won’t take up a lot of room either.
Priced at less than 11K, the Jetta is also ideal for a single person looking for an affordable car.
The Jetta is the 2nd smallest Volkswagen brand sold in the United States (behind the Rabbit). Like most compact sedans, the Jetta has an excellent reputation. The 2006 Jetta is the first 5th generation Jetta Jetta model.

“A 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine powers the standard models and it's pleasantly robust, with a broad power curve and a raspy sound. The 2.5-liter engine gets an EPA-rated 22 miles per gallon City, 30 mpg Highway, whether equipped with the five-speed manual gearbox or the new six-speed Tiptronic automatic…Regardless of engine, we found the new Jetta responsive around town and comfortable on long trips. Volkswagens are known for handling, and the new Jetta carves through corners with precision…USER REVIEWS:
The new Jetta is larger than previous models, and it features a more spacious interior stuffed with convenience and lavished with Volkswagen's legendary attention to detail. Even the least-expensive model offers an elegant, high-quality cabin. Its driver enjoys excellent visibility and ease of use with logical controls and instruments. Build quality is superb inside and out. All in all, the new Jetta is a solid car.”
“The all-new Volkswagen Jetta is a delectable dish of European-bred automotive technology, superior materials and tangibly good build quality. This new Jetta is both a comfortable long-range cruiser and a snappy runabout. Choosing to address the American driver's thirst for torque was one of the more pleasing ways that Volkswagen fashioned the standard 2.5-liter models for the stop-and-go derby of urban driving, but it's still how well the Jetta conquers the open road that makes the Volkswagen driving experience distinctive and enjoyable.”
