Improvement to its aerodynamics has given the new Jetta an improved top speed even without any changes to its drivetrain. It now tops out at 202kmh instead of 199kmh previously. The sprint to 100kmh remains a leisurely 9.8 seconds but the 7-speed DSG achieves it in the smoothest way possible.

Despite the modest 122bhp under the hood, the car doesn’t feel out of breath at highway speeds and keeps up with traffic reasonably well. Power delivery from its 1.4-litre turbocharged four cylinder is smooth and seamless.

With the suspension tuned for comfort, the car feels pliant when cruising from point to point. Around the bends, the car rewards with stability and relates with a moderately communicative steering feel. The steering weight feels better suited for tackling three point turns in carparks than taking corners and is lightly weighted for that purpose.

Our test car came equipped with the Jetta Highline trim which features the Corn Silk Beige interior. A classier looking colour compared to the usual dull grey interior of most Volkswagens. Like before, the interior feels spacious and ergonomic. Both front seats are comfortable and supportive and appear a tad more luxurious in the rich creamy beige colour.
