The Jetta joins the Volkswagen Passat and Beetle as 2014 Volkswagen models that have an overall five-star rating from the federal government.

The Jetta is on sale now.

The Jetta earned a four-star rating in the frontal crash test, a five-star rating in the side crash test and a four-star rating in the rollover crash test, according to Safercar.gov.

The Jetta earned a "good" rating in all crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but earned a "marginal" rating in the new small overlap front crash test.

That test is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object like a tree or utility pole.

Jetta competitors include the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Subaru Impreza.

Edmunds says: An important piece of safety information for consumers shopping in this crowded segment.
