2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
This truly is the next best or closest I can get to an A4 without feeling like I got the cheapest thing available. The value this car represents is incredible especially when looking at standard features. The ride is quite comparable to an Audi A4 although perhaps a bit softer.
The torque is amazing!! Don't let the horsepower numbers fool you. Drive it!
6 speed manual transmission on the 5 cylinder would be nice.
