I test drove the Wolfsburg Edition and the SE model at the dealership, and those two trims don't compare when it comes to driving excitement. The Wolfsburg just exudes power even with just a light touch of the gas pedal, while the SE just felt limp even when wound up. If you're looking for a practical car that can really pull when you want it to, consider WE Jetta.
State of the art 2.0T engine and DSG transmission. Firm, but not too firm, ride. Quality feel to the car.
I haven't had the car long enough to judge reliability myself, but turbo Jettas have very poor reliability verdicts from both Consumer Reports and JD Power. This is definitely something to think about. Rain- sensitive vipers and auto lights would be nice.
