My wife and I currently own two Jettas (2009 SE and 2010 TDI Sportwagen) and had a 2011 Jetta SE as a loner.
While the handling of the new Jetta was superior to the previous sedan, the interior quality was a huge step back from the older models.
Everything inside is hard to the touch and very cheap feeling.
I really like the exterior styling (wife does not), but the interior is a disappointment compared to VW's of the past.
Even my father-in-laws 2004 Golf has a nicer interior feel...strange.
Exterior styling, driving dynamics
Interior should be brought up on par with the current Sportwagen or at least the previous version of the Jetta.
