2011 Volkswagen Jetta Long-Term Road Test

2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: My Knees Were Pleased

June 01, 2011


Yes, those are my knees. Note their distance from the front seat back. Not bad for a car of this size. I'll point out that the front seat was adjusted to my liking which is abnormally close for a person of my height (6'2").

This Jetta is often knocked for getting too big and going too mainstream. The bland styling doesn't help either. But can you blame Volkswagen for making it more comfortable for average sized people. Makes sense, no?

The seats themselves are about average as far as shape and comfort. Nothing terrible about the rear bench, nothing great about it either. Overall, it's about the kind of rear seat you would expect in a car like the Jetta.
