2011 Volkswagen Jetta Long-Term Road Test

2011 VW Jetta TDI: Nice, Big Footrest

April 29, 2011

Many new vehicles including several of our long-term test cars have itty-bitty footrests. On long trips, especially, this can lead to discomfort and foot squirming for me (size 9.5 chukka shown).

However, this is not the case with our long-term 2011 VW Jetta TDI. It's got a nice, big (but not juicy) footrest that's easy to find.

A decent-sized footrest is particularly difficult to package in manual transmission-equipped cars (although our Jetta is 6-speed DSG-equipped -- no clutch pedal).

Does this matter to you?
