Seats are and well shaped and comfortable for about 15 minutes, then you realize they are too hard and fatigue and soreness begins to set in.
Road noise is prominent so between the noise and hard seats, the car is not one you look forward to driving long distances.
The 2013 Corolla is considerably better for longer trips.
I have not driven the resigned 2014 Corolla to see if it is still comfortable on long trips.
Another undesirable feature of the Jetta is that the effort required to activate the power windows is very high.
I've never experienced that in an American or Asian car.
