Roadfly tested the completely updated and redesigned 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SEL. Major competitors for this German sport sedan include the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and Mazda3. When reviewing a car like the VW Jetta one of the things we look for in the road test is how well the Jetta compares to others in its class. The relatively inexpensive compact car segment is crowded to say the least. Host Emme Hall found the trunk to be plenty spacious, lots of leg room for rear seated passengers and fun and confident driving characteristics. Safety equipment on the 2011 VW Jetta includes six standard airbags; ABS; stability control; and a new crash response system that unlocks the doors, shuts off the fuel pump, and turns on the hazard lights in the event of an impact.
