Why the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta?

Fuel economy

Stellar vehicle all around. Fuel economy is amazing, have gotten as low as 4.9L/100km with 110 km/hr highway driving and one driver and one passenger. Loaded, it still comes under 5.5. (I am not a heavy footed driver but do cruise at posted highway speeds plus a bit. Comfortable all around. Three months and 12,000km into ownership and I like it more and more. I checked out a whole bunch of cars and wanted fuel economy so had looked at the hybrids then thought that this is a proven technology, drove one and was sold on it. The hybrids that I drove were more expensive and all had a quirk or two when driving (including the Jetta hybrid)

Interior styling

Great back seat leg room and comforable for adults in the back.

Controls and instruments

The bluetooth gear all works flawlessly (phone and stereo) which is a first in my experience. I have owned some US brands that have all that stuff and was always disappointed with these systems

Controls and instruments

The only bugs; mine (even though I have the highline trim) does not have auto headlights, the door remote is not very powerful - you pretty well have to be on top of the car and, the touch sensing lock and unlock works pretty good but by times, it requires multiple touches.

Conclusion

Cannot go wrong with this car. Fuel economy is A1, handling is fine, fit and finish are great, solid feeling and a proven technology that I hope will result in me owning and driving this car for at least another 10 years.
