Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi S3 carries over into 2019 without significant changes.

PROS
Powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine
Upscale interior that looks and feels expensive
Precise handling that makes it a joy to drive on twisty roads
Standard all-wheel drive for enhanced traction

CONS
Small trunk won't fit much more than a couple of small suitcases
Adults will feel cramped in the back seat
No manual transmission option

The 2018 Audi S3 is a blast to drive, but it suffers from a tiny rear seat and the Volkswagen Golf R offers the same performance with more room for less.

Pros
Tremendous performance bang for buck
Great powertrain
High-end LTE connectivity
Svelte shape

Cons
Tiny rear seat
No manual transmission
Gets pricey with options

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a mild-mannered, well-equipped compact sedan.

Pros
Docile personality
High-tech options
Good safety gear
Styling will age well

Cons
Docile personality
Breaks little new ground
Conservative, almost to a fault
Unsupportive front seats

By:

The 2019 Jetta is marginally bigger than the old car, continuing a trend that has seen the Jetta grow to roughly the size of the fondly remembered B5-generation 1997–2005 Passat. The Jetta’s wheelbase has been stretched 1.3 inches to 105.7 inches, which helps the car maintain its proportions even with an overall length that has grown to 185.1 inches.

Pros
Classy interior,
responsive 1.4-liter turbo,
slick manual available.

Cons
Mute steering,
smaller trunk,
no GLI at launch.

By:
