For 2018, Chrysler has shuffled the 300's features and trim level names, but otherwise the car remains mechanically the same. The V8 engine was previously available across the board, but it is now offered on just two trim levels.

PROS
Cabin is quiet, with an upscale look and feel
Available V8 engine suits the car's personality well
Touchscreen technology interface is easy to use

CONS
V8 engine now limited to just two trim levels
Hard to see out the back because of small rear window and thick roof pillars

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.
