Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend.

Pros
Sharp handling
Thrilling Fiesta ST
Good optional infotainment
Decent fuel economy

Cons
Balky automatic transmission
Cramped back seat
Poor crash-test scores
Light on safety tech
To be discontinued

Ford has said it will stop producing sedans and most of its hatchbacks over the next few years, given the buying public's proclivity for crossovers. That's unfortunate because the 2019 Ford Fiesta is one of the best subcompact cars on the market.

Pros
Sporty handling in turns
Well-appointed interior with advanced technology options
ST model's zesty performance

Cons
Some rivals offer better ride quality and seat comfort
Limited cargo and rear-seat space

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:

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta ranked #18 in Compact Cars. Currently the Volkswagen Jetta has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 12 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Good gas mileage
Smooth ride
All-day supportive seats
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Competitors are more upscale
Less fun-to-drive than rivals
