Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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.

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

The 2019 Dodge Charger isn't a sensible car for sensible drivers. Instead, it's for drivers who want a car that looks cool, makes cool noises, goes obscenely fast and comes in colors such as Go Mango, Plum Crazy, TorRed and White Knuckle. If you're looking for something state-of-the-art, fuel-efficient, refined and anonymously styled, the Charger is not your car.

Pros
Powerful V8 engines available, including the one for the 707-hp Hellcat
Trim levels and graphics packages allow for plenty of personalization
Infotainment is user-friendly and features a large touchscreen

Cons
Fit and finish not always on par with some competitors
Sloping roofline impedes visibility and rear-seat access
V8 engines can be thirsty when driven with enthusiasm

Aging gracefully, the 2019 Dodge Charger can be a V-6 family sedan or a genuine American muscle car.

Pros
A V-8 and rear-wheel drive are always fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Appealing looks
Infotainment remains as intuitive as any on the market

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
V-8 doesn't offer AWD
Old design getting older
