Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Other than the shuffling of some minor trim items, the 2018 Volvo S60 carries over unchanged.

PROS
Good balance between a comfortable ride quality and sporty handling
Excellent safety scores and available advanced safety features
Available extended-wheelbase model offers extra legroom

CONS
Fuel economy for high-performance engine might not live up to expectations
Standard-wheelbase sedan has less rear legroom than competitors

The 2018 Volvo S60 is a pleasant car, but rivals and even the rest of Volvo’s lineup have left it in the dust.

Pros
Great safety scores
Broad lineup
Strong acceleration
Exceptionally comfortable seats
High-buck feel inside

Cons
Bland, dated styling
Old-school infotainment
Even at its best, not all that fun
Light on personality versus Volvo’s latest

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: 
caranddriver.com
