A surprisingly well-rounded take on the new Jetta comes from Dan Lienert of all people. Lienert (besides offering a spiffy new mugshot) runs through the real world obstacles of the overhauled Jetta along with the very real sales numbers that place the Jetta as the most popular European nameplate sold in the U.S. But it's at the end of his recap where the most substance can be found. "The main question for the new Jetta is, will its changes be enough to make the model continue to matter to ordinary people—or is the new car for fans only?" That's the big question isn't it?
