1999 Jetta New Car Test Drive
Slide behind the steering wheel of the new Volkswagen Jetta and the German penchant for attention to detail is immediately evident. The 1999 Jetta is a perfect example of why this world-renowned reputation is well deserved and is sought after by potential buyers.
The simple act of closing the doors can become habit forming. The solid 'ca-chunk' of this activity brings a confidence one gets from knowing you made the right decision in buying this car. Volkswagen wanted to update the Jetta without losing the character of the car, and it appears as though this objective was accomplished. The new Jetta provides excellent accommodations for driver and passengers without becoming ostentatious. The Jetta can be equipped just the way you want with plenty of creature comfort features.
Out on the road, whether it is interstate travel or a sporty drive along a favorite country road, the Jetta will please. A new body structure is much stiffer and has made it possible for VW engineers to design a MacPherson strut/multi-link suspension that gives the Jetta a smooth ride while providing excellent handling ability. Slip the VR6 6-cylinder engine into the mix and you have yourself a quick and agile sports sedan.
