many congratulations deepak.

I went yesterday May 23 to test drive Jetta confortline 2.0 CRDI but someone else had rear ended the test car and thus we could not do so. The first impression of the interiors are spellbinding and I could not find any fault with the car.

We instead test drove Sonata Transform. The ride quality was excellent and the space is huge. We all were impressed with the comfort factor. Though the interiors were not as good as Jetta as well as the feature list was smaller.

We still think for Jetta and just waiting for the car to be available for test drive. If the rear seat drive comfort is good then it will be Jetta else Transform has pulled us in with its comfort and space.

The deciding factor is rear seat comfort and space. Which is where Sonata Transform and Jetta has to match the comfort as it cannot match the space.

Both the cars will cost 18.5 lack onroad Mumbai with no discounts.

As you just bought Jetta, I hope you can help us with your experience. If you are a rear seat driver then that would be great.

Many congratulations and happy motoring.

Thanks jawanak. My review is here. I am not a rear seat driver. But comfort wise I felt the Transform is better. Space and comfort go hand in hand. When there is lesser space it has to dent on comfort too. My only criteria was can three people can sit at the back without complaining and I can sit behind myself (that is the front seat at the position that I sit, I can go back and sit comfortably). Both these criteria were met with the Jetta.

thanks a ton for the feedback.

I also felt so. With my driving position people at the back were not uncomfortable et all, just that Transform has more space and that puts a bigger smile on the rear seated people.

will read through your review before I ask anything further.

Cheers!

Is there no Automatic gear option in the new Jetta?

No. At present, Jetta comes with only manual transmission.

Sonata is one size bigger than Laura and Jetta and Cruze and still it is being comapred here - why the heck doesn't Hyundai work on their brands?!

Alpha1 - Hyundai needs to work more on the product rather than the Brand. The Sonata displays the korean light metal quality rather than European build that other cars in the segment and price point reek off.
