Almost as old as the Golf line from which it originally spawned as an offshoot, the Jetta is a compact saloon car.
Over the 7 generations since its introduction in 1979 the car has remained the same rough shape with modernization changes to keep it appealing to today's tastes.
Although the shape hasn't changed the company has offered it as a station wagon at certain points in its lifetime such as in the 1990s when they were popular.
It has gone by many names in different regions around the world such as the Atlantic, the Vento, the Bora and the Sagitar.
Total sales for the Jetta line have surpassed 14 million making it the second best-selling model after the Golf.
A hybrid option was included with the sixth generation in 2012 that captures lost energy during braking and recycles it during acceleration.
Inside it boasts a touch-screen infotainment center with mobile device connectivity for Android and Apple devices.
Alongside those modern comfort features are some impressive safety technology such as automatic crash response aids and tire pressure monitoring.
