04. 2012 Volkswagen Jetta
The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta is a sedan that might look a significantly bigger than the VW Golf, but strip away the cosmetics and you'll find that both of these vehicles have a whole lot in common. Not only do the Golf and the Volkswagen Jetta share all of the same engine options, but they also offer very similar fuel economy and sit on a shared platform. Key differences include interior room (with the Jetta providing extra space for backseat riders), and unique suspension and braking setups that see the Jetta provide a more comfortable but not necessarily as-fun-to-drive experience when compared to the hatchback.
