The new 2011 Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen's 2011 Jetta has just been unveiled and it's no surprise that the new model is bigger. Shockingly, it also manages to be more affordable with a starting price of about $16,000.

The interior of the Jetta hasn't changed as much as you'd expect, considering the major exterior overhaul. Of course, the larger dimensions yield more leg and headroom, but the overall aesthetic hasn't changed much.
