    Ventilated leather seats available in a Jetta...  Would definitely like a version with the 1.8T and an IRS.  I believe the current received an IRS in a midcycle refresh a few years back.

    IIRC don't really remember but I think my TDI Jetta still had the torsion beam rear because they needed room for the urea tank.

    Friend has a nearly new Gasser Jetta and it is a decent little car.

    IIRC, wasn't the IRS just on the sprty trim of the current gen, the GLI maybe? 

    Originally, yes it was only on the GLI. They did bring it back to the entire lineup. I don't know when, but I just checked the site and all the '17s have IRS.

    2014-up are IRS.

     

     

    As for the car, I'll reserve judgement until I see (and drive) one in person. It doesn't exactly look like a VW to me. And I worry about the driving dynamics, as VW has been a little hit or miss with those as of late.

    I will report my impressions at the first opportunity.
