The Jetta GLI is essentially a GTI -- the car many of us fathers lusted after before kids came along -- with a roomy back seat and trunk. This is German engineering at its best: The GLI has a quick turbo engine, a refined ride, and exceptionally sharp handling that is difficult to trip up, even on the most challenging roads. And with its big back seat and roomy trunk, it just happens to be a great family car, too.
