I would go for the Jetta, but look for a lightly used '09 instead of the "new" 2010.

While the Golf and GTI are built on the Mark VI platform, the Jetta is just a face-lift with some interior pretty bits. All the bits you can't see are absolutely identical to the '09, so you're paying a premium for some very superficial changes.

It drives me crazy that most motoring journalists have not really highlighted this situation. I guess most people wouldn't notice anyway, but it's a bit disingenuous of VW to claim the JSW is as new as the Golf and GTI.
