Immediate references to the Vento are inevitable and if you did so, don't worry - we did it too.
Understated has always been the operative word at Volkswagen and the Jetta sits neatly between the Passat and the Vento, perhaps leaning a bit too much toward its younger sibling.
That said, the Jetta looks nothing like its predecessor and it now has more of a coupe-like stance, raked windscreen/A-pillar, et al.
The distinctions are there, but in fine print.
