How Does the Volkswagen Jetta Stack Up Against the Honda Civic?

Even with all that the Volkswagen Jetta includes or has available, there are still other popular sedans on the market. If you are wondering how the inspiring Jetta compares to other cars, like the Honda Civic, you can find out more below.

While there are many benefits to both vehicles, the Volkswagen Jetta takes the lead when it comes to space. Though the Honda Civic has slightly more front legroom, the Volkswagen Jetta is more spacious with a rear legroom of 38.1-inches compared to the 37.4-inches that the Honda Civic offers. The Jetta also comes equipped with more cargo volume. So, if you are looking for the ideal-sized sedan that offers plenty of storage, the Jetta is it! Offering 15.7 cubic feet of cargo volume, it is superior compared to the 15.1 cubic feet of its competitor.

When it comes to comfortable seating and safety features, while both vehicles offer features like a Tire Pressure Monitoring System and Electronic Stability Control, the Volkswagen Jetta comes with both Engine Brake Assist and Hydraulic Brake Assist, when the Honda Civic only has one Brake Assist that comes standard. Also, even on the base trim, the Volkswagen Jetta has heated front seats available if you go with the Cold Weather package. This is unlike the Honda Civic that only offers the convenient feature when you go up in trim levels.


The Volkswagen Jetta vs. The Mazda3

These two models share some similarities, but ultimately Austin car shoppers will find that the Volkswagen Jetta has advantages in the most important areas. These areas include performance, space, and features, which you can read about below.

Georgetown drivers will have choices for both cars when it comes to the engines, but those of the Volkswagen Jetta give you a little more thrill. Each one of its engines has the equal or better torque specs than the Mazda3's most powerful engine, and the 2.0-liter Turbo engine of the Volkswagen Jetta has much more horsepower and torque. If it's efficiency you crave, you'll enjoy 33 mpg combined in the Volkswagen Jetta compared to 31 mpg combined in the Mazda3.

The advantage in power makes for a more exciting drive, and the Volkswagen Jetta is more spacious, so all passengers can enjoy it. Round Rock rear-seat passengers will have more leg room, so they can stretch out, and the extended trunk space lets you bring more with you than the Mazda3 does.

Speaking of bringing more, Cedar Park drivers will have more convenient features in the Volkswagen Jetta. You can hear your favorite music and use your favorite apps thanks to Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto integration in the infotainment system, which the Mazda3 does not offer. You'll also find more charging options in the Volkswagen Jetta, so everyone can keep their phone charged.

Both models offer safety features like blind spot monitors, lane keep assist, and more, but only the Volkswagen Jetta has a parking aid. With Park Pilot, the car handles the steering as you parallel park, which can be tricky for even the most experienced drivers.
