2014 Acura ILX Hybrid vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid than the Acura ILX Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, the Acura ILX Hybrid may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Acura ILX Hybrid, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura ILX Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Acura ILX Hybrid is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Acura ILX Hybrid is about the same width as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The Acura ILX Hybrid is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Acura ILX Hybrid has much less torque than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura ILX Hybrid has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura ILX Hybrid and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The Acura ILX Hybrid has less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura ILX Hybrid than that of the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.
