2014 Acura TSX 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 TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TSX and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TSX as you will with the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 TSX 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 Acura TSX will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Acura TSX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TSX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Handling
The Acura TSX 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 TSX has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The Acura TSX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

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