2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 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 SportWagen in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Acura TSX you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 SportWagen.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura TSX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

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

Handling
The Acura TSX has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

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 SportWagen. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura TSX as you will in the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

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