2015 Buick Verano 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 Buick Verano, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, the Buick Verano 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 Buick Verano, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Verano will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Buick Verano is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Buick Verano is a little wider than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Buick Verano takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

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

Handling
The Buick Verano 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 Buick Verano is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Verano and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The Buick Verano 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 Buick Verano than that of the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.
