2015 Chrysler 200 vs. 2015 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler 200 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Jetta with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chrysler 200 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Jetta requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chrysler 200, 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 Chrysler 200 is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Jetta. 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 Chrysler 200 is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Jetta.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 200 is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chrysler 200, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Jetta.

Drivetrain
The Chrysler 200 has much less torque than the Volkswagen Jetta, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chrysler 200 has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Jetta, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 200 has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Jetta. 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 Chrysler 200 and the Volkswagen Jetta. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chrysler 200 as you will in the Volkswagen Jetta.

Warranty
The Chrysler 200 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta.
