2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Dart as you will with the Volkswagen Jetta, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Dart will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Dodge Dart is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Jetta.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Dart is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Dart and the Volkswagen Jetta.

Warranty
The Dodge Dart comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta.
