2014 Ford Fusion vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Ford Fusion offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion 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 Ford Fusion 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 Ford Fusion and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Fusion, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Ford Fusion does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion 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 Ford Fusion and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Fusion will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Warranty
The Ford Fusion comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.
