2017 Honda Accord vs. 2017 Volkswagen Golf R Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Golf R, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Accord will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Golf R. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Golf R have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Accord is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Golf R. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Golf R.

Warranty
The Honda Accord comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Golf R.
