2017 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Accord offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Jetta with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Jetta in the front seats.

Convenience
The Honda Accord will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Jetta, 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 Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Jetta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Accord is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta, 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 Honda Accord, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Jetta do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Jetta. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Accord as you will in the Volkswagen Jetta.

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