2018 Honda Accord vs. 2018 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Volkswagen Jetta. 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Jetta, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Jetta.

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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Accord transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Jetta.

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. The Honda Accord has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Accord is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Jetta.
