2014 Honda Civic Hybrid vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid than the Honda Civic Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, the Honda Civic Hybrid 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 Honda Civic Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Honda Civic Hybrid and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Hybrid is a little narrower than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Drivetrain
The Honda Civic Hybrid has much less torque than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Civic Hybrid has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. 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 Civic Hybrid and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. The Honda Civic Hybrid has less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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