2014 Honda Crosstour vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
With the Honda Crosstour you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, 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). The Honda Crosstour is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen. 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 Crosstour and the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Crosstour is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Honda Crosstour, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Crosstour doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

Handling
The Honda Crosstour has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Crosstour is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Crosstour and the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen. The Honda Crosstour has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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