2016 Mazda Mazda6 vs. 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mazda Mazda6 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Jetta with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta, the Mazda Mazda6 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Mazda Mazda6 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). Whether you pick the Mazda Mazda6 or the Volkswagen Jetta, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda Mazda6 and the Volkswagen Jetta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda Mazda6 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 Mazda Mazda6, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mazda Mazda6 and the Volkswagen Jetta do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda6 has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Jetta, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda Mazda6 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 Mazda Mazda6 and the Volkswagen Jetta. The Mazda Mazda6 has less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Jetta, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mazda Mazda6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta.
