2018 Subaru Legacy vs. 2019 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy and the Volkswagen Jetta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Legacy is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Subaru Legacy takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Jetta.

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

Handling
The Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy and the Volkswagen Jetta. The Subaru Legacy has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru Legacy is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Jetta.
