2015 Subaru Legacy vs. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru Legacy offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Subaru Legacy will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Convenience
The Subaru Legacy will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy and the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Legacy is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, 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 Subaru Legacy, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

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

Handling
The Subaru Legacy has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, 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 Hybrid.

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 Hybrid. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Subaru Legacy will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Warranty
The Subaru Legacy comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.
