2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry Hybrid than the Volkswagen Jetta. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta, the Toyota Camry Hybrid may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Volkswagen Jetta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Jetta.

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

Performance
The Toyota Camry Hybrid has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Jetta, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Volkswagen Jetta. The Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta.
