2015 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2015 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volkswagen Jetta as you will with the Honda Accord, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the Volkswagen Jetta is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Accord. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volkswagen Jetta and the Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Jetta is much slimmer than the Honda Accord, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volkswagen Jetta, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Accord.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Volkswagen Jetta transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Accord.

Handling
The Volkswagen Jetta has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Volkswagen Jetta has less horsepower than the Honda Accord, 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 Volkswagen Jetta and the Honda Accord. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Volkswagen Jetta as you will in the Honda Accord.

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