2014 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry Hybrid than the Volkswagen Jetta, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volkswagen Jetta will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Camry 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 Volkswagen Jetta and the Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Jetta is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Volkswagen Jetta is slightly shorter than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Volkswagen Jetta does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

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

Performance
The Volkswagen Jetta has less horsepower than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Volkswagen Jetta has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Warranty
The Volkswagen Jetta comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
