2018 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volkswagen Jetta offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Camry Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta, drivers may find the Toyota Camry Hybrid a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen Jetta, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 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. In this case, the Volkswagen Jetta will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

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. 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid.

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

Handling
The Volkswagen Jetta has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Volkswagen Jetta as you will in the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volkswagen Jetta than that of the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
