The Volkswagen Jetta vs. the Competition

When you're looking for a new sedan, there is a plethora of options to search through to find the best one for you and your budget. It's a search that can take you from website to website, dealership to dealership, in search of that perfect vehicle taking more and more time out of your busy schedule. Well, here at Jim Ellis Volkswagen of Kennesaw, we know just how well our VW Jetta stands up to the competition, and believe that your car-buying experience should be as easy and stress-free as possible. So, with that in mind, we want to help save you time and show you just how the VW Jetta compares to two of its competitors: The Toyota Corolla, and the Honda Civic. For the sake of time, we will be comparing the base trim of each model.


Cost is always an essential part of the car-buying process, and in many ways, it can be the final say in determining your choice so that we will start with it. Standing side-by-side, the Volkswagen Jetta Sedan has the lowest MSRP compared to the Toyota Corolla Sedan dan the Honda Civic Sedan.


The Volkswagen Jetta comes standard with a five-speed automatic transmission, and it has the most torque out of the three vehicles. It also has the longest drive range of the three, boasting a fuel economy of 28 miles per gallon in the city and 40 miles per gallon on the highway, and holding the largest fuel capacity as well.

Interior Comfort

Looking beyond the VW Jetta's stylish exterior, we now look inside the Jetta's spacious interior. While it sits neck and neck with the other two sedans, the VW Jetta is the only one out of the three that comes with available heated/cooled seats on the base model while the other two are stuck with basic cloth seats.


Probably the only factor that can compete with cost as an essential element to consider in the car-buying process, we end with the VW Jetta's safety features. The Jetta once again hangs neck and neck with the competition with standard features like Child Seat Anchors and Traction control. But, it meets these safety standards while also holding a far lower MSRP than its competition, creating a beautiful combination of high levels of safety and affordability.
