Comparing the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and 2019 Honda Civic

You can trust the team at Volkswagen of Old Saybrook to help you find the vehicle that will meet the needs of your life. We want to look at two of the most popular options on the market, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2019 Honda Civic to help you see which one will be able to meet all the needs of your life.

Performance Options

While both of these models are considered to be exciting, there is one that clearly offers more. Choosing the Jetta 2.0-liter turbocharged engine offers up to 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque while the most powerful Honda Civic only offers up to 180 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.

The Jetta is even known to have better maneuverability than the Honda Civic, being able to have more control when cornering and being able to take a tighter turn radius.

A More Enjoyable Interior

The Volkswagen Jetta does more to keep passengers as comfortable as possible. The trunk is larger than that of the Honda Civic, allowing you to fit more so that you don't need to clutter your passenger space. You will also enjoy that the Jetta is designed to let in less road noise than the Civic, giving you an overall better experience on a bumpy or roughly paved road.

Rear passengers will benefit from more legroom and headroom than they would get from sitting in the Honda Civic.

More Advanced Safety

The 2019 Jetta comes with some standard safety features that the Honda Civic doesn't include. Some of these features include whiplash protection, post collision braking, and cross-path warning system.

Both models scored as high as possible on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests, but the extra features in the Jetta really set it apart.
