Performance Options

As compact cars, the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta and 2022 Honda Civic have agile handling and are lightweight, which means you don't need as powerful an engine for an exciting time. Still, the new Volkswagen Jetta has plenty of power under the hood to go with easier handling than the Honda Civic. The Volkswagen sedan has a smoother-shifting transmission with eight speeds for a more comfortable and thrilling drive! You won't find the same in the Honda Civic.

A More Enjoyable Interior

The Volkswagen Jetta stands out no matter the situation because it provides sleeker looks and more eye-catching color options than the Honda Civic. The personality you get with a new Volkswagen Jetta is part of what has made it such a fan-favorite compact over the years, but it's not just about looks. The new Volkswagen Jetta also provides finer upholstery, like real leather seats, and more storage options than what you'll enjoy in the Honda Civic.


A recent redesign means that the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta gives drivers more to work with feature-wise than the 2022 Honda Civic, and those features provide added value. Every new Volkswagen Jetta for sale comes standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, while the Honda Civic makes you pay $2,000 more to have these features standard. The Volkswagen Jetta also goes above and beyond with its features, which include ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, which aren't common in compact cars and aren't a part of the Honda Civic's feature package.
