Jetta vs Honda Civic

Compare the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta to the Honda Civic in Huntington, NY

Two popular choices for sedan drivers in New York are the Volkswagen Jetta and Honda Civic. While both offer similar features and even a similar base price, you'll easily see why the Jetta is the smart choice when it comes to your next sedan.

Power and Performance

  • The Volkswagen Jetta and Honda Civic both offer numerous engine options to choose from, though the base engine of the Jetta is turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder offering 184 lb-ft of torque.
  • You'll have to pay a pretty penny to get the most powerful and exhilarating engines on your new Civic, while you can get a turbocharged engine standard with the Jetta.
  • The Jetta has always been a fun-to-drive vehicle with athletic performance and handling, and this year is no different. The Civic has sporty options, but lacks the certain appeal of Volkswagen performance.

Features, Technology and Safety

  • The Jetta offers more trunk space than the Civic, allowing you to carry more in a versatile trunk, that also offers a pass-through rear seat for longer items like skis.
  • The Civic has a clunky and often times difficult to use infotainment system. The base system doesn't even offer a touchscreen, and the touchscreen version features sensitive buttons for climate control that are difficult to use and often slow to respond to inputs.
  • The Jetta comes standard with a touchscreen infotainment system that's easy to use, and you can opt for an available Digital Cockpit system for even more convenience.
  • The Intelligent Crash Response System that's included standard on the 2019 Jetta offers you added peace of mind in the event of an accident, by shutting off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and turn on your hazard lights. The Civic only features a rearview backup camera standard,  which the Jetta also provides.

Available Trim Levels and Option Packages

  • The Civic offers numerous trims and body styles available, that can get confusing and don't offer as much as you would think.
  • Easily find the right combination of features and amenities when you shop with Volkswagen, offering numerous standard features, even on the lower trims.
  • The Volkswagen Jetta offers an impressive 6-year, 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, the Honda Civic only offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
