The Volkswagen Jetta vs. The Honda Civic

When it comes to the spacious interior for cargo and passengers, the Jetta exceeds the Honda Civic with comfort space. Prospecting buyers can look forward to 15.7 cubic feet of cargo volume in the Jetta and 94.1 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Jetta, compared to the 12.1 cubic feet of cargo and 91 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Civic. The Jetta also has extended rear passenger legroom and headroom for a less cramped commute. Drivers will also have a six year or 72,000-mile warranty when choosing Volkswagen compared to the three-year/ 36,000-mile warranty for the Honda Civic.

The Volkswagen Jetta vs. The Chevy Bolt

The Volkswagen Jetta again comes out on top with a better warranty than the Chevy Bolt, and for drivers seeking more of a sporty commute for the roads and highways of Grand Rapids, the Chevy Bolt may provide better fuel efficiency, but lacks in the areas of style, and comfort. The Jetta offers more front and rear shoulder room as well as rear legroom, and remains more affordable than the Chevy Bolt with an MSRP range of $19k-$30k, whereas the Bolt remains $37k-$41k. The Bolt design is new for the Chevy brand and lacks in the areas of a sharp and sleek exterior style. Great for those looking for a Hatchback model, but nothing compared to the sleek and sporty appearance of the Jetta sedan.


The Volkswagen Jetta vs. The Ford Focus

When compared to the Ford Focus, the Volkswagen Jetta gives drivers enhanced fuel mileage with a combination of 32 mpg compared to the Focus model's 30 mpg combined. The Jetta also offers a quicker engine with the standard four-cylinder turbo engine with the responsive six-speed automatic with Tiptronic and Sport Mode. Both Basic and Powertrain warranties are extended with the Jetta and drivers can look forward to  six-year/72,000 mile basic, six-year/72,000 mile Powertrain and a twelve-year unlimited mile corrosion/rust warranty which is ideal for the Michigan driving elements we face yearly. The Ford Focus offers only a three-year/36,000 mile basic warranty, five-year/60,000 mile warranty, and five-years/unlimited miles for the corrosion/rust warranty. Drivers truly receive more for their money when choosing the Volkswagen brand over Ford.
