Drivers have plenty of good things to say about the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2019 Honda Civic, but only one of these well-loved commuter cars has everything you need for your trips around Huntington and Hempstead. Compare the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs. Honda Civic with Platinum Volkswagen to make the choice that’s right for you.

Performance: VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic

Although it starts out with a lower price than its rival, the VW Jetta actually does significantly better on the roads of the Bayside region. With winning EPA-estimated fuel economy in the city and on the highway, it’s easy to see why regular commuters prefer VW.

Interior Features: VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic

No matter which of these two compact sedans you settle on, you’ll receive standard features like Bluetooth® hands-free calling, Bluetooth® audio streaming, a rearview camera, and cruise control.

However, only those who opt for the VW Jetta will receive 60/40 split-fold rear seats and 12-volt power outlets in the base trim. What’s more, the VW Jetta includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen, standard, while the Civic only includes a 5-inch LCD display. Those who upgrade the Civic will be able to equip a 7-inch touchscreen, but with an 8-inch touchscreen available in upgraded models, the VW wins again. The Jetta also offers unique ambient lighting options.

Safety: VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic

The Civic is available with the Honda Sensing® safety suite, so one might assume that it provides a safer drive for individuals and families near Hicksville. However, the Jetta is also available with an advanced safety package that includes most of the features listed with Honda Sensing®, including a forward collision warning.

So, which compact sedan provides more security? Since only the Jetta safety system includes a blind spot warning system, and it’s available in the base trim, we think it’s the better option for our neighbors. To receive a similar feature in the Civic, you’ll need to upgrade with the more expensive Civic EX trim level.
