But maybe you’re wondering how the Jetta stacks up against the competition, like the Honda Civic. That’s why we’ve put together a detailed 2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs. Honda Civic comparison below. Our VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic comparison will deal with three areas: cost, performance, and cool features. So, let’s get this Jetta vs. Civic showdown on the road!

2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs. Honda Civic: Cost

The starting MSRP for the Volkswagen Jetta comes in about a couple of thousand dollars less than the Honda Civic. That’s just $18,895 for the 2020 Jetta compared to $20,650 for the 2020 Civic. But the starting price isn’t the only way you’ll save with the Jetta. The Jetta gets better gas mileage, as well. Expect to get an impressive EPA-estimated 40 miles per gallon in the city with the Jetta, as opposed to just 38 miles per gallon from the Civic. When it comes to cost, the Volkswagen is the clear winner in this Jetta vs. Civic contest.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs. Honda Civic: Performance

Expect to get a whole lot more torque from the Jetta than the Civic. We’re talking 184 lb-ft vs. 162 lb-ft. What is torque good for? The higher the torque a car’s engine can produce, the faster it can accelerate. Higher torque better enables a vehicle to climb hills, as well. The German engineering found in the Jetta ensures you’ll get the best performance possible. That’s why it comes out the winner in this VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic showdown.

2020 VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic: Cool Features

The 2020 Jetta comes equipped with several cool features that aren’t available in the Civic. We’re talking features like driver personalization and Wi-Fi hotspot capability.
