2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Honda Civic

We’re excited for all that 2019 is bringing us. While the new year is still months away, we’re already getting some fun love from the redesigned Jetta. Redesigned for the 2019 model year, the Jetta has a sleeker design that more closely resembles the larger Passat. How does it compare to another top model like a Honda? See here as we compare the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Honda Civic.

We understand that you expect a lot from your compact sedan. Volkswagen understands that too, and they’ve raised the bar with the newest Jetta. Aside from the stylish exterior redesign, the 2019 Jetta now has a lot of interior comfort and conveniences such as 10-color ambient lighting and a BeatsAudio system, both of which are unavailable in the Civic. What’s even more impressive is the fact that the Jetta made all these changes and actually costs less than the 2018 model. Take a look at some additional specs and features below!
