Choosing to buy a Volkswagen is easy, but choosing which Volkswagen can buy can be a challenge- there’s just so many great options! Those looking for a great compact car may find themselves torn between the iconic modern sedan and the iconic modern hatchback.
The relieving news is that you really can’t go wrong with a Volkswagen; no matter what you choose, it’s going to do you well. As of this year, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and 2019 Volkswagen Golf both come with the same single engine option. So what sets these two models apart?
2019 Volkswagen Jetta
2019 Volkswagen Golf
|147-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder||Engine||147-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder|
|30 city / 40 highway mpg||Fuel Economy||29 city / 37 highway|
|14.1 cubic feet||Cargo Volume||17.4 cubic feet, 53.7 with seat area|
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf is more expensive, with slightly worse fuel-economy, but it has truly awesome cargo capabilities, with the possibility of a full 53.7 cubic feet in back. The fuel economy is not as good as that of the 2019 Jetta, but it’s still quite impressive. The 2019 Golf also has more standard features and an excessively nice cabin.
