Compare to the Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze & Ford Focus

The 2016 Volkswagen Jetta has always reigned at the top of its segment. Offered in an array of trim levels and with five turbocharged engines to choose from, the Jetta is a hard vehicle to beat. To prove this, the Brown's VW team has done their research to find out what makes the Jetta such a better choice. Check it out below:

The Volkswagen Jetta vs. the Honda Civic in Richmond

  • While the Honda Civic is known for its power, it doesn't have enough to outpace the Jetta. With only 143-horsepower to its name, the Civic doesn't offer the speed that a Jetta can.
  • For many, it comes down to safety features. Equipped with an Intelligent Crash Response System, the Jetta has earned itself quite a few safety accolades. Unfortunately, this system can't be found on the Honda Civic.
  • If you're going to drive a sedan, you're likely to want one that's got style. While the Honda Civic certainly has its own look, we find the Jetta to be a much more elegant option.

The Volkswagen Jetta vs. the Chevrolet Cruze in Richmond

  • If you're hoping for a powerful ride, look no further than the Volkswagen Jetta. With 150-horsepower, the Jetta offers far more power behind the wheel than its Chevrolet competition.
  • If you're anything like the Brown's VW team, you put safety first. While the Chevrolet Cruze does come with a handful of desirable safety features, it simply doesn't compare to the Jetta's Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.
  • When it comes to tech-savvy features such as Bluetooth, the Chevrolet Cruze misses out. Fortunately, the Volkswagen Jetta comes standard with Bluetooth handsfree calling and audio streaming.


The VW Jetta vs. the Ford Focus in Richmond

  • When it comes to exterior features, the Volkswagen Jetta has a lot to offer. Unlike the Ford Focus, the Jetta comes equipped with heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals and LED license plate lighting.
  • If you're one for long drives, then you're likely to want a vehicle equipped with cruise control. Unfortunately, cruise control isn't available on base Focus models like it is on the Volkswagen Jetta.
  • If you think manual windows are a thing of the past, then the Volkswagen Jetta is the car for you. Unlike the Ford Focus, the Jetta has four power windows with pinch protection and a 1-touch feature.
