If you’re searching for a reliable new compact car, then you’ve probably checked out the 2019 Honda Civic. While the Civic is well-known for safety and reliability, offering drivers access to four-wheel ABS, rearview camera, and blind spot warning, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta provides all that and more, making it a great choice for all sorts of drivers. Compare the Volkswagen Jetta vs. Honda Civic below!

 

Jetta vs. Civic: Safety

Both the Honda and the Jetta provide access to the latest advanced safety, but the Honda falls short in some key areas:

  • The Volkswagen Jetta has a standard automatic post-collision braking system that’ll automatically apply the brakes to prevent a secondary collision. The Honda doesn’t offer this system, which could allow more collisions to occur after the initial crash.
  • The Volkswagen Jetta also offers an optional rear cross-path warning system to alert drivers to obstacles moving into the vehicle’s blind spots during reversing. The Civic doesn’t have such a system, so backing accidents are more likely even when the camera is in use.

Jetta vs. Civic: Power & Efficiency

In the case of the VW Jetta vs. Honda Civic, the Volkswagen Sedan offers a more powerful engine:

  • The standard 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine available on all Jetta models, including the Jetta S, generates 184 lb-ft of peak torque, 46 more than the Civic’s standard 2.0L 4-cylinder which manages just 138 lb-ft.
  • When equipped with an automatic transmission, the Jetta will automatically shut down the engine when stopped, helping to save fuel and reduce emissions. The Civic doesn’t offer automatic engine start/stop.

Jetta vs. Civic: Comfort & Convenience

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta offers drivers access to high-tech amenities they won’t find on the Honda Civic:

  • The Jetta offers multi-driver memory settings, so drivers can store and adjust seat position and outside memory angle. The Civic doesn’t offer driver memory.
  • The Jetta SE trim and above all offer available heated washer nozzles to help clear ice and snow from the vehicle’s windshield — perfect for frigid Chicago winters. The Civic doesn’t offer heated nozzles.
  • Jetta drivers can opt for creature comforts like air conditioned seats, a heated steering wheel, and cornering headlights for improved visibility. The Civic doesn’t offer any of these features
