2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2017 Honda Civic

If you are on the hunt for a new car, a good way to start is by figuring out which size is right for you. We recommend a compact sedan because they are classy, yet extremely efficient. The compact sedan of the Volkswagen model lineup is the Jetta, which has been lauded for being extremely comfortable while having the ability to take you to far-reaching places with fewer fill-ups. However, the compact sedan market is quite saturated so the Volkswagen Jetta has a lot of competitors—including the Honda Civic. Let us present a comparison between these two models to help you decide which one is right for you.
