Advantages of the 2019 Volkswagen Golf Over the 2019 Honda Civic

Deciding which hatchback will meet your needs can be difficult, especially since it seems like every brand now has one. Two of the ones that are always at the top of their class are the Volkswagen Golf and the Honda Civic, but we want to help you see how they differentiate from each other and which one you might want for your daily driver.

The People First Warranty

A warranty can measure the confidence that a manufacturer has in its vehicles: the longer the warranty, the longer the brand is sure their vehicle will hold up. The Volkswagen warranty is twice as long as the warranty from Honda, helping you see that the Golf will most likely be more reliable for a longer time.

A Better Infotainment System

The 2019 Honda Civic slacks behind many competitors in terms of infotainment ease of use and options, but the Golf does not. The Golf offers an intuitive system that comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone connectivity: two systems the Honda Civic doesn't even offer.

Traditional Versus Exciting

The Honda Civic hatchback follows the same design that the sedan has for many years - with the obvious exception that it is a hatchback - keeping it from standing out in a crowd. On the other hand, the Golf has a unique look that no other model can emulate, being a unique option that you won't find anywhere else.

More Space for Better Traveling

The Golf offers more cargo space than the Civic with 53.7 cubic feet versus 46.2 cubic feet, allowing you to bring along more of what you really need. With less space in the Civic, you might need to resort to moving gear to the passenger seats, which will take serious space from your passengers.

Experience the Volkswagen Golf When You Visit our Dealership

We want you to know which hatchback offers everything that you might need in your life, which is why you are encouraged to visit our dealership to schedule a test drive. You can do all of the online research that you think you will need, but there is no experience quite like being behind the wheel and feeling what each model can do for you.
