Comparing the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and 2020 Honda Civic

The compact car class provides a wide range of models to consider, but several stand out above the crowd. The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and 2020 Honda Civic are two such models, and they share several similarities while differing in many areas. We know that many car shoppers are trying to choose between the Volkswagen Jetta and Honda Civic, which is why we compare the compact sedans below!

Performance Options

As compact cars, both the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and 2020 Honda Civic have agile handling and are lightweight, which means you don't need as powerful an engine for an exciting time.

Still, the new Volkswagen Jetta has plenty of power under the hood to go with easier handling than the Honda Civic.

Plus, the Volkswagen sedan has a smoother-shifting transmission for a more comfortable and thrilling drive!

A More Enjoyable Interior

The Volkswagen Jetta stands out no matter the situation because it provides sleeker looks and more eye-catching color options than the Honda Civic.

The personality you get with a new Volkswagen Jetta is part of what has made it such a fan-favorite compact over the years, but it's not just about looks.

The new Volkswagen Jetta also provides finer upholstery, like real leather seats, and more storage options than what you'll enjoy in the Honda Civic.


A recent redesign means that the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta gives drivers more to work with feature-wise than the 2020 Honda Civic, and those features provide added value. Every new Volkswagen Jetta for sale comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which the Honda Civic can't claim. The Volkswagen Jetta also goes above and beyond with its features, which include ventilated front seats and a wireless charging pad, which aren't common in compact cars and aren't a part of the Honda Civic's feature package.
