Volkswagen Jetta vs Honda Accord

When it comes to a powerful sedan that packs in safety and performance, the Volkswagen Jetta and Honda Accord are both excellent choices. But which vehicle really has what you’re looking for in your next car?

We can help. At Oklahoma City Volkswagen, we took both vehicles for a test drive through Oklahoma City, Norman, and Edmond to see how they really stack up. Read on for our comprehensive Volkswagen Jetta vs. Honda Accord comparison.

Fuel Efficiency

2019 Volkswagen Jetta SpecsBoth the Volkswagen Jetta and Honda Accord come with impressive fuel efficiency. The Volkswagen Jetta offers an EPA-estimated 30 city MPG / 40 highway MPG / 34 combined MPG.[1] It’s a great way to save money and help the environment at the same time—now we call that a win-win situation.

On the other hand, the Honda Accord also comes with solid fuel efficiency that will keep you spending more time on the road and less time gassing up. It gives you an EPA-estimated 30 city MPG / 38 highway MPG / 33 combined MPG.[2] This is slightly less than the fuel efficiency offered by the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta.

Entertainment & Connectivity

You’ll love the entertainment features that come standard with the Volkswagen Jetta! It comes with Volkswagen Car-Net® App Connect, which allows you to access compatible apps quickly and easily directly from the convenience of your touchscreen. You’ll also enjoy the driver personalization that lets you customize your driving experience, so that it’s unique to you and you alone.

With both vehicles, you’ll enjoy Bluetooth® technology with audio streaming, which lets you sync up your compatible smartphone to access your favorite playlists and podcasts no matter where you go. However, the Honda Accord does not come with Volkswagen Car-Net® App Connect, which may leave drivers missing out on their favorite apps.
