2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2020 Honda Civic

Serving Troy, MI

Deciding between the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2020 Honda Civic can seem difficult initially. After all, these compact cars both have excellent reputations and are priced comparably. However, their many differences become apparent when you compare their styles and features.


The stunning style of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta will undoubtedly catch your eye. While the profile is upright and confident, the dramatic personality lines that swoop through the side panels and down the hood create a sense of movement. At the front of the Jetta, the LED headlights integrate seamlessly with the hexagonal grille. The other outer features of the 2020 Jetta are a spoiler, dual exhaust tips, and foglamps. On the other hand, the 2020 Honda Civic stands at an angle with a sloped hood that edges up to a tapered roof. This angled design extends through the doors. The Civic’s grille gives the front end a sense of distinction as it turns upward to connect with the pointed headlights.


The contemporary style that starts on the Jetta exterior continues throughout the cabin. Uniquely, the center console trends upward dramatically to connect effortlessly with the center stack. Combined with a flat-bottom steering wheel, the impact is a cockpit-like feel. Other equipment in the 2020 Jetta are a digital screen for the drive’s gauges, a second digital screen for the infotainment system, leather, and heated seats, smart device app integration, and more. The 2020 Civic’s interior shows off a 5-inch display screen at the top of the center stack. Additional features in the Civic include cloth or leather seats, sound insulation, and an audio system. If you walk up to the higher Civic trims for the 2020 model year, your car may have a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, and other items.


Throughout the trim line of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta, you can appreciate a host of advanced safety features keeping you and your passengers safe. A few of these are post-collision automatic braking, a rear monitor, an intelligent crash response system, six stability enhancers, and other items. The standard equipment across the Civic’s trim line includes essential items like LATCH child safety equipment, airbags, and a tire pressure monitor.
