Let's see how the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta stacks up against the Honda Accord.
Jetta Power and Performance versus Accord Power and Performance
A car this versatile has a lot to offer -- and that includes engines. With five models and 18 trims to choose from, there's a Jetta out there with the mechanics to suit every driving style. Under the hood of the Jetta, you'll find one of five engines -- the base 2.0L 4-cylinder with 115hp, the Sport 1.8L turbo 4-cylinder with 170hp, the turbodiesel 2.0L 4-cylinder Clean Diesel with 150hp, the Hybrid 1.4L engine, and the 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 210hp. A manual transmission is available on lower models, and automatic is an option. Compare this to the Honda Accord, which offers two Inline 4-cylinder engines-- one at 185hp (or a sport version tuned for 189 horses) and a V6 with 278hp. While the Accord might offer a more powerful engine, the sheer number of choices for adaptable engines for you to choose from makes the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta the sedan for you.
Volkswagen Jetta Value Compared to Honda Accord Value
One of the reasons for the Jetta's massive popularity is due to its pricing and value. The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta keeps up that budget-friendly tradition with its base model starting at just $17,325. The Accord base LX model is almost $5000 more with an MSRP of $22,105. And you get a lot of bang for your buck with the Jetta. Standard amenities include 15-inch wheels, heated power mirrors, Bluetooth, a multifunction steering wheel, power windows and door locks and keyless entry. The base Accord LX comes with some of the same standard features as the 2015 Jetta with additional amenities, but at a premium price.
With a head-to-head comparison, the 2015 Jetta gets 37 mpg highway, while the Inline-4 Accord achieves only an estimated 36 mpg highway with automatic transmission, and the V6 will set you back even more at the pump with only 26 mpg estimated on the highway.
