Before the first Spitzer VW customer drives home in a 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, they should know that the automaker is going to be looking out for them. The 2019 Jetta will be covered by Volkswagen's People First Warranty. VW is offering six years or 72,000 miles of coverage for the most important components of the Jetta, including the engine and transmission. No other automaker can match the length of coverage, including Honda. Both the 2019 Jetta and 2019 Civic will offer infotainment systems that are compatible with Android- and Apple-based smartphones. However, the 2019 Jetta will also be able to make use of new features added to VW Car-Net application that will help owners keep track of their vehicle at all times as well as find off-street parking.

Why should I pick the 2019 Jetta over the Civic?

Both the 2019 VW Jetta and 2019 Honda Civic are powered by four-cylinder engines that each produce similar outputs in terms of performance. Additionally, base versions of both popular compact sedans use a six-speed manual transmission. One area where the all-new Jetta is able to clearly offer more to its owners is in fuel economy. In a scenario where both vehicles are equipped with manual transmission, respective owners can expect to see up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway. However, in the city, the new Jetta can achieve up to 30 miles per gallon with the Civic topping out at 28 miles per gallon. This may not seem like much of a difference to worry about. But over the life cycle of a vehicle, it can account for a lot of savings or unnecessary extra cost.
