2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2019 Volkswagen Passat

If you’re looking for a sharply-designed, capable, and fuel efficient sedan, you’ll almost certainly compare the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat at one point or another! After all, both VW cars have so much to offer the drivers of Stroudsburg and Fountain Hill.

Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat: Starting Cost

Whether you’re looking for a Volkswagen Jetta lease or a way to finance the Volkswagen Passat, you’ll find that both sedans are affordable:

  • The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta price ranges from $18,745 MSRP* to $27,695 MSRP*
  • The 2019 Volkswagen Passat price structure starts $25,295 MSRP*, and ends at $29,995 MSRP*.

So, comparing the Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat on price, you’ll find that the base Jetta trim is significantly less expensive than the base Passat. However, the difference between them shrinks if you decide to upgrade.

Interior Dimensions of the VW Jetta vs. VW Passat

By the numbers, the compact Jetta is certainly smaller than the mid-size Passat:

  • 2019 Volkswagen Jetta Interior
    • 94.7 cubic feet of passenger space
    • 14.1 cubic feet of cargo volume
  • 2019 Volkswagen Passat Interior
    • 102 cubic feet of passenger space
    • 15.9 cubic feet of cargo volume

Despite the differences between them, the Jetta interior and the Passat interior can both seat five passengers easily, on shorter drives and longer road trips alike. Although the Passat trunk is almost two cubic feet larger than that which belongs to the Jetta, both offer enough space for groceries and gear.

Which VW Sedan Will Perform to Your Satisfaction?

If you’re comparing the Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat, you’ll have to answer that age old question: “What’s more important: Fuel economy or horsepower?” Neither vehicle disappoints, but each has certain advantages over the other:

  • With the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, you’ll receive a 1.4-liter turbocharged Inline 4-Cylinder engine, the only one available in this sedan. It delivers 147 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, while achieving EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 mpg city, 40 mpg highway.
  • Those who choose the 2019 Volkswagen Passat will possess a larger 2.0-liter turbocharged Inline 4-cylinder engine. As one would expect, the larger engine is stronger with 174 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. With EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, the Passat gas mileage falls just short of the high standard set by the Jetta.
