Have you been trying to decide between the Volkswagen Jetta and the Passat? So have a lot of our Enterprise customers. And let us tell you, we don’t envy them! It’s a tough choice to make. The good news is that you can find both the Volkswagen Passat for sale and the Volkswagen Jetta for sale at Findlay Volkswagen Henderson of Henderson. You can even sign up for a Volkswagen Jetta lease, if you’d rather do that. To help you make this difficult choice, we’ve put together a detailed, side by side base model comparison of the Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat below.

Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat – Cost

Both of these impressive sedans are priced affordably. But the Passat is a bigger car with a more powerful engine than the Jetta, and that’s reflected in the price. You can find the base model Volkswagen Passat S for sale at a perfectly economical starting MSRP of $22,995*. However, the Jetta beats that figure by $4,000. You can find the base model Volkswagen Jetta S for sale at just $18,895* for it’s starting MSRP. And if those prices don’t work for you, you can ask us about the Volkswagen Jetta lease rates or the Passat lease rates. Of course, if you want the best deal, remember to check our specials.

But price isn’t the only way you can save with the Jetta. Its smaller engine produces better EPA-estimated gas mileage. The base model Jetta gets 40 miles per gallon on the highway and 30 miles per gallon in the city. The Passat doesn’t quite reach those numbers, but it’s no gas guzzler, either. It produces an EPA-estimated 34 on the highway and 23 on the city.

Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat – Power

The base model 2020 Jetta S has a smaller engine, a 1.4 Liter I-4, compared to the 2.0 Liter I-4 under the hood of the 2020 Passat S. That means the Passat has more horsepower at 174 hp compared to 147 hp from the Jetta. So, if you value power over economy, the Passat is probably the better choice for you.

Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat – Passenger Space

You can fit five passengers comfortably in both the Jetta and Passat. But those passengers will have more room in the Passat. Every Volkswagen Jetta for sale comes with 95 cubic feet of passenger space. But every Volkswagen Passat for sale has 102 cubic feet. So, if you have a tribe to haul around Las Vegas, then the Passat may be the better choice.
