As you can see, there are benefits to owning either of these impressive Volkswagen models. What’s more, the two models also offer most of the same features and technology. That being the case, deciding between the two can be a matter of personal preference and your priorities as a driver.

With the Passat being larger than the Jetta, if you’re looking for extra space for the family and more room for cargo, it will probably be the better choice. It also offers a more powerful engine, however, the two offer the same torque rating, so you can expect similar acceleration from the two.

Drivers looking to save on the lot and at the gas station may be more inclined to choose the Jetta, which features a smaller, more efficient engine and a lower starting price tag.
