September 20, 2012 at 09:25

As we have noticed new Volkswagesna re simply conquering the world, therefore we have prepared a new fight for you in which you could see how the same car brand will compete with the fellow model-mate, in the same car type class. Today we will be looking at the sedans of the great tradition German automaker – Volkswagen. The models that we have brought to the ring today are the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2012 Volkswagen Passat. It is true that one would most usually see new Passat in the form of a wagon, therefore it is even more interesting to see how new Passat in the sedan type will look like in the fight.

The price of the new Passat of the year 2012 got as high as $19,900, while new Jetta will costs its new owner about $14,600. Right at this point the difference is quite big, but let’s see if the difference in the core is the same as in the price sense. New Passat is equipped with 2.5-Liter I5 engine that produces about 170-horsepower. New Jetta in turn got the 2.0-Liter I4 engine with 115-horsepower. So we see, less power and less volume for lower price. Though new Jetta is 2mpg in front than new Passat with 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.

So in the end, even though we use to look at the price quite often, we still think that new Passat offers more class, so it wins the fight!
