At Jennings Volkswagen we know you want to cruise the roads around Glenview in style, and that’s why you love the Volkswagen brand. The Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat is a difficult decision. Both vehicles have their fans. The Passat has a lot of great standard features, but the Jetta got a complete overhaul for 2019. The following will help you choose between the Volkswagen Jetta vs. Passat.

Price & Trims

Not surprisingly, the smaller 2019 Volkswagen Jetta has a lower MSRP at $18,745 while the 2019 Passat has an MSRP of $25,295. The Jetta’s top trim level is also cheaper, $27,695 for the Jetta SEL vs. $29,995 for the top-of-the-line Passat SE R-Line.

The Jetta has five trims available. You can choose from the basic S model with a manual transmission to the SEL Premium, loaded with amenities. The Passat’s has only two variations: the well-equipped Wolfsburg Edition and the super well- equipped SE R-Line. Regardless of which model and trim you choose, you’ll be cruising the Chicago roads in style.


The Passat wins in comfort, with more legroom, and more features than the Jetta. However, it comes at a higher price point for all that comfort. The Passat has:

  • Push-button start
  • Proximity key entry
  • Three USB ports
  • HD Radio, and satellite radio

The Jetta does have a slightly larger 6.5-inch touch screen with better graphics. When comparing the Volkswagen Passat for sale and the Volkswagen Jetta for sale, you’ll find that they both have the VW Car-Net App-Connect system for smartphone connectivity that is compatible with both Apple and Android.
