2016 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2016 Volkswagen Jetta
While we wait in anticipation for the next entry into the all-new Honda Civic family to show its grill, we’ll continue to talk about the last member of the family to be released – the Civic Coupe. The Civic was first introduced back in 1972, and the coupe has pretty much been around ever since. Ten generations and a few decades later, and we’ve got the sportiest 2-door vehicle to ever grace the Civic lineup. But how does it measure up to equally-iconic vehicles? We thought we’d find out by comparing the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2016 Volkswagen Jetta to see how they measure up to one another.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe
Taking a look at the table above, you can see how similar the two vehicles are yet, at the same time, how dominant the Honda Civic Coupe is. It might not have any massive advantages, but it does have some advantage in every category that we looked at. Starting at the top, it’s more efficient both through city streets like those in downtown Edmonton, and on the highway. In the city, it utilizes 0.6 l/100km less fuel than the Jetta, and on the highway 0.3 l/100km less. Again, not a huge advantage, but enough to save you some change at the pump over time.
In terms of horsepower, the Civic Coupe only has an extra 8 horsepower. While that might give you a bit more pickup, it’s certainly not life changing. But add to that the fact that the Civic Coupe weighs approximately 273 lbs. less than the Volkswagen Jetta and that boosts the advantage a little bit further, delivering a more enjoyable driving experience behind the wheel.
