After looking at the chart, you can see that there are a number of important differences between the 2016 Jetta and 2016 Passat. The Jetta is a compact sedan that offers an incredibly affordable price at the base trim, but has options for additional luxury and comfort at higher trim levels. The base 1.4-liter I-4 engine is perfect for commuters, and offers more power than in previous years.

The 2016 Passat is a midsize sedan, making it a roomier option for drivers who want to offer more space for passengers and cargo. With a higher price and a more powerful base engine, the Passat has a slightly lower fuel economy rating.

Both sedans come fitted with the all-new MIB II infotainment system which offers driver assistance features and extra security apps. Both the Passat and the Jetta have Bluetooth compatibility, USB ports, standard 5-inch touchscreen in the control centers and cruise control.
