2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2017 Chevy Cruz

A car should be a companion on the road. When you're making such an important investment, you need to be sure that you're getting the car that fits your needs best and that will last for many miles spent on the road. Sometimes it can be tough to find the defining differences between competing models—after all, manufacturers do design cars in response to what's on the market—even when those differences could potentially make or break your interest in the car. So before you hit the lot, take a look at competing cars side by side to get a little perspective on what's in store.

Let's take a look at the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze. Both VW and Chevy are known for making dependable, long-lasting cars that deliver a host of up-to-date options for drivers as new technology hits the market. In a sense, it's kind of impossible to make a bad decision when looking at both of these models, but your choice in cars should always reflect what's best for you, not just what will do well enough.

Why Should I Buy the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta?

These two sedans are remarkably similar. They offer modest MSRPs, similar engine capacity, and even similar MPG ratings. However, the 2017 Jetta has a few reasons to shine a little brighter than the 2017 Chevy Cruze. Perhaps the most decadent of these reasons rests in the Jetta's available Fender sound system. As many people would agree, time spent on the road is always more enjoyable when you can bathe in the sound of your favorite music, radio program, or audiobook—and Fender is sure to deliver an incredible sound experience.

In addition to the available sound, Volkswagen offers an incredible host of safety features that can make driving the Jetta a downright relaxing experience. The Jetta also offers multiple engine options so that drivers can have a car that works best with that driver's needs and preferences.
