How Does the 2019 Volkswagen Passat Compare to the new Honda Accord? 

For many drivers in Orange Park and Jacksonville Beach, Volkswagen and value are interchangeable words. With a vehicle lineup built to provide high-quality cars that deliver luxury touches while still staying affordable, Volkswagen can be a tough act to follow. 

Case in point? The new Volkswagen Passat. An attractive mid-sized sedan that offers everything from top-tier safety to a fuel-efficient engine, the Passat provides a robust driving experience with a competitive price. 

As impressive as cars like the 2019 Passat is, however, it's not without its competitors. Popular models like the Honda Accord also provide robust feature packages and solid performance options that help them deliver an elevated level of value. 

When you're looking for a new car in Saint Augustine and Riverside, FL, it only makes sense to take a look at which option will offer you more. 

The 2019 Volkswagen Passat 

As with much of the rest of the Volkswagen lineup, "value" is the core of what the 2019 Passat brings to the table. While the Passat only offers a handful of different trims, its suite of standard features is impressively robust. When you add in the premium comfort of its leatherette interior and its solid and efficient powertrain, it's not hard to understand why many Daytona drivers have made it their vehicle of choice.

The 2019 Honda Accord 

A trusted choice for many drivers, the Honda Accord has been a midsize bestseller for many years. Recently updated with a fresh design, the newest version of the Accord offers seven different trims, three engine options, and a solid selection of available features. 

Performance: 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 (192 horsepower, 192 pounds-feet of torque, 30/38 miles per gallon), 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 (252 horsepower, 273 pounds-feet of torque, 22/32 miles per gallon), 2.0-liter inline + AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor (212 horsepower, 232 pounds-feet of torque, 48/48 miles per gallon

Should I Buy the Volkswagen Passat or the Honda Accord? 

The Honda Accord is a good sedan with some genuine advantages over the Passat. The most obvious are its trim and engine options. The Accord offers a much wider range of different models, and its engine options can deliver more efficiency and a higher level of performance than you'll get in the Passat. 

The thing about the Accord, unfortunately, is that its trim options, by and large, deliver less than you'll get from the Passat's standard features. While their base models are comparably priced, you're going to get a lot more driving home in a new Passat than you will in the Accord without an extra upgrade. The Passat's superior value makes it the better buy, in our opinion.
